My brother was given this today for pain. I have never taken it and was wondering if any of you have. I have taken so many pain pills and NOTHING helps. They want to do steroid injections again in my back. I have nerve damage and am taking Lyrica (3 times a day...150 mg). I am allergic to Morphine and all by products. I cannot take Vicodene but I can take Ultracet. I take Soma (the generic) and Hydrocodone. Nothing seems to help. On a whim I bought Equate brand Arthritis Medication and it helped so much that I was able to do major spring cleaning but now I am without energy once again since the weather change. I live by myself and have to be able to take care of my pets much less myself. I know this is long but I desperately need help as I don't want any more steroids or surgeries. I have had three on my back and two were major. The fussion took, praise God!! but they had to go inside a year later and take out the hardware. Before that I developed an infection in my back and it opened up. For the life of me I cannot remember the name but it is what the spinach caused. I suffered with this for over a year and had to give myself treatments of antibiotics. My doctor at that time told me I have a bone disease and the orthopedic doctor said my bones have shrunk since the last surgery. I try not to think of what could have happened but believe that God has had His protective arms around me all this time. My injury was work related...the company left me the industrial two wheel dolly and took the cheaper one to a convention....they didn't want the expensive one stolen. I loaded two 50 lb boxes of copier paper on the dolly and when I pulled back the damage was done. This happened five years ago and I was terminated. I have gone thru 10 physical therapy programs to which I have to laugh at. I am now going to a chronic pain doctor. As a note to those of you who are referred to one, don't make a mistake like I did with the first one. They kept me so doped up for a year and I missed out on a lot. Anyways I will stop here and ask for others to share any use of mobic/meloxicam for pain. Thanks and may you have a pain free day!!! It is heaven on earth when we do have that in our life. I am just glad that I am a widow because at times I cannot stand myself!!

My family is having dinner tonight, a lovely Saturday for them. I was invited, but there isn't enough gas in the car to go over. I spent 20 minutes today listening to my Mom's epic struggle to find the right light bulb for her bathroom and how difficult that was, then the fight she and my Dad got into over the light bulb. She finally gets around to asking how I am, and when I tell her how much...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
