Hi there. My doc gave me Mobic to try. I have complained about pain for so long and have only been using Ultram or Ultracet. but since I figured out that Ultram was keeping me awake at night I don't take after about 3 in the afternoon. I have a lot of pain. I tried the Mobic and I thought that maybe in helped a little with the stiffness, but not the pain and in fact I thought the pain might be a little bit worse??????? Anyone out there know about this medicine and how it works and am I wasting my time. I wish I had some type of medicine that really took the pain away. I can't remember the last time I had no pain. It wears you down big time.
