Swollen fingers, joints, and cold hands
:?: Its been over a year and a half since my diagnosis, so I'm still learning things about lupus every day. I've noticed that ever since the weather changed (its been very cold lately) my fingers and hands have been achey and swollen at times. Is that arthritis acting up? Also, I've noticed that the joints in my right hand (my dominant hand) are more swollen and more achey than my left. Also, my right hand and fingertips feel so cold. Why is it affecting my right hand more? Sorry for so many questions. I'm just curious if anyone has experienced this too. :?
