Hi! As you had high BP even before RA it means that you do have BP and it needs to be treated.Consult your GP for the management of Hypertension. Alsothe drug which you are using does have an effect on BP so ask your doctor to change it also
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Pain killers specially COX-2 inhibitors like Nucoxia might cause slight elevation of B.P. due to water and salt retention caused by them in the body.Ask your doctor to change the pain killer to a milder one or to a different group and then see its effect on B.P.
