Hi, I have been taking Naproxen for 3 months now, for the pain and swelling in my hands. It has helped with the swelling a little and at first with the pain, but now the they seem to be increasing again, putting them in hot water helps for a while, but they are very stiff first thing, but ease a little through the day. I also get some very severe shooting pains in the fingers, also cramp. My Rheumy is not convinced this is RA, have to see him again in January. They are waking me at night with the pain too.
Any advice greatly appreciated. I also have Fibro, osteoarthritis, diabetes and sarcoidosis among other things.
