Happy almost New Year :)

Has anybody taken Relafen? I have Limited and have a lot of joint pain. The rheumatologist gave me Relafen, but after reading about the side affects I'm scared to take it. I have been taking Ibuprofen and I'm not sure why he gave me the other.

Also, does or has anybody had joint pain really bad? I have it in my elbow and it is so bad I can't lift anything with that arm. Is this part of it? Everything is so new and it seems like there's something new everyday. I almost hate to ask these questions because some of you are dealing with such big things that mine seem so petty.

Thank you for all your helpful answers. I wish you all peace and improvement in health in the new year.

Hi Cheri,

Yes I have taken it before and it worked well! If we always steered clear of meds after reading the possible adverse reactions we wouldn't take anything! I would give it a try. :)
Warm and gentle hugs,
