Happy New Year everyone! It has been along time since I posted but I read almost daily. I really find so much information from everyones experiences and stories. What brave, caring, and inspiring individuals!!! I was recently given some samples of celebrex but have been leery of taking them ( my mom took vioxx and had a heartattack same year} I dont know if the celebrex will be helpful but my pain is way high and my pain meds do not help for more than 3 hrs. Does anyone take celebrex and then stronger (opiates) for breakthrough pain? I have also been given the choice of trying morphine 90mg 1x a day but just the word seems so hardcore. I have had FM for over 12 years and was just recently diagnosed with Brachial Plexus. I have had 1 surgery in skalein? area but still have considerable pain in arm but numbness is better so Dr. thinks I am better and doesnt want to see me anymore. He said I should go back to my neck Dr. Please advise! Confused and exhausted but optimistic. Susan P.S. Thanks so much for listening!!
