Hi everyone.

I have a question. I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with SLE. There has been a symptom of something i've had for years and now I wonder if it's got something to do with my SLE.

There are times I can be sitting still reading a book or in bed sound asleep and my hands will start turning red and burning. Literaly like i'm sticking them in a fire and you can litterally feel the heat coming off them.

I check my blood pressure. It is ok, I check my blood glucose and it is fine. There are times the only way it will go away is putting them under running water. It littlerally feels like I am about to spontaneously combust. Every once in a while my face will do it for a few minutes and my feet. But it is basically my hands.

So, if it is SLE, will medications help this?
