RA: Hopefully, you are getting for treatment for the RA which should reduce your pain. I personally try to avoid prescribing opioids, there are many side effects and negative effects using them. I would ask the patient with an allergy if it is a real allergy or intolerance which can be helped. There is also an anti-inflammatory diet which patient have gotten help with.
