Meloxicam and flexeril

Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam and flexeril


I have been having a lot of pain in my legs, back, hands and arms. Ibprofen and other things don't seem to help it. I do not know how to make if feel better. Some of it is in the muscles that are extremely tight and others seem like joint pain. Just wondering. My doctors won't prescribe anything else. I have tried Lyrica and a bunch of arthritis meds. Again I am undiagnosed so they are also trying to figure out what I have.
I take Tramadol, Zoloft, Flexeril, Restoril, high blood pressure meds, a statin for cholesterol, and meloxicam. I couldn't tolerate Lyrica or Neurontin, both made me very ill. My Rhuemy feels that the trauma from having had 3 major knee surgeries in exactly 7 months brought my fibro to fruitation. My grown children and my husband all understand that this disease is unseen but will take total control if I allowed it to do so.
Of course, if I had the money, I would have called the vet, who would have told me to bring my dog in and then run expensive tests and then told me what I already knew and then prescribed a vet formulation of flexeril that is identical to human.
for the last 6 years they have had me taking everything from tramadol, xanax, morphine, diladud, oxycontin, oxcycodone, codeine, oxcycodone ir, vicodin, norco, soma, flexeril, meloxicam, mobic, on top of that I used to be an alcoholic, and use illegal drugs cocaine mostly weed, and whatever else to stop the pain from the total disc replacement surgery in my back. Here is the ****** up part, I can't get off them even if I wanted to, I would be in chronic pain and I am only 37 years old.
Finally, I went to an orthopedic surgeon spine specialist. My doctor ordered an MRI, put me on Mobic (Meloxicam) and ordered PT 2 times a week. The MRI showed 3 herniated disks caused by annular tears in my L4-S1. The doctor also said I have DDD (Degenerative Disk Disease). Clearly, my nerves were/are being compressed. I go to PT for core strengthening and traction. Traction is amazing. Traction is disk decompression.

50 mg and yea motrin 800 doesn't work for me either and is rough on my stomach but mobic(that's the non generic name for meloxicam) is only 15mg and doesn't bother my stomach.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
My fibromyalgia is focused in my back, ALL of my back; upper, lower, middle, and both sides. F.Y.I. I also have osteoarthritis and osteopenia(?) and (in case it's relevant) I had whiplash (upper back/neck) in Dec. 1987. Now, my questions are: Do Fibromyalgia patients typically experience 'flare ups'? I've been on a combination of Gabapentin and EffexorXR for treatment and often the pain is manageable and under control.
I just saw miy primary doctor last week, and he did not send me for any tests or xrays, and said he thought I had Fibromyalgia. I was given percriptions for Meloxicam (Mobic) & Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril). Does this fit the diagnoises of Fibromyalgia, or should I ask for the xrays and other tests?
After 2 ½ years of problems ( mainly shortness of breath on exertion) and after many interventions and tests which were all negative, including two left and right cardiac caths, I was referred to Emory University Hospital interventional cardiology. I underwent another cath as a way of a diagnosis by exclusion. They were pretty confident of the diagnosis they were to confirm.
Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 53. This thread is full of helpful and kind people who want to help you get off this terrible drug. Please snuggle in and make yourself comfy. I know you can do it!
If i may make a few suggestions, first because you really do have legitimate pain, i would get rid of the soma and ask for a different muscle relaxer such as flexeril or baclofen, etc. Then i would possible ask him for a long term pain medication that you only take one or two a day. That may help more with the pain while keeping you from taking too much. You have to want to do this though and be of strong mind and stick to it.
we tried topamax but it gave me a rare side affect and my face went numb. These days its flexeril, percocet, lyrica, and neurontin (gabapentin) I'm still convinced the neurontin does nothing but whatever it doesn't do anything negative so I take it. I thought the lyrica wasn't working until after I had been on it for about a year and I ran out and forgot to get it filled. yeah. it helps.
Now I only take the occassional Flexeril at night and the D-Ribose that was mentioned by someone previously is a lifesaver. 1 tsp. in my coffee every morning. It's a tasteless white powder you can get at any health food store, not too cheap, worth every penny. It takes about 10-14 days give or take to kick in but WOW. The pain subsides and the energy level SOARS. It is awesome. I know several people who have tried it and are like new. They have quit taking their regular meds.
My usual medications are low dose Effexor for mild depression since a death close to me in 2003 and Meloxicam for knee arthritis. I have taken these meds since 2003 with no trouble so I am sure it isn't the meds I currently take. I take supplements too, Vitamind D3 5,000 units cholecalciferol (I was deplete), Magnesium and Omega 3-6-9. So Thursday rolled around and I had not eaten anything (other than coffee, water and diet Dr. Pepper) since Tuesday.
Started 2 days ago. When standing it comes and goes in 10-15 second intervals. Sitting in bed now and it's gone. I hear a lot of talk about nerves which makes sense - growth of cysts can put pressure on the nerves cant it? Help - please keep me posted. I will keep you all posted too.
I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night. In addition, I lay on a baseball and roll over the rhomboid muscle while stretching to break up the spasms for some relief, the ball hits an area that feels like a rope that is in a horizontal position across the rhomboid. Pain radiates from the rhomboid up the right side of my neck, and down my right arm which includes the right shoulder. Headaches are almost constant.
The pain I experience is usually in my left inner thigh but last week it was in both of my inner thighs. The pain is a slicing excruciating pain that is horrible. I have had three children so I know what pain is, but this is horrible pain. It feels like someone is stabbing me. It doesn't happen very often and I have experienced this pain for the past several years. I am 58 years old, I am 5'8" and weigh 165 lbs. I exercise frequently and am in good health.
I have had MRI's done of the Cervical spine(neck region) and Lumbar spine (lower back) I have a lg hernated disc in my neck and degenetive disc disease with an annular tear in my lower back. I am going to also request my doctors to do an MRI of Thoracic spine (middle back) because they haven't done an MRI of that section yet. I am not sure if the mid back problems is caused by these issues I know I have. I would suggest you dig into the problem more.
