Dr. gave me Meloxicam for muscle spasms. It’s for arthritis pain.

He wanted to use Cymbalta and I said no. I don’t know about this guy. It’s a history too long to tell here, but my muscles fatigue and spasm after very minimal use. I don’t think Meloxicam or Cymbalta are either one the answer. He’s a Nurse Practitioner. My doctor will be mysteriously gone for “a few weeks.”

I had similar muscle problems, with excruciating spasms. Medication for inflammation could be helpful if nerve malfunction is causing the spasms. I had something similar, but don't recall its name. Cymbalta was also helpful for a while. Botox injections also helped, but had to be repeated every 90 days and they hurt like hell. The cymbalta was definitely helpful, but the side effects were awful. Hope this resolves for you.

Meloxicam is an NSAID, and can help with inflammation, if that is an issue for you. Stronger than aspirin, it can contribute to stomach erosion/bleeding, and can be hard(er) on the kidneys. My mom has been taking it, and was told today by her cardiologist to stop taking it; her eGFR has dropped from the 50s to 33 as of the last time they drew blood (back in December), making her Stage 3b in chronic kidney disease. They drew blood today to check it. Yay not. Keep in mind that she’s 84 and refused prior to today to think about taking care of herself diet-wise.

Do you live in a state that has approved medical marijuana? If so, it may be worthing a consultation.

I used to be a chart reviewer for NP’s. The number of holding-my-head-in-my-hands-and-weeping-quietly-to-myself-while-despairing-over-the-state-of-our-healthcare-system moments was too many to count. And now they are going into independent practice.

I hadn’t thought of that. I’ll look it I into it.

Well, he gave you something and got you out of his office.
