Fighting the ra fight

I have been fighting RA for 20 years. I was in my early 30's when I was put on methotrexate. I am 56 and now on xeljanz, and piroxicam. I waitress, take care of a sick mum and my husband and I take care of our 4 year old grandson 4 days a week. My pain has been so bad lately and I can't get it under control. I've tried gluten free no luck. I use to do yoga and walk now I have a hard time getting through the day. Does anyone have any advice for calming a flare that's not a pill? And is anyone else tired of going to doctors that don't listen? I call it being patted on my pointy head. Looking forward to chatting with other in the same place I'm in. Julie
