    I have a lot of joint pain in my shoulders and elbows. I also have a pinched nerve in my back that hurts like hell. I went to the Dr. and he gave me an anti-inflammatory called "mobic". I started taking it yesterday, he told me to take one a day. My question is how long does it take for the pill to start working. I haven't seen results yet.

    Thankx,
    Masiah

    Medicines and their possible side effects can affect individual people in different ways. The following are some of the side effects that are known to be associated with this medicine. Because a side effect is stated here, it does not mean that all people using this medicine will experience that or any side effect.

    * Abdominal pain

    * Diarrhoea

    * Nausea

    * Indigestion (dyspepsia)

    * Ulceration of the stomach or intestine

    * Bleeding from the stomach

    * Retention of water in the body tissues (fluid retention), resulting in swelling (oedema)

    * Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)

    * Abnormal reaction of the skin to light, usually a rash (photosensitivity)

    The side effects listed above may not include all of the side effects reported by the drug's manufacturer.

    Im sure you know all this being an educated consumer.

    I'd take fish oil and some bromelain.
    Systemic enzymes also.

    Naproxen sodium (aleve) and advil are good for inflammation.

    aleve lasts longer (12 hours), whereas advil lasts 6-8 hours

    if you have a pinched nerve you should try at chiropracter too. It really helped my neck out.
