    It has addiction potential if used regularly. Much less if used as I intend, only occasionally. I will need to try it, will be interesting. I have little to no problems if I stay at home or do some cycling. But one hour sightseeing or in a mall gets me beyond the amount of pain I can deal with.

    I used Piroxicam on and off for a couple of years. It gave me no side effects at all, not even mild stomach upset (which is the most common one). However it only half worked.

    I gave it up after discovering that my tight lower back muscles (due to inflammation) responded much better to regular magnesium supplements. Really well.

    Neither magnesium supplements nor acupuncture can hurt while you are waiting to try something else.

    I'll have to try the magnesium. I did start taking 1 turmeric capsule a day to help with the arthritis inflammation. Not sure that it's doing any good though. Maybe I need to take more.

    The very worst thing that I ever did with my back was going for a Thai massage. Some untrained idiot pressing on my bulging disc and trying to tickle my testicles from behind had me in agony.

    A funny little episode that happened during a stop over in Vienna during my latest flight. Standing in line for security check had given me quite a back pain. Lying down with my legs up helps. So I laid on the floor with my legs on one of those small tables beside the seats.

    But then a young and quite good looking cleaning lady of african descent came along and resolutely told me the floor is not for lying down and I need to move. She advised me that going along the line of terminals I would find couches where I can lay down comfortably. So far that was common courtesy. But a short time after I laid down at one of the couches she came looking for me, bringing me a blanket. She did not just give it to me, she actually covered me with the blanket while I was lying there. Just lacking the good night kiss.

    I guess my somewhat awkward standing up from the floor made her think it may be much worse than it actually was. Still a very nice thing to do, way beyond her duties.
