Annette, the next step would be to rule out connective tissue diseases (of which RA is one) by seeing a rheumatologist as the neurologist will also have ruled out neurological disorders like MS. In the meantime you can try taking a long-acting anti-inflammatory like Brexecam® or Celebrex® and see what happens. If it works, you at least know that inflammation is a central part of the problem and this will help focus the search. Good luck.
