The pain has been so excruciating recently. I dont have any relief. Is there a pain med that will help me be able to function with daily activities. RA is in my hips and I have developed nodules in my hands that are very painful and sensitive. It is hard to grasp, close or shake hands. I am currently taking Norco 10/325 but only gives relief for a short period of time. I am afraid to ask my Dr. to increase the dosage because I dont want him to think that I am addicted. Can someone advise me?
