You need to talk to your doctor about this. If it is Raynaud's there are meds to help it. Numbness can be a sign or nerve damage or such and must also be dealt with. Call your doctor and let him know what's going on! I have a lot of pain with my lupus, unrelenting pain, thank God I have a doctor who helps. I would have cracked a long time ago with out his help! I feel the weather fronts cause a lot of discomfort for me, but sometimes it isn't that. Gets lots of rest and do whatever you can to get comfortable, like hot baths or heating pad. There are even those new stick on heat pads that I use a lot! Good luck and hang in there! Hugs!

Again, please talk to your doctor! Lots of things can cause numbness and it needs to be looked into!! One can buy the stick on heat pads at any store, they are near the Advil and Motrin. Bright red and orange box. Thermocare is what they are called, I call them Fantastic!! Now, go see your doctor!!
