    Has anyone had excessive swelling in the legs and feet while using celebrex? I have recently quit taking mine for a few days and have noticed signifigant improvement in my swollen legs and feet.

    Just curious if anyone has had the same experience..

    and had edema. When I talked with my Dr. he said that is a fairly common side effect and tends to occur more in people that already have trouble with edema. I stopped taking it and eventually found out my joint pain was caused by a parasite. Got rid of it and was much better. BTW, I had a scan which showed only slight arthritis in my shoulders so that was ruled out as the source of pain.
