Hi all. I have constant pins & needles in both hands. Never stops. Been on MTX + folic acid for about 6 months, and the pins & needles started a couple of weeks ago. Had 2 x Vitamin B12 injections which haven't helped at all. I've read that a high percentage of RA sufferers have carpal tunnel syndrome because the inflammation can bulge/press on the medial nerves into the hands.
I'm going to discuss my symptoms with my rheumatologist, but appointment only in October. In the meantime I was wondering if anyone else developed carpal tunnel after getting RA, and, if so, if the routine carpal tunnel operation solved the problem?
