Are pins and needles and nose bleeds common with SLE

Hey everyone,

I recently have been having pins and needles mainly in my feet and hands and when i go to stand or pick something up its like they give out and i either fall or drop what ever i was picking up.

i also when im still (lying down or sitting on the couch) get the feeling like there are a thousand bugs all over me and its so annoying!!

I have also started getting nosebleads.

its like it never stops, can someone tell me if this is normal as i am very new to lupus. I am seeing my Rheumy on the 11th of feb but wondering if i need to make an earlier appointment?

Any advise would be appreciated

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i want you to know that these symptoms of paresthesia have a broad range of differentials. I would like you to get evaluated by local physician and let them have a look.

Take care
