After literally taking all the anti-inflammatories in the house over the last few weeks (and we shop at Costco, so this was not a small number of pills), I finally gave in and went to see my rheumatologist yesterday about the massive and seemingly everlasting hip pain I've been dealing with lately.
He gave me a prescription anti-inflammatory that I had never heard of: nabumetone. They are like horse pills - I swear that picture is the actual size of the pills. In any event, I am really hoping that they work to manage some of this hip pain, because the next step is a short dose of prednisone. And we all know how I feel about prednisone.
Here's to hoping my hip pain is on its way out (and that prednisone will not be necessary)!
