Re: Fingers bent and swollen
I'd suggest you get a second opinion with a Rheumatologist.
As soon as is physically possible get finger splints for her to wear at night or those contractures (bent joints) could become permanent.
Really, a Celebrex script and that's it? No x-ray? He should've done an x-ray just to look for fracture if nothing else, yeesh!
You know Celebrex (a COX 2 inhibitor) shouldn't be taken by anyone with anykind of cardiovascular problem?
