I have RA in the shoulders and this last flare I experienced what is described as nerve damage (entrapment) My shoulders and upper arms burn like they are on fire, then I woke up in the middle of the night and it felt like electricity going from my elbow to my wrist. Freaked me out. Now for the past couple of days I have burning, tingling and numbness in the upper forearm, wrist, thumb and palm of my hand. My right arm is the one affected mostly but the left arm chimes in a bit. I called my doctor right away and he has me put down for an EMP test. I was wondering if anyone here has experienced nerve damage and what they had done for it? I have read that Plaquinel could cause it or the RA itself.
