I stopped taking vioxx almost 2 weeks ago and am feeling some pain in places that I did not feel pain before. I assume that the inflamation that the vioxx was preventing is now putting pressure on other parts of my ribs or spine. Does anyone else have this experience after stopping?

Although I'm not taking Vioxx, I am taking another prescription NSAID. It takes 2-3 weeks, but when I've tried getting off of them before, my pain increases somewhat. The difference for me isn't terribly dramatic, but I definitely feel a lot better when I'm taking the NSAID then when I'm not.
