Pain and sensitivity in leg hip joint, deep ache at elbow joint to forearm. On Nabumetone. Diagnosed with RA. Advice

I was diagnosed with Rhumatoid Arthritus in my early thirties. I am now 55 and I have been experiencing approximately the last 6 months a definite increase in sensitivity, extreme and stinging pain in top of my leg hip joint. When I stand after sitting for any length of time it feels like I have open wound being ground into salt as I walk. It isn't always that way but more often than not. Also my forearms deep ache at the elbow joint and all the way down my forearm. The pain is very different & extreme, I take 500 ml of Nabumetone twice daily.

Rheumatologist 's  Response
you are basically suppressing your symptoms with pain medicines.
if you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis it would be better to start on proper treatment for RA called DMARDs.
for this you need to consult a rheumatologist.
