So I often notice when I wake up at night that my fingers are swollen to the point that my wedding ring hurts and/or I can't get it off. Also sometimes when I get up to use the washroom, my feet feel like I am walking on puffy, uneven soles that almost burn when I walk on solid surfaces. I have no idea if this is SLE, or age or pre-menopausal stuff? ( I mention the last one as I am mid 30s but when mentioned I was having night sweats (not anymore) my doc made me wonder if this was just inevitable)

I am not overly concerned but as I have no physician's appointments currently scheduled for a few months, am wondering if I need to mention it to someone sooner. It goes away fairly quickly once I am up and moving for the day.

Thanks,
Bunny
