    I have been taking Bextra for about month since I swichted to a new rheumy. It has almost completely taken all the morning stiffness away (there have been a few mornings I have had no stiffness. I had terrible pain in my foot and ankle to the point I would limp on it especially after sitting for awhile and I would say that the Bextra has taken away about 90% of that pain. I notice that I am not as achey. hope this helps...take care....Blessings........
