Hi. My first "burn" was along shins & long bones of arms, dx'ed by small-town drs. in mid-1960's as shin splints. (Ha. I played tennis a lot, so that was what the drs. thought was logical.) In time, joints also began acting up.
Lupus is a connective tissue disease, which meant precisely NOTHING to me when I first saw the phrase. The human body has a lot of it, and lupus can inflame and affect anywhere from a little to a lot.
I'm subacute, meaning no involvement of major organs. But I have ongoing ongoing pain & fatigue. But in lupus, that's LUCKY.
How about you, how are you doing? Do you have a diagnosis? Are you being treated? Sending you best wishes, Vee
Yes! My feet (bottoms) burn so bad that I have a hard time getting to sleep at night. I also have burning in the calves and hips, thigh areas on occasion. It seems to come in cycles. I have tried showers, hot and cool, topical anesthetics, and even rub ice cubes on the soles of my feet to get relief. It is aggravating to say the least.
