I am currently being tested for RA. I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, MS, COPD and Asthma. I have been dealing with a rash on my hand that feels as though it was burned with hot water. Strangely though, it only occurs at night. It starts around 7:00 pm and continues until I get up the next morning.
I really appreciate any info you may have to offer!
Random uticaria (fancy word for 'itching') is common in autoimmune diseases like RA. Inflammation can press on sensitive nerves and cause tingling, itching, the feeling like a limb has gone to sleep. Make sure you aren't curling/clenching your hands in your sleep. Maybe try a wrist brace that will let you relax your wrist and hand in a neutral position and see if that helps?
