Catz i do get that numbeness you describe, havent been to a rheumy in a while, had the tests at the neurologists, but it has worsened much since then. I like to burn myslef in the bathtub, I like hot water, but i cant tell if its too hot, until I get out and am beet red, I dont feel it, 4 years ago it was my left hand giving me most of my troubles, now its my right, which is not good, Im predominately right handed, can write with left too, but still, Im more skilled with right, and lately its been going numb alot, arms have been going numb. ANd I get alot of weakness, which really scares, me becasue I start to drop everything. I guess I have no advice for you, but your not alone. I need to new doctors, my last PCP quit, rheumy
sucked, pain doc moved. Nuerologist sucked, but I did find some other good drs along the way with other stuff.
I say nuerologist is who you neeed to see, and soon.
Good luck and let us know you are doing, will be praying for you..... .....
