It is my understanding that Lupus and MS are sister diseases and very possible that if you have one there is a possibility that you will get one of the other, but I have not found any people with both, at least not in my experience as an MS sufferer with Fibromyalgia: I was diagnosed in 1993 with lupus. Since then have been dx with secondary fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis at L4 and L5, degenerative arthritis of the spine, and frozen facet (?). Last month I had an epidural for relief of back pain and am scheduled for another next week. I seem to have a lot of the pains and tinglings that I have read about in these posts, Especially in my legs. They hurt all the time and sometimes I get sharp little pin prick pains in them. At other times I think I feel a bug or something crawling on them, but there's nothing there. Shoulder and neck pain. Hands and fingers go numb at night and sometimes during the day, like when I'm driving. Sometimes my legs have such a burning in them, that it' hard to keep them still, especially when sitting or lying down. Can lupus and MS overlap? Or are a lot of the symptoms just very similar? God bless you all.
