just a stupid finger...
My index finger is very sore. It sounds stupid because it is just my finger, but it has been a year now and though in the begining it would let up it now it no longer does. Feels bruised and swollen though it doesn't look swollen, I cannot use it to hold a pen, coffee cup, tear a packet of tea. the end is numb, finely numb if that makes sense.
I have raynauds but this is more constent and less colorful than those attacks. It gets worse in the sun. It gets worse just before everything else gets worse.
Is it neuropathy? That's what the dr's PA speculated once but I didn't press it because other things were more bothersome at the time. the onter fingers on that hand (only my right hand) also get some numbness in the tips but not as severe or as frequent, and they are not painful like this one.
thank you for letting me ask this stupid question - it is more of an annoyance than a real issue, but then again it's starting to affect my life, so.
much love to all my lupie friends -
