Hi Pam and welcome to HW and the RA forum
My RA got worse before the meds kicked in.
Sometimes it takes a different combo of meds to get relief, so there is all the trying new meds, waiting etc.
Give your meds sometime to kick in and if you are no better, see Rheumy about other meds to try.
Good luck and keep us posted.
