Is tingling in hands a sign of lupus?

Maybe something else: Although lupus is known as a master of masquerade because it can mimic virtually any disease, tingling in the hands alone is much more likely from nerve compression such as carpal tunnel, ulnar nerve entrapment, diabetic neuropathy, and/or cervical disc disease etc... A good, thorough history and physical exam by your doc can reveal what you may have. So, consult doc. Good luck.
