    Hi Dozzi! Long time no see!
    The symptoms you are describing sounds like you may have a pinched nerve in your neck. Have you ever had neck problems before? You may want to ask your doctor about doing some diagnostic tests to find out if that is where the problem is coming from. Many times it can be helped with physical therapy, other times it may redquire injections or surgery. The sooner you find out, the sooner you can find something to help.

    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.

    I don't have it in my arms, but you just described exactly what's going on in my legs.
    To do what is right is not always easy, to do what is easy is not always right.
    ssh49tn responded:
    Yes, I do have the tingling, & some numbness too. But, it's even worse in my legs. And, I DON'T have a pinched nerve. I'm not sure that mine is from the lupus though, or from the diabetes, or if it's something else. I did find out though, that some statins can cause a neuropathy problem, & I am currently taking Crestor for my high cholesterol. With lupus, unfortunately, it can imitate other diseases & symptoms. I also had a bad thyroid, which one side was shut down with the radioactive iodine, & the other side has been surgically removed. And a lot of the symptoms from that are the same ones that come with lupus. Just keep bugging your doctor about it, until they do something!
