Discussions that mention vioxx

Hey Greenoctopus18,

I had severe pain in my knees several years ago and went to the doctor and had an exam and x-rays done. IT was determined I had lost all cartilage in my knees. Basically I was going through premature arthritis. The doctor shot some cortozone behind my knee cap and yes it hurt like [email protected]*. I now take a RX of Vioxx and have no more pain. I don't wish this on anyone but if it is arthritis then it can be managed. By the way, this problem struck me when I was only 35 years old so it's not just an elderly problem.

Good Luck
