    Hi @greeny

    Pain and pain relief is a very individual thing - what works for one doesn’t always for another. It would be best if you discuss your options with your GP or rheumatologist.

    Here’s a link from the Versus Arthritis website about different sorts of pain relief for arthritis and their risks and side effects:

    I have been prescribed Nefopam for Osteoarthritis in my fingers. It does give some relief and can be taken with paracetamol.
