RLS vs. Lupus

Hi, It was nice to find this board. I have wondered if I might have RLS for sometime. I also have
Lupus, and because my legs were bothering me so much as well as some new stiffness in my
hands, I finally broke down and scheduled lab tests and a doctors appointment. I am wondering
if anyone else has both of these conditions and could give me some pointers on questions to ask.
From what I have read RLS is described more as a "unpleasant or creepy, crawly sensation"
in the legs. My legs do bother me more at night as described, but I would describe it more as
a "deep, dull, continuous aching." I have had cellulitis in the past and have residual swelling from
that. At times I have to elevate my legs because of the swelling, but when I elevate them they
really begin hurting then. I find myself just wanting to move them constantly. From what I have
read RLS sounds a lot like Lupus in that symptoms are different for different people. Could this
possibly be RLS? What questions should I ask the doctor? Thanks!
