has anyone experienced burning pain in their hands and feet as a side effect of lupus?

    Tingling and numbness during flares, but not burning my dear. Please consult with your doctor, take care.

    I get very hot feet, like my soles have just walked on hot coals. Have never heard anyone else mention this symptom but I know it must be lupus related.

    Yes, I have Peripheral Neuropathy caused by lupus which causes nerve pain. It can feel like a burning sensation, numbness and tingling. I see a Neurologist who treats my Neuropathy.

    Possible plantar fascitiis - lots of research done on this. I had it in both feet for a year - still flares up from time to time. Cushion shoes were the answer after spending thousands on treatments. Didnt solve it - minimized it.

    Yes honey I did at one time. I would be barefoot and would suddenly feel like I was standing on a hot coal.Not long after these episodes started I got tingling in my feet,then everywhere at random pains like electric shocks. That would come on out of the blue. They wouldn't last long but they hurt terribly. Found out I had neuropathy.  I have it in lower limbs,also cerebral neuropathy. See a neurologist.

    Yes, but not recently. For lack of a better explanation (I attended a private catholic school overseas for 5 years and they were pro corporal punishment) the palms of my hands and the bottom of my feet would feel as though they had been slapped repeatedly by a ruler. Thankfully my Lupus symptoms have greatly improved over the last 3 years, and I have not been experiencing this lately.

    The reason for lupus is likely that results from a combination of your genetics and your environment. It appears that people with an inherited predisposition for lupus may develop the disease when they come into contact with something in the environment that can trigger lupus. The cause of lupus in most cases, however, is unknown.

    I've had intense burning in the feet--mostly toes, sometimes bottom of the feet--for years now. Neurologist did an EMG which showed no nerve damage, and wouldn't dx neuropathy specifically for that (have other neuropathy dxs.) So they won't do more than minimum to treat it, despite almost no relief.  :( One of my worst symptoms, since it is daily, intense pain and interrupts sleep, activity level, etc.

    So has anyone found anything that can help to ease the pain or alleviate the symptoms? I don't have lupus but my wife does & her burns are flaring up again & being very aggressive.
