I was just about to post something about this and remembered reading this not long ago. Do you have any other weird ANS problems? My doctor briefly said something about how mine was all messed up right now but said no one knows much about lupus and ANS problems. I have been complaining of a racing heart for MONTHS and she never wants to listen to me and when I went yesterday my sitting heart rate was also very high, 163. I also have Raynauds and lately I have been having the weirdest sensations in my legs and I keep getting really hot out of nowhere. She was saying all of these things are controlled by the autonomic nervous system, but that I was just always having problems like this? Other than my heart rate I dont know what she was implying there because I have never had this weird vibrating feeling or feeling of ice cold water in my veins or getting really hot until recently. Have you had any problems like this too? After saying all of this she chalked all of my symptoms up to my recent steroid treatments. So Im not sure.
