Anyone else have swelling between knuckles or horrible hand pain!?

Hi I am having the worse swelling between my knuckles and my hands hurt really bad. Is this a Lupus sx anyone else has had? I called my doc today to set up an appt. Just typing this makes me cringe

Please let me know if this sounds familiar. THNX!!

My hands hurt every single day, so I would think it's just part of the whole Lupus cycle.

Swelling in my fingers is really painful. I think it is part of the lupus package. My toes don't swell through. Thankfully. I did see my Rheumy about it and he said nothing unusual about it so I guess I'll just suffer it through. Typing does hurt but it's part of my job so I just have to take a nsaid and buck up.

Hi Motheroffour06,

I'm sorry you are in so much pain right now. Over the winter I had extreme joint pain in the fingers and wrists. However, my fingers never swelled so on the external view everything looked fine. It hurt to type, to staple items. I couldn't pick up a basket at the super market.

It can be very frustrating. Has your doctor placed you on Plaquenil? That has helped along with a good NSAID when I had the hand pain flare. I hope you feel better soon!!!
