A very long story which would take ages to tell, so will keep things brief as possible......
All of my immune suppresing meds have been stopped since February due to complications caused by another more recent chronic disease and I don't see much chance of me ever going back on them again. I won't go into detail about the debilitating pain I'm now in. Won't mince my words either..enough to say that I'm in a hell of a mess and more or less house bound. Current pain relief of slow release tramadol, paracetomol and naproxen does help some of the time, but has little effect with my acute flare-ups, which are now happening every couple of days. So am wondering what stronger pain relief that is effective with RA is avaliable? I'm thinking of asking rheumy about morphine patches as this is the only strong pain relief I'm aware of. Please bear in mind that I can't take any steroid based medication either.
Thoughts much appreciated
