muscle spasms and twitches

I was just diagnosed in April, but have probably had RA for a long time. I have had trouble finding a medication without bad side effects. I recently developed muscles spasms and twitches, mostly around the thumb area and affecting my fingers. Is this common?

  1. Spasms not so much from what i have seen/heard. Twitching I would say yes to a degree. In the fingers was my 1st,then a whole arm, sometimes foot or lower leg. Common I am not sure.
