Ok so things have been pretty good.... I have been feeling alright except for the fatigue every now and then. But then a few days ago I noticed my fingers and finger tips started peeling. A pretty noticeable amount. This struck me as odd because I remember that my fingers started peeling about 2 weeks after I had my son which was about 6 mos ago. Shortly after is when all my lupus symptoms started. So naturally, my fingers started peeling a few days ago and now I feel like I may be starting another flare up! My left elbow has started to swell again, my knees are hurting really bad, I've also been having a seriously stiff neck, back and side pain. Do you think the finger peeling is related to the lupus? Not sure how normal it is to have peeling fingers every 6 mos.
