How do you handle different kinds of RA pain?

Nan wrote about two distinct ways RA shows up in her life (https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/?p=40444). This made me curious, for others here, what ways do RA pain show up in different ways for you? Do you manage the pain symptoms in different ways depending on how it comes to you?

  1. I have experienced the exact same thing and have the same frustrations. I'm on my 5th try for medications and so far the only thing that really seems to stop the flares is prednisone. Now, about to finish the loading dose of the 5th med and have had a week of obvious flare I'm wondering if this one is doomed too.
