I'm having really bad pain in my hands-bones, pins and needles and heat radiating from my skin. Anyone experience this?

Lori hi, I sure hate that you are having to deal with this I as well have this problem and there would be times when the pain would be so bad I was about the point of wanting to cut my hands off.My hands woul get really red and they were like yours you could feel them and they would be hot and not matter what I tried I was unable to get the to stop hurting.I Crohns and my GI's Nurse told me that when they got to the point that they started hurting really bad and felt the pins and needles to run the hottest water that I could stand over my hands and that it would help ease the pain,I tried it and it did help for a while and when they would start hurting again I would run them under water.I do have Ra and OA as well but I also had Carpal Tunnel syndrom and I had surgery on both hands and now I have the arthritis pain but I no longer have to run my hands under water and the pins and needless also have stoped so if you have not been tested you may want to get tested to see if you have it if so you can get the right typ of treatment.

Thanks Curley,
Sometimes a person thinks they're the only one who has these symtoms. I'm one of those. I'm so very sorry that you are having problems.
By the way..since I'm a newbee here, I'm trying to find a link to join this particular group. Can't find a link for it. Would appreciate if you can help me on this one.
Thanks, Lori

Hi!  I get this too!  Although, my hands don't get red I know they are swollen by how my rings fit.  I do feel heat coming off of my elbow however, then my whole forearm starts throbbing.  When it gets real bad, I slather on ben-gay.  It sounds funny that putting heat on it would make it feel better, but it does.

I don't have a dx yet (just really strong suspicion, and a boss who is a retired rhuemmy), but  my appointment is 7 days and counting; I have been waiting 6 weeks for this appointment, grrrr.

The weather we have been having lately (rain) has just been killing me!

Had pins and needles all over my body last night with that heat radiating out from my skin. Does anyone know why pins and needles may be associated with arthritis and why? How would arthritis affect the nerves?
