See details: Pain related to RA is minimized by strict control of inflammation. If the inflammatory process is poorly controlled you need to discuss treatment options with your rheumatologist.

Speak to your rheum: Pain can be from many causes if it is a flare in arthritis then your therapy may need to be changed. Depending on what you are taking and how often you are having pain and/or swelling will determine what approach to take.
