Find another doctor. If the doctor had to live with the pain, I am sure they would take more that what you have been prescribed.

I went to a new rheumatologist who agreed I have osteoarthritis not rheumatoid arthritis. He prescribed 3 tramadol a day. He also agreed that there is not enough evidence to prescribe plaquenil or methotrexate for arterial inflammation. They used to think NSAIDs would help arterial inflamamtion and doctors prescribed them for that purpose, but when they did the studies they found the opposite.
