I am already taking remicade infusions every 6 weeks , but still have some pain.
NSAIDS such as ibuprofen or aleve help somewhat. There are others your doctor can prescribe for you.
Pain Management is highly indiviualized. Naproxen helped my little aches & pains for years (I have had RA for over 21 years). Over the years, my RAMD has had to add some meds, but start small like the OTC meds after talking with your MD. Ask him too about meds like Cymbalta that has been approved for musculoskeletal pain & can help with the fatigue of RA. Again, only you & your MD can decide what is best for you. Some MDs do not like for their patients to "suggest" specific medications. But my RAMD (rheumatologist) welcomes any & all suggestions as he encourages me to do research & empower myself with knowledge of the disease process & treatment (including pain) options. I hope that you find some relief & be graciously blessed!
I see a pain management Dr also, I have R.a and it helps a lot , I am never completely pain free but I can function which is important to me and my 7 yr old. I am currently on OxyContin and percocet.
I see a pain management Dr , I have a high tolerance to medications so pain mangmt works so I can function withmy 7 yr old.
