My hands feel fat and painful, the pain is in the index fingers and thumb on both hands but my left is worse. I get pins and needles and they feel like they go up my arm. I can't grip very well and I seem to be dropping things a lot. I've had blood tests and my RA nurse said that there is no sign of a flare. Been back to doctors who say I've got to go for tests. Is this carpal tunnel or has anyone with RA had this? Thank you for reading. Kirsty
