Can any one advise pain killers for rheumatoid arthritis. Most ones I’ve tried don’t touch the pain

I’ve tried ibuprofen, paracetamol, naproxen, gabapentin, co codamol to many to mention

What other drugs are you on for the RA? What does your rheumatologist say?

When all the normal pain killers aren't working, it is time to dive into the Pain Tool Kit:

I take etoricoxib, an anti- inflammatory, and paracetamol plus dihydrocodeine in combination. Most effective that I've found. Good luck!
