I was told it would take 5 days to feel the full effects of the Meloxicam so I waited, in pain. It's been two weeks and I'm in a lot of pain. I called the Rheumatology department today and made an appointment with a different Rheumatologist. I told them I needed to get in ASAP. I have an appointment in two weeks. I have a constant dull pain in my back, ankles, toes, fingers, and wrists. The pain feels like it is coming from my bones and caused me to tremble, bringing me to tears at times, unless I am busy doing something. I don't have a fever or flu symptoms. I am not depressed, just really angry that I'm in pain.
