I have been taking these pain killers for twelve years to help with my RA.
Now my consultant has moved me onto B cell therapy which requires an IV infusion of a recent drug called Mabthera which is really helping.
I suggest to talk to your gp about the pain relief but badger them to send you to an RA consultant and start treatment ASAP, it will stop deformation of joints, I should have done it years ago.
Also I was given methotrexate at the start of my treatment, it made me ill and also started my menopause at age 44 so beware of this drug it can have side effects
Thank you for your advice But I cant take the painkillers you mention because of meds im on and allergic to asprin.
Im seen a rheumatologist who put me on methotrexate but the head nurse said stay of pain killers because they lead to problems later on maybe thats why im so bad now because I've been taken defien in tablet or suppositories form over 30 years for different problems and was on alot of steroids over the years for skin trouble whice turned out to be lupus so I m wary of painkillers but need something.
I never heard of that therapy your on but please God it will stay doing you good .God bless you.

All the best & my prayers go with you
