My Dr. did confirm that this is what I am dealing with and yes, having to lift my grandson does complicate it. I don't usually agree to take rx meds, but he said if I take the Mobic for two weeks, it will knock the pain out. It said about dizziness on the side effects so I take it before bed and the first morning I did feel like it was still affecting me, but the second morning after a good night's rest (I do get up at 5:30 am for my grandson), I felt ok today. My stomach does bother me a little, but I try to eat something with the pill. I will continue to try to stay with it. I was able to get the handiapped placard for flare-ups, which may occur as pain in either hip, groin or down the thigh where I can't move my leg.
