I think dropping things goes along with RA. The worse you feel or the more tired you are, the worse the dropping usually is. I try to stay out of the kitchen on those days and avoid glass objects when It's really bad.
it is a part of the disease. Treatment and staying ahead of it are key.
Gabapentin, I don't think is great, it increases weight gain and if on for a long time changes to the brain.
I know the med Gabapentin was one that made my balance bad It did nothing for pain so I got off it. When my legs hands feet are swollen I get stinging in legs or sharp shooting pains
that weakness happens in my hands too; twisting the drain in the kitchen sink usually I have to get my daughter or boyfriend to undo because neither of my hands have enough strength; its a very useless feeling and I feel so bad about myself when it happens.
