Is it ok to take Mobic and Aleve?

Does anyone know if it's ok to take Mobic and Aleve? I've read that they should not be taken together but nothing else works.

How long does it take to see some improvement in pain with Mobic?

A myRAteam Member said:

I've been taking it for well over a year and don't see any improvement. In fact, the RA has gotten worse, attacking more areas.

This works really good for about 8 hours. Do the Dr's ever give more than one pill a day? I take 1 tramadol to get me through the day. But it screws up my brain. I can't remember stuff or drive!

I take 2 Tremadol a day and thankfully it doesnt give me any problems. Got see your doctor and get another tablet that doesn't upset you.

Does anyone have Inflammation in Spine (low back)?

Does anyone have Inflammation in Spine (low back)?

Hi!
I've been having some leg pain, not the neuropathy, that looks as if it is coming from my back. The MRI showed the nerve root involvement but also noted moderate "Modic Type I" Changes. I've been reading that is an indication there is active inflammation within the vertebra, does anyone else have this? Has anyone ever heard of it?

A myRAteam Member said:

Thank you ! It really does. It is so complicated working through the maze of doctors and options.

Pain Control medicine.

Pain Control medicine.

My RA is a lot better but I still have pain probably related to damage already done or aging. I take naproxen but it doesn't always work. What do others suggest? Medical Marijuana is not legal in my state. If it was I think I would try it.

Gastritis

Gastritis

Anyone have experience with RA and gastritis? Currently in ER with the gastritis diagnosis. The physicians assistant is trying to tell me there is no relationship that this is a random not related event. I have only been dx with RA for a few months and still working meds out. I'm definately not controlled.

Anyone with thoughts?
