Common Questions and Answers about Mobic vs ibuprofen

mobic

Hi there, Meloxicam (Brand name Mobic) is in the exact same class of medicines as Advil (Ibuprofen)...as they are NSAIDS...(Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs)... It's just administered differently in that you would take just one 15mg pill per day as opposed to taking Ibuprofen throughout the day. **15mg is the maximum daily recommended dose so it's important to follow ALL prescribing instructions to the letter to prevent any potential serious side effects.
So I have to wait until I can be seen by a doctor for surgical removal vs lithotripsy. I refused all opiates in ER. Refused a script for Percocet, got one for a non narcotic NSAID instead. Still MISERABLE. I am staying clean if opiates, very determined as you can see!! But what do I take for real pain now?
She said to take Ibuprofen and ice the arm. Well I tried that and would not like to be on Ibuprofen daily. I am 50 years old, relatively healthy and have not been on medication. Since this happened, my blood pressure has jumped up and I am on blood pressure medicine daily. I am also in pain and am limited with my right arm movement. The pain started the night I received my yearly flu shot.
It is as if someone is inserting a knife into my shoulder blade, which then creates pain everywhere else. I am taking ibuprofen and using IcyHot but the pain only weakens for a while; it does not fully go away. Can someone please tell me what my next step should be - what type of doctor should I see? I am a healthy person and have never had medical / health problems. I am 38 years old and realize that it's time to make myself a priority and have this seen about.
I left my ortho docs office two weeks with the same response. He said it's just a flare-up. Continue the Mobic like I've been doing for 4 years and go home. No injection because he said it could cause infection. I fell on my right leg 2 months ago and hyperflexed my knee way beyond the point of where it would go to. I have a chip of bone off in the area of the most pain, but I was still dismissed. I'm looking for another MD. This is the 2nd replacement in the same knee.
I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp? No heavy weight lifting for me. I guess that would be anything that causes me to strain.
As of dec my back gets this red spots that do look like bug bites, and as they go away the area seems a little darker than my skin. I will look up!
