Discussions that mention mobic

Arthritis board

Does anyone know if tanning poses a problem to trigger arthritis pain? My doc has told me that I have a type of inflammatory arthritis and has me on plaquenil, mobic, and levoxyl (for hypothyroidism). I have been considering tanning in preperation for summer...just wondering if anyone knew of any issues related to that??

CTuit is correct about the Plaquenil. Mobic also makes you sun sensitive. I'd stay out of the sun and go with a good sunless tanning product. The sun does make my joint pain feel better initially, but causes it to increase later on that day.
