Celebrex

Celebrex

My Dr. Switched me to Celebrex from prednisone. It is not helping at all. Woke up this morning with such a sore foot I could hardly walk. Does anyone else have experience with Celebrex? Does it help with your pain management?

Common side effects of Celebrex (celecoxib) include headache, abdominal pain, indigestion, diarrhea, nausea, bloating, gas, dizziness, nervousness, headache, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, rash, and insomnia. Celebrex (celecoxib) may cause serious stomach and intestinal ulcers These are side affects for that celebrex. The Dr wanted to stick me on it but i flatly refused as of the side affects, I can't believe the meds they try and pump into us. I TRULY do understand that some of us just have to take them no matter what, but if they just understood the side affects that some of these meds do to us would be great. Some just make us feel worse. I now am taking acv and lemon juice in warm water every morning and night and my joint pain has eased so much. My knees and hip aren't so sore and even with my Colliodal silver my body is starting to feel a lot better and now ive been informed that i may have Coeliac disease so that's another problem i will need to work around. I refuse to take ibuprofen all the time as the body just gets immune to it and its a waste. I have my liver checked with blood tests and if the acidity get's too high then i cut down on the acv. I know that an epsom salts bath works wonders as the magnesium gets into the body quicker and the muscles need it. Its great for body aches and pain. Sorry its so long i just hate you guys being in so much pain and i just try to help as much as i can. You guys have lifted my spirits soooo much since i've been on here and i can't thank you enough. God Bless and sending lots of hugs. Take care

Celebrex helped for me, I have used it for 2 months and there after just when my knees were painful. I am using prednisone now with good results. Good luck.
