Discussions that mention celebrex

Arthritis board


I'm 32 years old and found out today I have osteoarthritis. My knee has been swelled up and hurting for 2 weeks. My neck has bothered me for a month. My back hurts a lot. The worst thing thats happened is my left wrist got so bad I couldn't use my hand at all for about 4 days. It's been 10 days now and I can use it now, it just hurts a lot to do it. The doctor wrote me a prescription for Diclofenac. He said I would be feeling better in a couple of days. A friend of mine takes Celebrex. Would taht better than what I have now? Is there any way to completely get over this stuff? Any info would be great.
I was diagnosed with OA at 38, I questioned the diagnoses also, especially since I wasn't in the Rheumatologists office very long and had no x-rays.
I tried celebrex for a while, but it didnt help me as much as diclofenac. Diclofenac worked really well but had to change recently to naprasyn, as the other was effecting my stomache
