Question shaking when cold

Hello everyone Im Michelle or Chele, I have Lupus Ive been sick for years only recently diagnosed. One of my many symptoms is that when I get cold I sometimes shake uncontrolably.I also have some numbness and tingeling so Im wondering if this is related to some nerve damage. How do they test for this?
Thanks for your help!
Chele

Hi Chelle -
Have you been dx with Raynaud's on top of the lupus? Do your fingers/toes get white/blue when you're cold and despite trying to warm them up, they just don't get warm easily? Are your feet, fingers, nose, ears constantly cold in cold temps? The tingling could be related to the Raynaud's Phenomenon or it could be something else.

Talk to your doctor about it. You might want to note how often/how long/where the tingling happens and if you were chilled in any way - that info will be helpful to your doc and to you.

Keep us posted!

They get very cold, but not blue. They do get numb and tingly- alot. Also often my right hand is freezing and left is not at all.I haven't been diagnosed with Raynards yet. I want to see a Neurologist but have to see Rheumoligist next.
Thank you for your time!
Hugs Chele

Hmmmm. Take a look at Raynaud's on the web - do a search on ***** and see if that "kinda" fits you. Also, do some homework ahead of time for the Rheumy - make a list of symptoms and their frequency, questions and any meds you're on as well as any significant illnesses or medical occurrances you've had. (I'm notorious for bizarre infections/reactions that "stump" the doctors)

Keep us posted!
