I have Lupus, no diabetes or kidney disorder. My feet feel

Customer Question

I have Lupus, no diabetes or kidney disorder. My feet feel like I have bunched up socks on the balls of my feet. My Rheumatologist, Dr Pickerell; who is also supposed to be a neurologists sent me to my PC doctor, who referred me to a doctor that wasn't interested in my symptoms and would take 1 wk to review my records. She then would decide IF she would see me. I have very very very little regard for this kind of medicine. I'm a human being, not a cash box.

This is Dr. Bonilla.

I understand your concerns. In some cases lupus can cause neuropathy that presents with symptoms like the one you described. Medication for lupus and neuropathy can be used. At this point you need to have blood work done to check the lupus activity and be evaluated for possible therapy for neuropathy. Depending on the findings of your testing, treatment can be offered. Let me know if you have other questions. Please rate my answer.

Just what I expected--go to you Rhuematologist. I did. He sent me to my PC. He sent me to a neurologist that wanted my records and would take 10 days to decide if she wanted to treat me. So, another in the line of 'sorry we can't help you'.

Without further testing information is difficult to get a full picture of the problem. I can let other expert help you.
