Viral&reactive arthritis

Diagnosed with above a month back but suffering from knee joint pains and ankle pain from past 8 months. Consulted rheumatologist but opinion is that it will take lot of time to cure, I'm depressed as sometimes pain is unbearable and days when I feel there is nothing. What is best medication for this. Currently m taking saaz 1 gm, omnacorthil 20 mg, hcqs 100.
