Does anyone have advice on a type of pain killer that works for RA but doesn't make you feel like your 'high' or dizzy or feel sick? I want something I can take in the mean time of waiting for Humira but something I can take and still be able to to things and not mess with my Crohn's. I have tired a few, all of which make me dizzy, sit on the couch for hours throwing up. (of course in my throw up bucket,I'm sure some of you have one if you have crohn's in the stomach, lol ;) I have my sister in-law stagette party, I know I am unable to drink but I would like to be able to move to even get there! I hope someone can give me advice

Have you ever tried Ultram? That is one of the pain meds thats not supposed to make you really loopy. Good luck!
