Thanks, Helen. I hope I find a doc too. I've been putting it off because of financial issues. I have insurance but there is that deductible, and even though I had an MRI in 2008 they will probably want to do another one.

I take a medication called Diclofenac Sodium, which is the generic for Voltaren. It's an NSAID which does help a lot, BUT, there is the sodium in it. When I keep my dose low, twice a day, I'm ok on it, but if my back acts up badly and I have to go to 3 doses a day I really retain water.

Does anyone else have back and/or arthritis problems and have a suggestion about a decent med that won't cause water retention? I relocated and haven't found a new back doc to ask the question. My endocrinologist has been authorizing refills on this prescription, but I don't want to ask him about other meds.
