Not all swelling bad: Swelling in the hands in the morning, or swelling in the feet in the evening is often due to water retention, and is harmless. Avoiding excess salt, and using support hose can help. Persistent swelling that is localized to joints, or associated with redness, warmth, or tenderness may be signs of arthritis. ...Read more

Can lupus cause palms of hands and feet to get real red/blushed, sometimes blotchy and sometimes they feel "prickily" when they are red/hot.

Neuropathy: It is possible. However blotchy prickly hands or feet with hot sensation are not specific findings of a particular disease. Other conditions like raynaud phenomenon or autonomic nervous system dysfunction or neuropathy can cause this presentation. Consider checking your sugar and vitamin B12 levels. Please check with your physicians for proper diagnosis and treatment. I hope you feel well soon. ...Read more

With rsd, lupus, chronic edema in feet, I follow with severe, seizing cramps in hands and feet...Like small "charlie horses?!? "

With rsd, lupus, chronic edema in feet, I follow with severe, seizing cramps in hands and feet...Like small "charlie horses?!? "

Decreased oxygen: With the rsd, lupus and chronic edema this would naturally lead to some kind of compromise of blood flow to the feet. When the blood flow is diminished, this will decrease the amount of oxygen to the feet and hands while building up Lactic Acid that leads to your charlie horses/cramps. See your doctor for treatment options. ...Read more

My ANA levels are high I took the lupus test it was at a 5 but I still have pains, tingling, numbness in hands, feet, arms, legs. Told me fibromyalga

Question?: I am not sure what you are asking. The ANA is a screening test for lupus but can be seen in numerous other diseases and in people who have no disease. I assume the lupus test you mention is a dna antibody. This test does not have to positive to have lupus. Finally, about 30% of lupus patients also have fibromyalgia. See a rheumatologist if you have not done so already. ...Read more

My ANA was negative. Is it possible to still have RA, Lupus, or Fibromyalgia? Lyrica (pregabalin) is NOT helping the leg/arm/hand/foot pain. CRP is 6.5.

Yes due to FALSE NEG: Every test in the world has a FALSE NEGATIVE rate which tells what percentage of the time a test comes out negative but really it should say positive. It is rare for someone to have RA, LUPUS, or FM and have a positive ANA.... on the order of much less than 1%. will be FALSE NEGATIVE. ...Read more
