  • Hi, so I was diagnosed with RA 3 years ago...so at first I was in so much pain, 4mtx, the prednisone help but I gained to much weight, my body has restless syndrome! !! Its not just in my legs..I also have Anxiety I do take amitriptyline at night...but in the day I take benadryl that helps if I get itchy...good luck..I'm 60

  • May be neuropathy. I have this-- I describe mine as a crawly sometimes burning or numbing sensation. Almost went crazy before it was diagnosed. Was referred to a neurologist. I now take medication that controls it. I'm 69 and have had fibromyalgia for over 20 years, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis two years ago. I take prednisone when I have RA flares. Take meloxicam for fibro. Have taken several different antiflammatory drugs through the years. So much chronic pain I felt like I could't move. Try finding a neurologist is my suggestion. They will run specific tests and diagnose. Good luck!

  • Thanks. I'll take a look.😊
