Have been diagnosed with RA and treated with various medications: improved with prednisone and plaquinil. Was cut off and given methotrexate and relapsed. Now on methotrexate and 5 mg prednisone. Developed tingling and numbness in two fingers of right hand and given celebrex, continuing with methotrexate and prednisone. Specialist wants me to have test for Carpel Tunnel. My feeling is that the medication is causing the new symptoms in the fingers. I do not want to take test or have the operation. Would like feedback on similar symptoms.
