You should definately consult a rheumatologist. Osteoarthritis is known to present with severe morning stiffness and relief as you get going during the day. Unfortunately, there is a wide variety of arthritic conditions and the spesific type will have to be determined by a specialist. I doubt that supplementation with multivitamins etc, will give you adequate relief. Lyrica is used for nerve pain and if you feel that part of your pain is nerve related, you can definately start taking it again. In the interim, you can use Coxflam to alleviate the pain. This is available over the counter at pharmacies.
