Got dx of RA yesterday by my family doc.. She is making me an appt with a rheumy but in the meantime, she prescribed Mobic. I CANNOT take NSAIDS due to hemoraghic gastritis (bleeding guts!) but for some stupid reason she still wanted me to try it! Well, I tried it and am now curled up with a ball of pain in my stomach! What can those of us who definitely CANNOT take NSAIDS take to reduce the inflammation and pain??? I know once I get to the rheumy, prednisone is in my futuer (and I definitely dont need it.. I'm 25 pounds overweight already!!!!)... Is there anything I can take for this pain other than just tylenol that will help with the inflammation?
