[QUOTE=ladybud;5140658]The neuropathy pain is usually more distal like lower legs and feet where the myositis pain is usually more proximal like thighs and upper arms. Myositis pain will go along with times when muscles feel weak and your underlying disease is flaring, whereas neuropathy pain is more of a steady or daily thing without as much fluctuation. Both can cause a burning sensation, but neuropathy usually involves numbness as well. I wish you well and hope the B12 and folate help with this.[/QUOTE]

Ladybug, how long have you had myositis? Also, does your thighs burn with the weakness? I do know that your cpk levels do not always co inside with the disease flaring. I think that is why I am always so confused. I am sure your lupus also causes muscle and joint problems as my scleroderma does and Hashimotos. My pain in my thighs are more intense when I try to walk for a few mins straight in other words, if I was to walk down a long hallway after about six mins or so they would start to burn and get extremely weak. My neuropathy did start in my lower legs and feet and have gotten worst also, more burning, tingling. but I can live with this. Even my arms hurting so much, but the walking and the legs, get to me.
