I get the numb toes, feet and hands. I think that they need to test you for Peripheral Neuropathy. I also think that due to the dry eyes that they should test you for Sjogrens Syndrome too as this disease can cause the numbness or neuropathy also and the muscle aches. I have no idea about the puffyness under the eyes. Maybe Oluwa would know about that. Do you know if they tested you for SSA and SSB antibodies?
The way that they can test you for neuropathy is by a pin test. I had that test done when the Rheumatologist sent me to a Neruosurgeon. The Neurosurgeon ordered that test and it showed that I have Neuropathy.
Have you been tested for a Vitamin B12 deficiency to see if your absorbing vitamin B12?
Do you get sores in the corners of your mouth a lot? I am just wondering is all.
