In brief: Merits evaluation.

Called paresthesias, these symptoms are often caused by nerve root impingement at the level of the cervical spine.
Ones doctor can take a careful history, perform an examination and, if that seems a possible cause, arrange for imaging of the cervical spine. Other causes are possible but less likely.

In brief: Most commonly,

e., nerve compression at wrist or elbow. If you have lupus, you would be more susceptible to peripheral nerve issues and best to have this evaluated by your physician.
