Good evening everyone.
I am awake, it’s 12:13.
I have tried to sleep but the pain gets amplified when I get
into bed. Why is that?

I have been taking Meloxicam 15mg for about 3 weeks and Baclofen for about a week.
I am having trouble though with my stomach and GI tract.
Pain and aching from the Meloxicam and motility problems from the
It’s upsetting as they have helped allot.
I am trying to go off them but the pain and lack of sleep forces me
to continue.

I have had motility issues for a long time, I was tested and the results said that my stomach takes three times longer than the norm to empty.
So the Baclofen isn’t helping that problem. Then add an anti-inflammatory to a stalled tummy and it’s no wonder the pain.
Bowel function is not right either.

Not sure what to do. This flare has been so bad that I have been to my
GP several times this summer, the ER and my rheumatologist twice.
I am reluctant to call back again.

I'd see a gastroenterologist. They deal with the digestive system. I see one because of my Crohn's disease. They might know a good medication for pain that doesn't do this to your digestive system. Your body is telling you something so don't ignore it. You are trading one problem for another and that isn't good.

Hanginin, the Baclofen should not affect your motility issue. I have gastroparesis & have had it for years. My drs would have never put me on Baclofen if it would have had any affect on it. I do think you should see a gi dr & get checked out again.

Take care.
