Celebrex

Celebrex

Have you taken celebrex and what has been your experience ? I've been reading about it being a non steroid, pain relief and anti inflammatory

Yes, the physicians have learned from our experiences. Most of them do. It just shows that they cannot properly if we don’t speak up and tell them as well as we can where we hurt, is there a timing, is it sharp or stabbing, etc. My belief is that the/our doctors are only as good as we let them be. If you feel you can’t talk to your physician or he/she won’t listen, tell him/her. Some times you have to butt heads and then you might have the best doctor patient relationship. Sometimes, due to time constraints, they rush in and rush out. They usually have a memorization script, that pertains to your health, of what to ask to see how you are doing. Be honest. Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox! Sorry all. I’m pledging to only write short notes from now on! Hugs & fairy light kisses!❤️❤️🐇🐰🐇🐰🐰🙃🧚🧚🧚🧚🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻😇

Make sure before going for any blood test you drink plenty of fluids it will help the veins and easier to get blood out of.
Living with constant pain is no joke. Lots of fatigue with this rheumatoid arthritis and thyroid disease. But best to keep moving if you can.
It does help. I really have to push myself at times. Biologic treatment is helping to a certain degree. Also with painkillers sometimes anti-inflammatory’s and steroids as well. Be careful with the diet , I also used to suffer With gout.
When I had an x-ray at the chest for RA they found a massive pericardial cyst at the heart. As big as my hand obstructing into my airways.
Had surgery and had it removed through my ribs. When the surgeon deflated the lung he found another one in there too, The good thing about them after being tested they were non-cancerous.. So always get yourself checked out.
It may seem nothing sometimes but that’s what they found in me..
I know tell me I have lots of lumps inside the body. I first felt them around my waist I guess they are cysts they do not seem bothered about them at the moment until they become troublesome. They were seen on an Ultrascan
Too many to count the good thing is they are on the inside as long as they are not causing a problem. Never leave things too long always get them checked.
That is my advice to you all. 🤞🤞

Over the years , bring on all these different medications i have had to have numerous blood tests to keep an eye on the liver and kidney function . Due to all these blood tests tge veins in my right arm have collapsed . Nobody can get blood from that arm . When it come to getting antibiotics for infected leg ulcers intravenously, it is impossible to find a vein . If they do manage to get a vein,the cannula can hardly be in 24 hours , before it packs up (forgotten the correct word for it ) , but the cannula has to be removed .
Days are mixed between good and dab, today was a reasonable day.
Hope people are keeping going , and bearing up to the constant pain that we have to bear .
Hope you have decent nights sleep all xx🙂😃

Pain Queen, please know Celebrex Is a NSAID! If you cannot take any NSAID’s do not take it without the advice of your rheumy or other competent physician. To the others that it worked for, I’m happy for you but jealous too. You need the thank the Good Lord that it helps. I have so many weird reactions to drugs that it is ridiculous!

My comment was about diclofenac cream. It works wonders for my flare ups. I’ve tried Celebrex before but it just killed my stomach. Sorry for any confusion.
