Yes, losing weight would help the pain. Are you taking anything for pain? I take Cellebrex twice a day for arthritis. Hope you feel better quickly.

Hi Nadine,
I have RA and take methotrexate but the pain in my hip and leg are very bad now and I wonder if Celebrex might help.

How long have you been taking it, and what are the side effects ... if any?

I've been taking Cellebrex about three years. I haven't had any side effects from it. It reduces inflammation in the joints. Possibly Cellebrex would help your pain.

Take care, Nadine:)
I have RA and my dr. wants to put me on methotrexate. I"m scared to start. How has your experience been on it?

I have taken celebrex for years with NO side effects. It helps a little for me, but none of the NSAID's seem to work very well and I've been on just about all of them since I was diagnosed in 80. I'm 37. Dr. wants to put me on methotrexate to prevent further hip deterioration, which is very severe, to prolong hip replacement surgery.

Have you had cortizone shots in the joints? If so, did those help? They helped me a ton, but haven't had any since the 80's.
