Wondering if anyone else gets this, or if anyone knows what might cause this? Sometimes I get odd sensations in the tips of my fingers, and even sometimes part of my hand. It will feel like it's burning, or warm. But to the touch it really isn't. I've had my foot to it a few times as well. I'm always afraid it's going to swell up on me like it did in May, when I flared.
I asked my doctor once about it, when my pinky finger was having these sensations. He felt it was do to the inflammation in my body. But I don't know. Seems weird. I wonder if it could be nerve damage from the week I took Flagyl? That's around the time it started too (but also the same time I was flaring). Or maybe yet another strange side effect from Prednisone? I know, probably grasping at straws here.
