Hi,

I have a question regarding swollen upperlegs.
It is so painful with tingling in both legs. Like an electruc shck through both legs.

Is this a symptom from Lupus or is iit something else?

Thank you for your help

Artist25,

Have you called your dr lately? The swelling sounds like edema. The shooting pains may be neuropathy? I am not sure; though it sounds like it. My Mom was a diabetic and had the zingers from neuropathy. If it is indeed that, Neurotin seems to help relieve it. I have heard that on this board; no personal experience though.

I hope you get to feeling better soon.
