    Yes, try looking up peripheral neuropathy. It seems to be common in some AI diseases, especially in Sjogren's. I think that it is common in Lupus, too. Hopefully, SaySusie or Rob will comment on that.
    PN often starts in the toes and feet, and then gradually works its way to the knees, and then jumps to the fingers and hands. I have it in my feet, so my toes are cold and numb, and I feel like I'm wearing socks even when I'm not. It's been affecting my fingers and hands a bit lately.
    Hope this helps.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Hi Meagen,
    My dr says if PN is caused by lupus it will reverse when treatmet starts to work, becasue it is caused by nerve inflamation and not permanent nerve damage like diabetes.
    I have it only in one hand and one foot so they arn't sure why, with Lupus it's usually like you have it; the same on both sides.
    much love to all my lupie friends -
