    My brother has used Celebrex for some elbow problems...he said his doc told him it will over time erode part of the tendons. Not good IMO.


    I dated a girl about 4 years ago that had an arthritic hip from a car crash and her MD put her on Vioxx....After a few weeks she noticed a good bit of hair shedding when she showered-and I am tellin ya she had a beautiful mane.

    She talked to her doc about it and he said that was a somewhat typical side effect from Vioxx...she quit using it right there and then.

    Have you looked into glucosamine?? Do A google search, see what you find.

          I dont know if this is what you are looking for, but I have severe knee issues as well. I have tried all of the anti-inflammatory drugs...only minimal relief, Ive tried glucosamin/chondroitin got nothing from that. My ortho gave me a med called Bextra. You take it daily for pain. It works. It has absolutely no side effects that I have encountered, but it is doing the trick. Just an idea for you.

            You could also try acupucture-works great for pain relief. You can do a search here on IM for "acupuncture"-I put up a thread several months ago with a couple of studies-with very large groups of people-that indicated acupuncture is excellent in pain management.

              Vioxx and Celebrex both interfere with actual healing around bones in a study of shoulder surgeries. Shoulder surgeries were 80% unsuccessful when Celebrex was used as a pain med.

              The newest technique for knee joint pain is leeches. This was developed in Essen, Germany and involves attaching 6 leeches to the knee until they are done feeding. After this treatment the subjects are pain free for 6-12 months. They believe there is something in leech saliva that does the trick. You can probably do this at home if you can get the leeches from a medical supply house.
