Do any of you with RA suffer with cramping at night? Every muscle in my legs and feet and also all around my rib cage. I'm only on Meloxicam and Prednisone (have been working my way down to a low level) now, but will start on Methotrexate next week. these cramps rob me of sleep - and last a long time. Now around my rib cage during the day. I had these before I was diagnosed and before starting the meds., so I know it's not just the meds. Anybody have any thoughts?View Thread
Ya, I'm taking magnesium - maybe 200mg at a time isn't enough. I've recently had cramping across my abdomen and under my jawbone. Dr. ordered more tests - waiting. Thanks for your comments. KayrorinView Thread
