    Hi @artyone

    Welcome to the versus arthritis forum.

    You were diagnosed with RA some years ago, you’re still physically active albeit a little slower. Getting a good night’s sleep is difficult to achieve given the burning symptoms you experience. You’d like to hear from anyone who is able to offer any advice given that you are unable to take any meds.

    If you haven’t already visited our website, you may find the following article useful. It includes suggestions/ideas for living with the pain of arthritis including managing flare-ups. I hope there’s something useful for you:

    I hope you receive some useful feedback from forum members.

    Please do have a look around the rest of the community and see if there are any tips for you, maybe in the Living in Arthritis area. 

    Best Wishes
