Anyone happy with Celebrex?
I've started taking Celebrex for my joint pains. I was having pain severe enough to wake me up at night. I haven't had a night like that since starting Celebrex, but I don't feel much relief either. My wrists and ankles KILL me. Morning, all day, and night. I don't have any swelling (which almost ticks me off, because maybe it would give some validity to my pain) but they are in a constant ache. I don't know if I'm aloud to take aleve or anythig like that later in the day when I'm guessing the Celebrex where's off. I think I might ask for something stronger when I see the PCP in a few weeks.
