I'm glad I wasn't prescribed methotrexate as so many with RA are. It is a low-dose chemo drug. I believe sulfasalazine is a substitution for it. I'll be… read more

Has Anyone Started Taking Celebrex And Was Taken Off Of It Suddenly For Possible Renal Kidney Failure?

Has Anyone Started Taking Celebrex And Was Taken Off Of It Suddenly For Possible Renal Kidney Failure?

I had blood work done and when the results came back my rheumatologist took me off Celebrex immediately because there was something high (I think creatine) and he was afraid of renal kidney failure. I hurt so bad for days after going off Celebrex. Any suggestions?

What else are you taking for your RA? Perhaps a low dose of a steroid might help. Call your rheumy and ask for an alternative to the celebrex

How Long Before I Should See Improvement On Celebrex?

How Long Before I Should See Improvement On Celebrex?

I was diagnosed by my PCP in early February, but can't see the rheumatologist until April 26. In the meantime I have done 2 courses of prednisone and today started Celebrex while I wait. I started with pain in my hands and it is now in hands, wrists, elbows, knees, and ankles. It disturbs my sleep.

Dentist Appointment Trigger?

Dentist Appointment Trigger?

I am still very new to this, I have not yet been officially diagnosed, I do not see the Rheum until the end of January. My acute symptoms started in September and while I am waiting to get in to see the Rheum my GP prescribed Celebrex. The Celebrex has been helping with the pain and inflammation, but doesn't get rid of it completely. They have upped the dosage to the max dose just before Christmas. I tried a couple of times not taking the medication, to see if I had magically been… read more

Burning Feet

Burning Feet

I am a long time RA person but recently, and I never had this before, the soles of my feet are burning. Shoes do not seem to effect it as it can happen when I am barefooted. All of a sudden the bottom of my feet will start feeling like they are on fire. I take MTX, Enbrel, Celebrex and Gabepentin but nothing seems to make this stop. It will go away but has been coming right back. Anyone else have this? If so, what do you use for it?
