Hi @denia,
It can be frustrating when your healthcare provider may not seem empathetic to your symptoms. Seeking a second opinion is always a wise choice, and if you would like to make an appointment at Mayo Clinic, you can use the following link: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.
Did your doctor explain what all he needs to rule out before he can make a firm diagnosis of MP?

I don’ t have a “like” button through my connection but I agree with the second opinion and Mayo appointment. With all due respect, was the doctor basing his decision on CT evidence and blood test results?Vdouglas

I made an appt with a gastro that I used to see several years ago and found out that she is successfully treating a few patients with MP! She gave a 1 week decreasing dose pak for the prednisone then put me on Mobic for 30 days to see if that will relieve some of my symptoms. She thought the Mobic was easier on the body than the prednisone in the long run. She has several patients that are on this with reduced symptoms. Anyone have any experience with Mobic?

I have not been writing. Got sepsis from oral surgeon. Antibiotic reaction and will soon get cdiff from month on infusion therapy. Not good.

Thank you Denia! I had not heard of Mobic. But, I will discuss it with my GI at my appointment next week.

Hello @denia,

There are a few members on Connect who have used Mobic (meloxicam), although for different conditions. I’d like to introduce you to @nanke99, @rayrachel, @joshmeyers, @mohavegal, @alicea; I hope they can provide more insight.

@denia, have you experienced any side effects from Mobic, such as an upset tummy or indigestion?
