Hi everyone.  I haven't posted in a long time.  I have been a member of this forum for quite a while though.  I am having a new issue and I don't think it is related to Crohn's Disease or Rheumatoid Arthritis. I don't know where else to look.  I have researched some on the internet but am not finding too much info.   I am often experienceing constant goose bumps.  This mostly happens at night.  They will just come and go every couple minutes and are mostly throughout my arms and legs.  It seems like it may be something neurological.  I also have RA or joint inflammation due to CD.  I have never experienced this before.  I have been in a flare lately with the CD and RA.  It seems different though b/c my pain is mostly only on my left side with a lot of numbness.  Any ideas?  I'm posting this on the RA and CD forums.  Thanks.

Hi Sniper...well some of those things have happened BUT this is a little different than your average goose bumps...it's almost like my legs are twitching and it's not when I am cold. The reason I worry is that my mom does have MS (another auto-immune disease) and so does my Aunt. We'll see..

how is your iron? I seem to get the goosebumps a lot when my iron is really low. Also, if i have a low grade fever or am getting dehydrated I might et them. We get so used to living with these things, we don't know we're experiencing them. My husband will often say "are you cold?" You have goose bumps. Then, I take my temp and it's a low grade fever.

A friend of mine had goose bumps the whole time she was a teen and it was a skin condition like excema. I don't remember the name.

thanks...I'm thinking it has something to do with my thyroid. I don't know...I've been resting more the last couple of days and it seems a little better.
