Wondering If Others With RA Suffer From Nerve-like Symptoms

Hey Cynthia.

I’m no doctor but I have Poly RA and Fibromyalgia and from what I’ve researched and feeling is my RA pain is in the joints and medications help. My fibromyalgia is a muscle pain and no meds help that,so I know of right now. For the tingling and numbness, yes I get hands and feet bad. My fingers were swan necking I had to get a operation on my right hand it was so bad my joints would lock up and I had to use my other hand too unlock them. Now my toes on both feet are curling to the point that when I walk the joints are pushing up on each other making it hard to walk some days. The term the doctor used was crows feet. I also just recently go plantar fasciitis in both heals. So for the tingling I just put up with it and now is part of my life.
For my arthritis well I do take CBD oil and pain pills when I’m really bad for my fibromyalgia I can read the signs like weather changes, stress, muscles ache, lack of energy so for fibromyalgia I can’t take nothing just push through the pain. It gets so bad that it shuts me down can’t even go to work. So it’s couch time. It happened just this Friday at 3am massive migraine because of the rain coming had a ice pack on my neck and forehead just to ease the pain. Then had enough energy to make it to the couch in a lot of pain to find a spot to fall asleep that went on till around 5pm and like a light switch gone like nothing happened.

Hi Debrah. I can only speak for myself on this one. Others may experience it differently. Hypoglycemia starts with hunger pangs, a slight burning sensation in my stomach and nausea. This is how I feel every single morning. If I do not eat, I start to feel light headed. If I ignore my symptoms, next comes feeling disoriented, uncoordinated and faint. At this stage, trying to eat or drink can result in vomiting. Eating every 4 hours keeps my symptoms in check. I do not require medication.
