experiencing any side effects. A former doctor has recommended that I try Nucynta, since it "raises fewer eyebrows." I'm wondering if this is a good path for me under the circumstances. I'm currently working with a new rheumatologist, who I've only seen 3 times, so I'm somewhat reluctant to approach him about switching. Any advice would be helpful. My pain is primarily in my back, but migrates to hips and shoulders and is, as of the moment, not fitting into any typical category.
