I get very similar feelings, like being a positive and negative charge magnet. The tips of my fingers act as though the circulation has been cut off with pain and pins n needles type sensations. Bl**dy awful. I feel 4 u. J. XX

Sounds like Raynaud's &/or vasculitis, hope the rheumy can help. X

There is a Raynaud's site on health unlocked too. You get get to it at the very top of this page where it says my communities.

Best wishes. X

I had something similar and my Rheumatologist put me on Prednisolone, this stopped it immediately. I was also put on methotrexate which builds up over a much longer period of time than Prednisolone but they do get rid of that pain!!

Good luck
