RE: Toe numbness from RA?

Hector,

Since RA can cause swelling, it is always possible that it could be causing your toes to feel numb by pinching the nerves. It is something worth checking out with your doctor, however, because the numbness could be caused by poor circulation, blood clots, nerve damage, etc. You probably do not want to make an assumption based on some opinions in forums.

Hector,

​I would agree with lillypowder65 because anything affecting blood flow can turn out badly, very quickly. Any clinic should be able to tell you if it is dangerous fairly quickly. If it is not dangerous, using  antiinflammatories should reduce or eliminate the symptoms.

Thanks, I took my Naproxen and the tingling went away. I hadn't been taking it for a while because it wasn't helping much. I googled how to check for poor circulation and my toe nails go from white to pink quickly after I squeeze them so I think I am okay. The toes aren't turning dark or anything. Does anyone know if pinched nerves get worse over time?

It is really hard to say whether the pinching will get worse. If it is caused by bone deformation and bones get more deformed over time , then it is possible that it would get worse. In that case, surgery to shave the affected bones might be required. But, like I said, there can be many causes for the numbness so do get checked out when you can so that nothing bad happens.

I would look into Vitamins that help to improve circulation. There are some.

RE: Toe numbness from RA?

I am not sure how it relates to the RA, but I also have issues with my toes and my feet. I have swelling from my CHF, but now I also have a strange kind of feeling that is hard to explain. It feels like my skin has tightened up, and it has to stretch for me to wiggle my toes. It doesn't really hurt, except sometimes at night it will also burn. I think it might be from the poor circulation due to my bad heart, but I also get gout in my feet, so it could be related to that instead.
