Discussions that mention mobic

Arthritis board


Hi Connie,
I have much of the same problem. I have osteoarthritis in my knees, and my left knee is the worst. I have little cartledge left and i am bone on bone. My knee is always swollen....i have what is called a Bakers cyst that comes out the back of my knee. If the doctor drains it, it comes right back.
I am on Mobic right now for pain. It takes the edge off , but does not get rid of the pain.
Have you tried Synvisc injections? I have had 2 rounds of them and they have helped. They help most people quite a bit.
Supplements to help osteoarthritis are glucosamine, selenium, cat's claw, brewers yeast, and ginger....tumeric is also a good antiinflammatory.
