have to take tremadol for pain relief
You have to give yourself at least a couple of weeks. It takes a while for the drug to really have a full affect you. Three days is not near enough time.
I also take tramadol from time to time.
But what really works for me is sulfasalazine. I stopped taking prednisone after it put so much weight on me.
So stick with it. Give it lots more time.
sorry to seem negative but I was diagnosed with ra Feb 2-started with 10mg prednisone because of extreme swelling in my knuckles and fingers and an awfull rash-no relief so I ended up on 40mg of prednisone still no relief weeks later so we started methotrexate upped that dose twice and added paquinell here i am months later still extreme swelling and pain in both hands and wrists and now my ankles and feet-and now I am also on remicade have had 3 txs at 400mg and 1 at 600 and unfortunately still no relief-so as hard as it is you need to be patient and work with a doctor you trust--best of luck to you-I hope you have more luck than I have had so far.
