I have been under a tremendous amount of stress lately. Seems like everything always happens at once! I have had increased pain, fatigue, insomnia, and generally just been feeling worse. Could this be due to the stress? I am only on Naproxen for pain and methotrexate for the RA. The naproxen really helped a lot until about the last week, when all heck seems to have broken loose. I am new to this but I have read that stress is really bad for anything auto-immune related. How do you avoid it? Stress is just part of life lol.
