I woke up one day with RA

Hi, I am new to this forum and have recently been diagnosed with RA. I've have spent the last three months in the most excruciating pain. I went from a normal person who could walk to a person who could barley walk. The muscles and bones in my legs hurt so bad all I could do is lay in bed and cry, it was terrible. I do feel a little better now, but I'm on prednisone and unfortunately I already have to be weaned off of it because I can't sleep. I am not looking forward to going back to all the pain, but I am trying to take it one day at a time. I'm working with a homeopathic doctor and trying to deal with some of this through diet and vitamins, we will see how that works. Anyways, I would love any advice or if you have taken something other then prednisone that has worked I would like to know what you've taken.
