4 lupus -- however I have numbnes and tingling thr0ught0ut my fingertips! It hurts soo bad but now its mainly wen I get up in the morning... So I guess my question is do u think I can still have lupus athough I was already tested 4 it and also -- can some1 plz plz plz give me sum advice on wat 2 do 2 make the numbness and tingling go away......
It could be raynaud's phenomena. Your fingertips get white in the cold?
While raynaud's can be nothing but an annoyance, it doesn't mean it shouldn't be checked out. I know my investigating my raynaud's I tested for positive ana which led me to a rheumatologist.
But since you already have checked it out, guess you got your bases covered. Just keep an eye out for other things. If the fingers are the only thing that are bothering you, maybe nothing to worry about. But I would try to arrange for some regular blood work to be done every few months.
Just because you've been tested 4 times doesn't mean you don't have lupus, I was tested every 2 months for 2 years and it never said I had lupus untill I had an actual flare up and even that only showed up on a kidney biopsy...So theres not much you can do but make sure your doctor does regular check ups.
Just remember to wear gloves all year round. During driving, washing dishes, even typing. Take yoga, pilate class. Anything to let go of the daily stress/worries. Go and see endrocinologist doctors also. Cuz lupus can flares up when your hormone unbalance.
