Hey we are on so much stuff, who knows what does what.
And with so much congestion around our bones
due to swelling
and the fact that our bones aren't exactly in right alightment
I am surprised we don't get more numbness with nerves getting trapped than we do.
You indicate the problem of tingling was there with and without the Enbrel
So I would say the Enbrel is safe.
You also said that the soreness in your feet was worse now that the tingling is there.
My guess is the soreness is due to swelling, and the swelling is blocking the nerves, so you get tingling.
But I'm no doctor, just had tons of experience with this disease (11 yrs. of severe RA )
As to how you would react to other Biologics, they are all different,
so no need to worry here.
I've experimented with the Enbrel, humira and now on MabtThera,
To me MabThera is the gold of the pack.
Ra Ra go MabThera!!!
Sweety, I know RA is a dreadful disease.
Alot of symptoms associated with other horrible diseases (like MS)
are what RA victims suffer
I would be going to a RA specialist and posing my concerns to him.
A good one can diagnose many complaints.
It was my RA doctor that diagnosed a gynological problem (Endometreosis ) years before my gynocologist did at my Rheumys suggestion!!!
I would be seeing a good Rheumatologit and discussing all you concerns with him.
I do recall my Rhemy pin pricking my feet and lower legs to see if I had sensation. I think he was testing for diabeties or enough circulation.
I told him that my toes were numb but he did nothing , and nothing bad has happened to my toes in the last 6 years. i think it is just a nerve issue that causes no problem, nothing to worry about
Good luck with your foot Yo
I really don't think it is MS, just more of the RA
Let me know how you get on
