Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • After being off medication just over a week, swelling is almost gone....but now 4 nodules have appeared on my shins. After doing online reseach I believe these, in addition to initial swelling, to be attributed to meloxicam. Ankle pain and swelling I was experiencing got so bad I had to resort to a walker in the mornins......I am 48. Currently taking generic ibuprofen and feeling much better.. Hopefully these nodules will not worsen and will disappear.
