Peripheral neuritis: Tori, this may or may not relate to the lupus. Lots of people have little sensitive places on the skin that can at times be painful and at times can tingle or feel like it's getting goosebumps or even go numb. Of course if the pain is very severe or there are other symptoms like visual problems or slurred speech or nausea you should discuss with your doctor. You can try rubbing the spot.
