I am on meloxicam, for many years now. I don't even remember what it was originally prescribed for, but the Dr's have kept me on it as my anti-inflammatory through all of my spinal issues. I do recall they tried me on celebrex first and it didn't agree with me!
I use meloxicam. Great med. I've had 4 lumbar surgerys and have spinal stenosis myself. I would also highly recommend Torodal. It's a heavy duty anti inflammatory that comes in a shot, they can administer it at your regular doctor. You can get up to 3 per month, and it's been a life saver many many times during a painful flare up:)
Thanks I'm having some side effects from ESI My right foot 3 toes on right side numb My right side of face feels like I left dentist office And right hand 3 fingers numb Just amazing how long it takes to get help in a situation like this. The ESI did help my leg pain so I can at least walk I'm not in real PM clinic yet my GP is waiting for neurologist to see if they will do surgery
