The tingling could be renaud's syndrome - is it due to cold? or it could be carpal tunnel, or heaven knows! If it continues, do talk to your doc.

Thank you Hatlady. I think it is time for a 6 month checkup in November so I will ask her.I had to go in to see her a little over a week ago. Itwasn't my reglar appt but I am having a horrid flare right now. My rheumie came recomended and sure enough she didn't beat around the bush with the diagnosis of lupus. My concern was that when I had to make an appt this last time she acted so busy. Like, she had one hand on the doorknob. IU felt so hurried that I couldn't remeber everything I had to ask her. I had a list but I felt bad like I was taking all her time if I ask all the questons

I know when I had tendonitis I had really bad tingling in my fingers, but I also had huge lumps on my wrists. I didn't have broken veins or discoloration either. It could really be a variety of things.


As far as taking up your rheumies time, take it. You are paying for it and its your health. If you have questions ask them. Its her job to answer them and make you as healthy as possible. Just make sure she remembers that. :wink:
