My reaction to naproxen would typically only last a few hours.

I would suggest you ask your rheumy about trying a different NSAID. Mobic (Meloxicam) and Celebrex (Celecoxib) are supposed to be easier to take. There are lots of others you can try. And if you aren't already, ask about taking Prilosec or Nexium along with the NSAID to help protect your stomach and gut.
