I have been suffering from what my doctor has assumed is Rheumatoid Arthritis in a few finger joints for about six years. I am a 50 year old woman.

Yesterday morning my face started to feel hot (not a hot-flash; know what those are!) and then it was burning and itching. It looked and felt like a sunburn. Then it spread to my arms and back to my feet. Red and splotchy but no raised bumps. It started to subside within about 30 minutes and about an hour later realized that the joints with arthritis were really painful and in fact, now all my hand joints are painful. My neck hurts, I have a headache, my hip joints, well, everywhere hurts.

Are these conditions related? Any one else experience anything like this?

Thank you.

  • Yes, Same problem, first my knee outer right knee. My skin burns so bad you can not touch the skin. My right albow is the same but lesser skin pain. A week later now my left hand has a tingling sensation and is now very weak. I am 44yrs old and a male. Not sure what it is and plan to go to the doctor within the next week.
