An unfortunate symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is a loss of sensation in the feet, which is commonly caused by inflammation and swelling placing pressure on the blood vessels and/or nerves. If the pressure is on blood vessels, the feet may additionally become cold.
Do you experience numbness or coldness in your feet? How does it impact your daily life? Any recommended ways to manage?

Actually they took me off of one of my medications because of these symptoms, the doctors also decided I probably am experiencing neuropathy as a side affect of the medication.
been off for about 3 months, and very little improvement, but hey I will take little over none
for coldness I heat up gloves or socks in the microwave as often as I need the warmth.
funny though I do not seem to be affected when sleeping.
