Is this heel numbness normal with RA? Lately I've been getting numbness just on my heels.

Hi QTPie. Sorry you have been getting this numbness. Neuropathy in the feet is possible with RA, through the disease or some treatment side effects. It can also be caused by a host of other issues. For this reason you should bring this symptom (and any new symptoms) to the attention of your doctor. This article from one of our contributors looks at neuropathy and RA: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/fraying-nerves/. Hope you find some answers soon.
