One year ago, I was diagnosed with RA. I believe that there is more going on. I am currently taking Methotrexate 20 mg once a week, Folic acid 1 mg daily, Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg daily and Cyclobenzaprine 10 mg twice a day. Also, I just began taking Celecoxib 200 mg for pain. I saw the RA physician yesterday, and they want me to start taking Humira. Additionally, I was given a Cortisone injection yesterday. My symptoms are as follows: I am having circulation difficulties. All ten toes feel partly numb. I am losing muscle mass and becoming weak. I also feel an icy cold sensation in my ankles and front of my legs. This morning, I had that same sensation in my chest. Over the past six months, I have developed lumps of various sizes on all my muscles, which appear to run along meridians. When I push on them, it feels as if I am pushing on a bruise. I include my blood panel that was taken a week. I feel like something is going on in my lymphatic system. I need a second opinion.
