Our expert says:
I think you should get a second opinion from your neurologist as this can definitely be SLE or ME related. The steps would be to
Do a physical exam and see if this hand is weaker than the other
Do a nerve conduction test to see if the nerve is affected
If the nerve is fine, the problem can lie centrally - either in the neck or in the brain and you may need a Brainscan or neck MR scan.
ME usually is not sore - SLE can be sore if it is caused by a neuritis or nerve inflammation.
