Burning on top of feet

Newly diagnosed with RA on steroids right now.Go next week to be put on methotrexate.While working today the tops of both of my feet started burning like they were on fire and made it difficult for me to stand. Has anyone else experienced this?

  1. Hi cochran1041. It turns out the burning feeling in the feet can be a side-effect of prednisone. As with any new symptom or potential side-effect, you should bring this to the attention of your doctor. Sorry to hear about the new diagnosis and know that you are always welcome here for information and support. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
