It’s driving me crazy! It’s all I can think about! I thought maybe it was neuropathy but after reading those symptoms it doesn’t seem the same. It feels like when the Dr taps your knee for reflex. Ugh. I just want to make it stop! I have RA, Fibro, and DDD. Don’t know how to make it stop!

I have no insurance so I'm very limited to changing any of these meds. But I'm open for suggestions. I'm getting very little to no relief from any of them right now. Any advice???
It seems that everyone I have had indepth conversations have mention the occurece of RA with life changing stress. Maybe my sample of people was too small but I do find it interesting.
