I'm starting to think something in wrong with me. Pain level has been at a constant high level for weeks now. I've been on humira for 6 weeks, Arava for about 3 months. Pain has only gotten worse. I had injections in hip joint and bursa 2 weeks ago with very little relief, getting another in 2 more weeks. Started with norco and tramadol for pain. Didn't help much and pain kept getting worse, so got referred to pain dr. He rx OxyContin. All that did was make me sleepy. Didn't help much with pain. After 2 weeks on that, he rx a fentanyl patch. That took the pain from a jack hammer to a throb. Definitely didn't bring it to a tolerable level. No matter what I take, nothing seems to help much. I feel like I'm at my wits ends. I don't understand why none of these heavy duty pain killers seems to help much. I keep losing weight which dr attributes to inflammation. Meds don't seem to be helping with RA. I feel like crap all the time and unable to think clearly. I'm sooooo frustrated.
