Does Lupus Cause Numbness And Tingling??

Hello. I have been posting most of my questions in the MS section of this site because that is what initially alerted me. I have had two MRIs, one of the brain, one of the cspine and an eye exam and all normal. My situation started with numbness in my hands and feet that has been replaced with extreme tightness, cracking and pain in my joints (fingers, wrists, ankles, toes). I am going to see a rheumatologist on Monday to discuss my symptoms and have an ANA blood test. Is lupus known to cause numbness and tingling of the extremities? I have been told that MS could be misdiagnosed as lupus, as the two share many of the same symptoms... is this one of them? Thank you for your help!
