Peripheral Neuropathy ?? Any Advice .....

I have suffered from all over chronic pain since 06 , in short i was diagnosed with osteoarthiritis and degenerative disc disease of L5-S1 . Was also diagnosed in 2012 with spondylosis and spina bifida occulta . I have thoracolumbar postural dysfunction . Probably due to all the things wrong with my back . In 09 i was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy , my dr then never looked any further into the peripheral neuropathy . Did however prescribe neurontin . Ive been seen by a rheumatologist since , and he diagnosed palindromic rheumatism ( RA) . Ive been treated for the RA since 2011 . My symptoms now are trembling especially in hands , ive trembled like this for quite some time though . I noticed the trembling in 2001. the trembling has gotten much worse . I have jerking of my body especially at night , so hard it will finally wake me . My husband said he was watching me nap one afternoon , and said he had stood there for at least 5-7 minutes and said my body was jerking and twitching in sequence said it would start with my eyes and go to my upper arm to my lower arm then my upper leg to my lower leg , then said it would start all back over again . I do have some swelling in my joints especially in my hands , feet and knees . My problem with my memory has gotten much much worse , i have a very hard time remembering anything if i even do . I cant remember at times day to day say what it was i did that day . Its getting embarrassing , but i worry alot about it cause it is getting progressively worse . I have pain in basically all my joints , i do have a stiff posture and my muscles stay tense , like they never relax . I have severe pain in hands and feet if they experience and cold temperatures at all . I have numbness and tingling in hands legs and feet especially at night . When i do sleep i wake each morning hurting much worse than i did maybe before i fell asleep . Please if anyone has any advice for me at all or if any of these signs look familiar to anyone , please let me know . Im at a loss on what this is anymore , my RA dr did set me up with a neurologist , my RA dr said i did have some kind of neuromuscular disorder . Just didnt specify what exactly . Im just asking anyone who may know anything about any of these signs or symptoms to please let me know , Thanks and god bless .

I've had some of those symptoms you list from vitamin B12 malabsorption, magnesium deficiency, and vitamin D deficiency. One deficiency can cause a lot of havoc.
