good idea Kimber. it sounds like what you are experiencing are flare ups of some sorts. with me, i've active severe RA and CD and a cast of complications. dealing with this the past 10 years. i'm in constant chronic pain in all major joints everyday, and then i go through episodes of acute flares where the throbbing and pain is unbearable. it lasts a few days or like now....i've been in a bad flare since the night of dec.25th; woke up in the middle of the night and holy cow! awful.
so yeah it's hard. for your well being, see that other doc.
all the nsaids and cox2's always made me bleed (rectal bleeding) or vomit & cause pain. it's a tough process..especially when you feel like you're not being heard and looke at properly. a good doc is there for you, just have to find em'.
the best to you,
