I was diagnosed with RA in my hands in February of this year and now take medication for this.
At my last appointment with my consultant I mentioned that I had a tingling/pins and needles sensation in my left hand, he said that as well as RA in the hands I now have carpal tunnel and prescribed amilytriptilne to be taken at night.
He didn't really expand on the diagnosis and I'm afraid I'm hopeless at apppointments - I don't seem to fully take in what the consultant says!!
Can you advise me - is RA connected to carpal tunnel. Do you have any info on Carpal Tunnel or can you recommend any websites to visit?
