Red,hot hands

Anyone ever get red, hot hands (and sometimes feet) intermittently? I have lupus, too, but this is a new symptom for me. My right index finger is actually quite warm and red as I type this. My hand will get noticably red and warm, for no reason.

My feet get hot, or feel like they're hot. It can be very cool in a room but my feet feel hot and I will have to take off my shoes and socks. I also need to have my feet free from sheets, blankets etc. when I sleep, because they feel overly warm.

Do you have any pain in your hands when they're hot? I have neuropathic pain in my feet that seems to be exacerbated by heat.

They feel tight and strange....my feet are the same as yours--I cannot stand to have them get warm. My hands and feet get so red, it looks cartoonish, as if someone shaded those parts of my body with colored pencils.

I am updating: this is now happening on my nose, the outside of my ears, and still on my hands. I looked it up, and a disorder called erythomyelgia came up. Apparently it is associated with m.s
I see my neuro on the 29th, and I plan bringing it up. Apparently that disease is quite rare, but not in the m.s population.

One of my symptoms is burning feet. That is how they feel internally but not externally. I have to soak mine in cold water that helps. I also have to find cool areas on the sheet at night they get so hot and uncomfortable. I too get hot hands but not as bad as my feet. Let us know if you find anything out that could help. When I was younger I used to have poor circulation especially to the feet. I was so embarassed about the red colour.

This is called 5-palm heat in Chinese medicine.  See an acupuncturist; they can help!  I had hot hands and feet for 10 years before I started learning chinese medicine and learned it is a common symptom.  It's called deficiency in Chinese medicine terms.  The acupuncturist can work with you to balance your body which will stop the yin deficient heat.
