    For leg cramps, I highly recommend CRAMPS DEFENSE, it is a magnesium supplement I take at night and it works.  I take 4 of them a night and no leg cramps.  As far as the other pain, need to check with your RA.

    Have you been diagnosed with RA, you don't mention that in your post.

    If you are getting ignored by Dr ask, no don't ask insist, for ESR and CRP blood test, that will show if you have inflammation going on in your system.

    I wonder what age you are, you mention dancing with a 80 yr old, but not your own age.

    Do you suffer or have you suffered from psoriasis or excema, there is a complication of psoriasis that very few have even heard of, even Dr's, it is an arthirits causes inflammation in the cartledge of you joints, therefore swelling, my rheumo told me first cousin to rheumatoid arthirits, and does the same damage if not controlled., I have had it for 15 years now, and have finally got it close to under control with strong meds which I have been able to wean as I am getting better.

    I presume that since you are posting here you have been diagnosed with RA. Are you taking a biologic?

    Several years ago my feet and ankles began to burn and become inflamed, and I thought I would be in a wheelchair in another couple of years. I had had a lot of problems with every other bilateral joint except my hips and feet, so I became rather upset.

    About ten months I started on Humira and within four weeks they felt almost completely normal.

    I  am a firm believer in starting biologics earlier rather than later, as I have permanent disfiguring damage to my hands  and elbows, plus a double knee replacement, which may have been prevented or delayed with an earlier diagnosis and effective treatment.
