    Yes, me too, especially my right foot and leg.
    The key word to look up is peripheral neuropathy or small fiber neuropathy. It seems to be common in AI diseases.
    I've had all of the tests except for the small fiber neuropathy, which is what I suspect I have.
    It gets a bit frightening for me when I drive, since I can't tell how much pressure I'm putting on the brake or accelerator.
    The frakin' neuro told me that there is nothing wrong with my muscles and that I should just pay attention to my speedometer!
    I'll never see him again.

    I get it as well. I used to get it quite often but it has slacked off since I started on the MTX.

    although I have not gotten a diagnosis yet, still waiting on blood work results, I feel my disease is progressing, I now have little brown bumps on the back of my hands, and there are bumps on my back that you cant see but can feel and they itch bad, when my wife squeezes these they do not hurt but white puss comes out of these, my knees sound like a bowl of rice crispy's, went to the mall yesterday, and it was a sunny day and when I got home I felt like I just worked a double shift and had to lay down, the rash on my face which are small raised red patchy bumps that lasts for months is becoming very itchy, my scalp is very itchy, I get panic attacks, I feel all jittery, sometimes I get weird sensations in my legs, joint pain is getting worse and wont go away, don't want to sound like I'm "complaining" just want to let other's know what's going on with me and if others have the same problems, I hope my rhem gets this right, I know whats wrong with me and I really need the meds!
