Pain That Feels Like Electrical Shock In Arms Down To Fingers.

I was diagnosed with RA in December 2010. I am on Meloxicam, Methotrexate & Prednisone. (plus a few other vitamin supplements)

Recently started having spasm/pains that kinda feel like an electrical shock that goes from my arm(s) down thru my fingers. Is this a common RA symptom? A medicinal side effect?

Answer

this isn't a typical RA symptom, but sounds more like perhaps a nerve is being pinched somewhere in your neck or shoulder area. I'd recommend that you speak to your doctor about this to get it checked out.
