Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are, say the NHS, aching, numbness, and tingling in the thumb, fingers, and part of the hand.
Rheumatoid arthritis can also cause inflammation in other areas of the body such as the lungs, heart, eyes, and blood vessels.
Inflammation of the lungs can result in symptoms such as:
• Chest pain
• A persistent cough
• Shortness of breath.
