I've not had that exact type of pain. However, Lupus patients are prone to chronic Paresthesia (i a sensation of tingling, pricking,numbness, and pain). Chronic paresthesia indicates a problem with the functioning of neurons and/or irritation to the nerve due to inflammation to the tissue caused by connditions such as Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or other auto-immune disorders.
Medications offered can include the immunosuppressant prednisone, intravenous gamma globulin (IVIG), anticonvulsants such as gabapentin or gabitril and antiviral medication, amongst others, according to the underlying cause (such as Lupus). Mention this to your doctor to see what type of treatment he feels is necessary. I wish you the very best!
Peace and Blessings
