I suggest you go and see another GP. What makes you think you might have R.A.? Lots of people have neck/back problems and very few of them ever turn out to have R.A or for that matter O.A.

hi you need to go see another gp like louise said, have you had bloods done, did your gp mention RA? a trapped nerve would cause warm tingly sensations but RA doesnt usually start in the back, hands,feet,knees,wrists,shoulders and hips and its usually symetrical (sp) im not a dr but it sounds like sciatica in the your lower back,good luck and let us know how you get on

i am new to this forum. iam a woman at 56 yrs old and have had rheumatoid arthritis for 41 years. RA is a auto immune disease. your immune system is really messed up when you have RA. what i see with you it sounds like a sciatic nerve problem. if i were you i would ask the doctor about some type of physio therapy or accupuncture. if you had RA THER WOULD BE OTHER different kind of symptoms, alot of swelling and severe stiffness and pain. hope ive been some help.
