I saw my rheumy yesterday. He is the 2nd I've gone to from a "Good Doc" list. I have taken anti-inflammatories before;Relafin,Naprosyn,vioxx, and celebrex. None of them did a thing for my pain. I am currently taking Ultram for pain and I have also been on Ultracet. They are also not controling my pain. I am getting worse by the day and am to the point where I can barely make it up my stairs or pick up and hold my baby. My right leg hurts so much that at times I feel like I need a cane. Just typing this is giving me severe back pains. I have undergone tests to see if I have any inflammation, and they have all come back negative. My doctor knows this. He decided to prescribe Bextra for me. When I asked him why he would give me an anti-inflammatory he said that "maybe" the pain reliever in the Bextra would help me along with the Ultram. So I did some research on Bextra and it scared the wits out of me. I left a message with the doc saying I won't take it and am waiting to hear back. Has anybody out there had any success with Bextra for Fibro? Has anyone with no inflammation ever used Bextra in conjunction with other pain meds? Does it work. I am too afraid to take the Bexrta unless I know it will work. Thanks, Maria PS for some reason I could not post any messages here the last few days and I just got it straightened out and I am so relieved to be back!
