Thumb Twitching

Thumb Twitching

Hi there! Over the past couple weeks I’ve had thumb twitching In the fleshy part of my thumb, near wrist. It twitches almost constantly, but is mostly painless. I do have carpal tunnel and severe and active RA. This twitching, however, is causing me anxiety...has anyone else had this? I’d feel better if I wasn’t alone, I think.

I am on Plaquenil for about 3 months, wonder if this could be the reason too.
