Discussions that mention celebrex

Arthritis board


I am a 52 year old woman and for at least 4 years I have been in excruciating pain. It started with my right groin and then the doctor did and MRI and said I have degeneration in my L5, Si. I did physical therapy and it did not really help, Then I found out about a traction table called IDD therapy. I had 20 visits and it really helped for about 2 months. I did eight more treatments and it did nothing for me. I had another MRI in December on my hip and back. It showed two small cysts in my hip and my back was the same. The Ortho doctor just tole me that the cysts meant arthritis and put me on celebrex. The celebrex does not help very much. I am in so much pain in my hip and thigh it feels like its going to breaK. My groin hurtas terribly bad and I have to limp alot of thime to walk. The pain has been making me sick and feel like I am going to faint. I can't hardly deal with it amymore. Does anyone have this proble and do you have any suggestions for me. I am a teacher and I have already had to miss two days without pay for feeling so bad. Please contact me if you have this problem and tell me if you have received any help.

Thank you

Pam, this could be from either your back OR your hip or BOTH! As a temporary measure, see if using a cane helps you. Have you had blood tests run for RA? Have you had a CT myelogram done? This would show if there is stenosis in the spine. Do both hips hurt equally or just one? You really need a second opinion.

Oh, it can take two weeks to feel the full benefit from Celebrex. Good luck!
