Is it lupus or something else?


Posted by kgreenephd

I am a 57 year old woman with chronic discoid lupus and lupus paniculitis. Even though I have suspicious blood work, I do not have SLE. Last year, I had paresthesia in my hands and fingers--that has diminished considerably, but they are still sensitive to cold. During the last six months, I have developed mild but progressive (and persistent) paresthesia in my right leg, above my knee, on the outside of my leg. Are these related to lupus? Or is it likely something else? It's mild enough that it doesn't require medication, but I'm a recreational runner and cyclist, and I want to stay that way
