Mobic (meloxicam): I have Cervical Arterial Disease and the pain radiates in my neck, shoulder, arms and hands. Sometimes makes me have bad headaches as well, on the left side of my head. Mobic is a life-saver for me. I had this medication for awhile, but refused to take it because reading the side effects scared me, but after over-the-counter medicatuons quit helping me with the pain, I went ahead and started it, and this is the best I've felt in months. I haven't had any side effects yet, but I've only been on it, for about a week. I'll continue to take it for now, because at least I'm not miserable. Living with chronic pain is no joke.

Review by Rhonda 123:

In December of 2010, My husband and I had a bad car wreck. I was broken up several times inside. About a year ago I started getting severe pain in my legs and joints. My back has always bothered me, but everyday my pain was worse. I got to the point I could not hardly stand without leaning on something for help or someone helping me. I am only 43 years old and I felt something was so wrong with me that it could kill me, because the pain was so bad. I felt a difference the first morning but the pain in my legs was getting worse. The next few nights the pain in my legs continued and also kept me up at night. I kept taking the med..and I am now 90% pain free!

I hurt my shoulder in a fall two years ago, and have not been able to recover full use of my arm, even with treatment and physical therapy. Pain woke me up at night and my arm would go numb at times. My Dr. gave me Motrin 800mg to take 2x a day, but it only helped about 50%, and I started to get side effects from the Motrin. One month ago, I went to a new Dr. and they gave me Meloxicam to try and within 2 days, I felt so much better, I couldn't believe it. Not only did it help my shoulder pain, it took away my other aches and pains. Now I don't even think about it. I just take my one pill a day and I feel normal and can do whatever I want! Exercise included. Amazing. No negative side effects so far. I LOVE it!

I love meloxicam! For years I have suffered from ovarian cysts that tend to rupture and be very painful. Not to mention that I have unusually painful menstral cramps. I went to a pain management doctor FINALLY after years of suffering and he prescribed me tramadol and meloxicam and the combination has changed my life completely! I highly recommend it for anyone who has extreme pain and bad inflammation.

Mobic (meloxicam): Mobic - the miracle pill. I have had chronic pain in my right knee for the last 6 months or so, it was getting worse by the day. I have now been taking Mobic 15mg for two days and I have no pain at all. I have read that there can be some nasty side effects, but at the moment I really don't care. I can walk pain free again.

A little over a year ago, I started having extreme tightness and stiffness down the backs of my legs. Because I was an active runner, I assumed it was a running injury. Naproxen and muscle relaxants did not help. Saw a sports doctor who thought it was an SacroIliac joint problem. Prescribed physio. Did it for six months. Pain and stiffness spread. Had X-rays and MRI. Showed some osteoarthritis in spine and mild to moderate bulging discs. Doctor thought it could be fibromyalgia. Referred to rheumatologist. Bloodwork showed low normal B12 (136). Was prescribed weekly B12 shots and meloxicam. Started working quickly. By second day, the stiffness was gone. Pain was greatly reduced. Comes back if I don't take it for two days. No side effects.

Mobic (meloxicam): I'm 35 and began suddenly having severe joint pain & stiffness & fatigue for the last 6 months only worsening with each day, to the point of it affecting my daily life. So this week I finally went to the doctors & was given Mobic 7.5mg script and could not believe it but within a 30 mins of taking my first pill I felt like a different person. No joint pain & no side effects other then the freedom to move without My joints hurting. I would recommend this to anyone suffering from joint pain or stiffness and to think this was all caused from a thyroid disease I was unaware of.

I developed severe pain, numbness and tingling in my left leg and was diagnosed with degenerative disk disease with a bulging disk in the L-2 region. I was prescribed 15 mg of meloxicam and ten mg of oxycodone for the pain. I take it first thing in the morning after eating two pieces of toast. After an hour I am pain free. The numbness and tingling remain but with much less intensity. The pain relief last pretty much all day. I am looking forward to the day when I can feel comfortable and go on with an active life without the meds.

Mobic (meloxicam): I have been taking Mobic for over a year with no side effects other than an elevated blood pressure. I had severe knee and ankle pain which completely went away after taking Mobic. I attempted to stop the medication however pain returned after a few days.

I have been having knee and ankle pain for about 3 months until now. The Army likes to prescribe Moltrin 800's for just about any sport injury. It worked somewhat but I was still experiencing pain in the first 1/4 mile of running until the pain went to just being numb. After 2 miles the numbness would go away and the pain would return but 2 fold. For the rest of the day I was pretty much useless. So last night I went through my medicine cabinet and found some Meloxicam and I remembered how it relieved my lower back pain greatly. Could barely walk at that time last night. Took one 15mg tablet 30 minutes before bed and I woke up like I never had the pain in my knees and ankles ever. I was amazed! I am going to inform my Health provider.

I have been on meloxicam 7.5mg once daily for 7 months now, wow what a difference. I take it with Tizanidine for my back, and I feel 80% better. I tried to wean off of it once and what a mistake, I had severe pain, couldn't even walk. Back on it now and wont go off again!

Mobic (meloxicam): I've been on Mobic for 2 days along with Flexerill and I am still experiencing excruciating pain. I feel like electric shocks going down my right sciatica.

I was prescribed Mobic for arthritis in my right hip. I lost range of motion and had difficulty putting on my right sock and shoe. After taking this medicine for 3 days I have noticed the hip pain has diminished greatly, about 80% back to pain free. But this medicine has also helped with my other joint pain and stiffness. I now feel closer to my age of 48 instead of feeling 78. Bending over to pick something up off the floor is easy now. I feel great, no side-effects yet.

I had pain I my back and my left leg, pain ran down my left leg and there were days I could walk because the pain was so great. Meloxicam was prescribed by a back & spine specialist. I was willing to try anything that would take the pain away. So I took my medicine for the first time and I felt so much better after a few hours. I was so pleased. I had no side affect, I take it every other day and it been working for me.

Mobic (meloxicam): Effective for my use for autoimmune/inflammatory/arthritis issues however blood pressure rise is trade-off! Feldene also very effective but for obvious reasons not agreeable.

I have had on and off Plantar Fasciitis for the past few years and my Podiatrist prescribed a 2 month supply of Meloxicam to reduce the swelling and inflammation in my heel. Almost instantly the pain and swelling went away and it is like night and day. I also got a Cortisone shot and the combination of the two have allowed me to resume my normal exercise routine and activity.

70 yr old unable to walk, sleep, sit, move without pain. Shoulder hurt so bad in tears. Went to orthopedist and X-rays revealed tear in rotator cuff. He prescribed meloxicam. Take 7.5mg daily and cannot tell you how it has improved my ability to perform routine daily activities. It truly gave me my life back. Although the prescribed dose is one a day, I try to make my prescription last longer by taking one every other day as it eliminated ALL my pain and my mobility is like a normal person. No major side effects thus far. Never want to give this up. Thank God for meloxicam.

Mobic (meloxicam): I have been taking Mobic for 4 years now. Having a herniated bulging disc it helped me so much. I had an operation (laminectomy) to cut away part of the disc. 2 years later after the op I have the same problem again along with nerve pain. Without Mobic I couldn't walk. I also take Oxycontin to relieve all pain. I hear all stories how Mobic damages your liver etc. I've tried twice to come off it, but straight away the pain is severe along with headaches.

Mobic (meloxicam): I have been having lower back pain for almost two years. I've been to physical therapy twice, currently I'm having osteopathic manipulative treatment, but with only three visits so far, have not gotten much relief. I also have neuropathic pain from shingles in my lower spine. I have had pain in my hands and fingers for a long time. I started getting nodules on my finger joints and can not wear my wedding rings any longer. I finally told my doctor to refer me to a specialist. In the meantime, he prescribed Mobic. In three days of taking this, I can actually close my fist without pain, my back pain has gone down, my knees don't feel like they are on fire. I feel like I can go out and start my walking routine again.

Mobic (meloxicam): I am using Mobic for a rotator cuff strain and myofacial pain in my shoulder stabilizers. It works great for that. I made the mistake of using it without food and it has made me very sick. Dizziness and nausea. I also found I have to take it at night because it makes me very drowsy.

Mobic (meloxicam): I was having severe leg pain which I am not sure what it was caused by but I do have Fibromyalgia. I took the Mobic and within about 2 hours, the pain was drastically reduced.

I started taking this about 3-4 weeks ago for Hip Bursitis. I'm 42 and very active with running, golfing, lifting, yoga, you name it. Pain started about 1.5 years ago and I tried physical therapy, stretching multiple times a day, heat/ice, which only offered temporary relief. I took this and within 2 days the pain was gone. I do notice the hip, it will stiffen up a little when golfing but that's about it. Great stuff! After reading all the I reviews, I'm really hoping I don't have to take this forever... just as needed.
