I quit taking the Celebrex because of all that I read and I have heart problems in my family, so I did not want to take the risk. I stopped in Dec. and had been doing fine until the past few days. My arms and shoulders are really starting to bother me. My hands have been going numb as well as hurting. Just wondering what other meds there are to take. I would like to do some research before going back to my doctor. Thanks!!
