Does anyone experience constant leg vibrations?

Does anyone experience constant leg vibrations?

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!

Summer make symptoms worse?

Summer make symptoms worse?

Maybe this is really just coincidence but my first symptoms started last year and were their worst right about this time last year. After several doses of prednisone i stayed about the same (from november to April) and now bam its creeping its way back. Cant help but wonder if this time of year has a part in it? Been doing a lot of yardwork and more active in general this time of year-except now i have the pain again in joints

Is it worth it to go on biologics?

Is it worth it to go on biologics?

Go to Doc tomorrow talk about new meds. She had mentioned before maybe trying biologics. I’m terrified of the side effects I read. I know not everyone gets them but I’m pretty sensitive to mess though. However none of the meds so far have really worked. I have so many things I want to do in life that I need to be functional and mobile. I dont need to be nauseous and dizzy, don’t need any more headaches, don’t want to have sore throats, I have bad sinus already. I can’t deal with… read more

Any advice? I need some relief?

Any advice? I need some relief?

Why aren't any of my meds working? I'm on 1200 mg gabepentin, 3000 mg glucosamine, 200 mg trazadone, 15 mg melatonin, 40 mg mobic, 3 mg risperdal, 40 mg celexa, calcium, d3, a once a week 50,000 unit of D2, plus a few other daily meds & more than my limit of Aleve, Excedrin & Advil. 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???

Do you believe that your RA was ignited by a severe stress event in your life?

Do you believe that your RA was ignited by a severe stress event in your life?

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. Things like a death of someone close to you, A job that was difficult to the point you wanted to quit, the loss of a job or your only means of support., a fight with your family that cast you aside, the break up of a partner. Maybe a part of life.… read more
