Re: Does Lupus Cause Numbness (response to armslee)

Hello Armslee,

Regarding your question of sun sensitivies, I don't have the hallmark butterfly rash but my cheeks by my nose are a little raised and dry and more red than usual, it gets better and worse. I have a rheumatologist appt. today so they will do the necessary blood work...i will ask lots of questions and post back here to let you know how it went. Do you have any vision problems? I have blurred vision in my R eye for the past 2 months now and I am seeing a lot of floaters, also some light sensitivies. I am a bit concerned because I know MRIs could come out normal, without any plaques, if MS is in its beginning stages, so it is hard to tell... how long have you been having your symptoms? Also, if you don't mind my asking, how old are you? I am 19.

Thanks,
Michelle
