Many Lupus Warriors experience foot issues like swelling and pain. While they can make it difficult to work, move around, and sleep, they can often be dealt with easily.
Foot problems are a common symptom of lupus. The foot issues can take many different forms, including:
- Cold or chilly feet.
Like many other symptoms that Lupus Warriors have to deal with, foot issues can range in severity from agonizingly painful, to mildly uncomfortable. They can also involve any part of the foot, from the ankles to the toes, including the middle and back of the foot.
For people with lupus, foot issues can make walking and movement uncomfortable and make activities, both work and fun, challenging. Foot issues can also make sleeping more difficult as they can be painful even when not being stood on. And, a lack of sleep can really impact overall health, lower quality of life, and make other lupus symptoms worse.
