I forgot to mention....I have also been on Cymbalta which does help me also. But, I have multiple physical (pain) conditions and I believe this med helps with nerve pain from bruised spinal cord issue. However, do the commercials advertise for arthritis? I went off of it just to see if it actually made a difference, and it did. It might for you as well. Good luck!!View Thread
I am on diclofenac which has helped symptoms caused by my arthritis but not the pain itself. Prior, and for too many years, I had used Aleve, Advil, Tylenol, etc etc to no avail... I've been on and subsequently off the opiate route. I don't believe there is any medication for relief of our pain!
I have a question for you... You have OA yet you see a rheumalogist..??!! I saw one once but was told I didn't need to see him since I have OA. Do I need to see a different one??
