    Smile New to WeHaveLupus

    Hello everyone I am new to this site just got diagnosed a couple of weeks ago and I was just trying to find out if there was anyone out there with the same symptoms as me. I have been having tingling that shoots through my whole body. I was wondering if this is a real symptom of lupus.

    Thanks

    hi martha,

    welcome.
    yes this symptom is quite common.
    a few people here call them zingers.

    please read a few of the older posts,
    they are our personal experiences with lupus.

    once you understand a little more,
    it is not as scary as it seams.
    please feel free to ask questions.

    I used to tell people that I felt like a robot that was short circuiting! Yes, we understand and many of us have them as well

    Sorry I haven't been on sooner, but I wanted to thank you for your replies that makes me feel better knowing that this is from the lupus. I think that it is the worse feeling I have ever felt in my body.

    Welcome to WHL Martha,

    I get the same sort of pain. Peripheral Neuropathy is what causes my "shock treatments". They can be mild, or they can be cringe inducing. I've had pretty good luck with a med called Neurontin. It does a fair job of controlling the intensity and frequency of the pain.

    This is a pretty common symptom with certain autoimmune disorders, including Lupus.

    Hang in there,

    Rob
