Hi there. Have been taking mobic daily to reduce rash and joint pain. Dr. thinks I most likely psoriatic arthritis, as I do have scalp psoriasis, along with all this achiness. Hence- the mobic. However, I had to go off the mobic this week because I am having some tests done at the local hospital. My question is: when you go off of mobic, do you get very achy? I am in agony, in joints that were never achy before, like my left hand, and my knee. And of course I can't take anything because the test is tomorrow AM. It is so painful I am having trouble sleeping. Any advice or comments appreciated.
Since mobic is a NSAID and reduces inflammation and pain, it would make sense that you would feel worse without it. I do hope that the tests you are having are to help you get properly diagnosed. I would strongly suggest that you be seen by a rheumatologist as they are the best for diagnosing and treating this.
This evening you might want to try taking a hot bath and using heating pads to help you get through. Hope you get some answers and on to a proper treatment plan. It is important to treat the disease, not just the symptoms.
