This is the first time I’ve written a post although I’ve been part of the group for a few months now.
I have had RA for about 25 years now and for a lot of that time it’s been mostly well controlled. I take Methotrexate and Embrel along with folic acid. I have recently also been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and take Tramadol and Naproxan for that. The past 2 years or so have been a bit tricky, with many flare ups. I was taking Methotrexate by tablet but have been put back on the injection as it seems to work better for me. The strange new symptoms I have been having are a weird sort of tingling in my arms and legs. It is very difficult to describe and I can only say it feels like all my nerve endings are just under the skin and its a sort of jangling nerve sensation. It’s mostly at night. It’s not painful but just really uncomfortable and makes sleep impossible. I have mentioned it my RA doctor who asked me to come off my two injections for two weeks and have my bloods redone . This is also because at last blood test my white cell count was very low and CRP was up. I have had continual infections for three months.
Has anybody had this weird tingling thing and if so what is it. Is it the disease or the medications?
