Common Questions and Answers about Celebrex for tendonitis

One of the most common causes of shoulder pain is rotator cuff tendonitis. Rotator cuff tendonitis is also commonly called shoulder tendonitis, or shoulder bursitis. Shoulder tendonitis can make simple shoulder movements painful and commonly causes shoulder pain while sleeping. Have you been on NSAID'S for pain before starting physiotherapy? The first step of shoulder bursitis treatment is to decrease the inflammation. The best rule of thumb to follow: 'If it causes pain, don't do it!
Hi there, I've had shoulder tendonitis for several years now. I've tried Physio, Accupuncture, Cortisone injections, Chiropractic and even surgery (about 16 months ago), but it's still not 100% better (it throbs and aches from time to time). The biggest mistake I made was leaving it too long after I had noticed the problem without seeing a doctor. I assumed it was a pulled muscle, so just generally rested it, and didn't actually see a doctor about it for about 5 months.
For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
I have applied ice regularly for the swelling and a topical anti-inflammatory for the pain. Xrays did not show any fracture in the wrist. When this problem developed, I had been playing many hours of racket sports with a lot of wrist movement, so it made sense to me when they diagnosed it as tendonitis. But why is it taking so long to heal ???? I try not to use my wrist unnecessarily, and have not played racket sports for almost a year. signed...
Michael Gross I have heard a lot about a new injection technique with platelets for all sorts of orthopedic injuries. What’s this about? In Europe, and more recently in the United States, there has been an increasing use of patient’s own blood products to stimulate healing in a variety of settings.

PRP injections got a big publicity boost when two of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ stars, Hines Ward and Troy Palamalu, were treated with PRP before they returned from injuries to win the Super Bowl.
I would imagine the fluid load increase could also cause additional edema in your ankles, but that's just my opinion, I'm not a Doctor. I have a prescription for Celebrex for my knees due to OA and I am hesitant to take it for that reason. Having said that, ibuprofen is at the low end of the NSAIDS and would have less of an effect, although 1,800 mg a day is a good amount. You should ask you doctor this questions. Hope some of this helps, Good luck!
However, it is still hurting and today I saw my PCP who sent me for an Xray to make sure it isn't broken. When the spot is pressed on, the pain is exquisite. I had some pain as he turned my hand/arm/wrist to check the tendons, but not as much as that spot. I have ankylosing spondylitis and have had hand involvement for some time. Due to sinus surgery, I've had to delay my Remicade and just went back on my Celebrex last week. I had to go off methotrexate due to increased liver enzymes.
prior the only pain was onset of golfers elbow maybe once or twice for a week at a time. Pain got much more serious after lifting bags of garden soil at work. A strong pinch in the left elbow near medial zone, consistently hurt for a couple of days then slowly subsided to a constant pain that i still have today. went to doctors x-ray mri, nothing they had me diagnosed with medial epecondilitis went through occupational therapy.....
My doctor has had me on a trial perscription of pms-meloxicam, having already tried celebrex and naproxin. The meloxicam has been excellent for my feet and elbow but over the past two weeks my knee has taken a turn for the worse. As a matter of fact I found this forum this morning because I am home from work after being up all night with a throbbing pain and my mobility this morning is terrible. Even putting pants on was a challenge. I was wondering how quickly your knee pain progressed?
Right arm burns frequently, right hand numbness and have tendonitis in right shoulder. L-3L-4L-5L6 minor narrowing. Have lower right sensitivity in my back and have done for several years, numb right foot. Dx’d sacroiliitis. Neck has started hurting when I turn my head or try to hold my head up straight. Hard to sleep due to discomfort. My last imaging was just a year ago, since then my neck has started cracking nearly every time I move my head.
My regular doctor called this morning and my blood work was normal (as I expected it would be). He really wants me to start Celebrex for the joint pain. I'm very resistant to that. Mostly, because I really think it is more of a muscle issue than it is a joint issue. I think I'm out of alignment LOL I don't want to take Celebrex when I don't think it will address the real issue and I'm nervous about the potential side effects.
My new dr gave me the same when I asked for something other then celebrex (after 3 days stops working and starts making me sick). If I had known that I would've made it a priority to go pick it up the same day. I was planning to pick it up tomorrow anyway, so I'll let you know my experience with it.
over the past 2 years I have had tendonitis in right arm [ tennis elbow} swollen knees, extreme pain and fever in finger joints and toe joints..limited movementof ankles..shoulder pain and stiffness in both shoulders...all RA tests have come back normal ..I also had a bone density scan for osteo and it came back negative ..now I'm taking 400 mg of celebrex a day and today started taking B12..
I've been on oxycodone for 2 years and prior was on perks for 10. Which I didn't become addicted until I started on the oxycodone. Many people will say they aren't strong enough to taper but me personal aren't strong enough to do it cold turkey. I was taking 5 15s a day and tapered down to 2 1/2 a day which I worked with my dr but now I'm back up to 4 a day since my surgery. I have very low blood pressure to begin with even prior to taking pills.
My pain started about 4 years ago after I had a nervous breakdown and tried really hard to overdose. I obviously have a high tolerance for medications of any kind. Since then, I have chronic everything it seems. Depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, PTSD, fibro, arthritis of an elderly person and I'm only 37. If "itis" is at the end of the word, I have it. Tendonitis and bursitis in both knees and shoulders. Plantar faciitis that won't go away.
I have been an avid weight lifter for about 5 years, and a regular rock climber for about 1 year. At the end of January of this year, I was prescribed 10 days of Levaquin with a (6 day) Prednionse burst pack, for a sinus infection. On the 9th or 10th day of the Levaquin, I started to experience severe pain in both biceps, along the inside of my elbows. I also had less severe pain in my shoulders, forearms, and the bottom of my elbows (the tennis elbow region).
so now they use ocassional Celebrex but low dosing and not long-term. Voltaren worked for one as an alternative but my other daughter to this day still cannot take anything even as plain as Motrin without GI terrible pains.
I left there crying and more hopeless. I have been on celebrex by PCP for the last month due to bursitis in hips and heels and it is not helping. Today after laying in bed for 2 days decided what do I have to lose I will call rheum and make an appointment. I thought maybe he did not want to treat me preop as I was on so many meds and getting ready for brain surgery and after all he was right the surgery did help but did not fix my overall pain. Today I saw my rhem and he was very nice.
I have tendonitis in many joints most of the time because I have ehlers-danlos syndrome and only just recently found out that I have it. Because I never knew I should be extra careful with my joints, I kind of pushed myself and as a result, I now end up having to get many steroid injections. However, one of my elbows, which has only ever had 2 injections, has started wasting kind of a lot. I had one injection in the fall and another in early march.
(I get in the sun every day, so not sure why I am low.) I am on thyroid medicine and take Celebrex for tendonitis. Sorry this is so long but didnt want to leave anything out. Thank you for any ideas. Oh, LOL , and my left knee pops out of joint very easily.Although very painful I can usually snap it right back in. Thanks again.
Various x-rays, bonescans, etc haven't shown anything. I don't perceive any muscle weakness. I take Celebrex for various rheumatalogical symptoms. Thanks much.
Ibuprofin twice a day whether there is pain or not. Either that or he will prescribe Celebrex for daily use if I'd prefer that. He said it will keep inflammation down, and hopefully prevent these episodes. It's worth a shot. Take care, and I hope you find a solution soon. PM me if you want to talk. This *****, and it gets old really quick.
Thank you for sharing about your success with celebrex and wellbutrin! I've been struggling with SSRI's for several years and still haven't found on that works for me without lethargy, or incredible anxiety! Also, I've never been rx'd celebrex for my joints; just methocarbamol. The sun allergy symptoms sounds like it could be discoid lupus, but rely on the immuno fluorescent stain to come back from the doctor!
I haven't really have the cough back since but I still get the stomach pain every time I take Ibupropin for a week or two. I only do this when I have to. Celebrex, or naproxin and they don't work for my pain and also Celebrex also gives me insomnia after a couple of days on it. Anyway, I hope you recover soon and if you switch to Zantac I would probably take it a month longer than your symptoms last. I do know what you mean about getting everything at once.
and frequent muscle cramps, including spasms in the neck/shoulder area that lock my neck at an angle, pull my shoulder back and are extremely painful. Seeing a neurologist for headaches. he has me on cymbalta; it worked for 2 months and now the headaches/eye pain/numbness is back. seeing a gastro guy for stomach stuff, he has me on Nexium for gastroparesis. Any ideas what might be causes all or most of the symptoms? Most doctors seem to focus on one symptom and don't look at whole.
Have had several MRI's was misdiagnosed and treated for MS for several years before a new neurologist stated it is not MS. Spinal Taps are negative, Negative for Lymes. Am currently taking, Neurontin, Celebrex, Cymbalta, a muscle relaxer, Trazadone. Have intermintent periods of dizziness and loss of balance. Had a problem with WPW. My main problem is chronic pain, docs say it is fibromyalgia but they don't know why the brain lesions. Can the brain lesions be related to pain.
I have had 2 rheumatologists diagnose me with fibromyalgia, and I have a question for any of you who actually have fibromyalgia. do you have pain in areas that are not where your muscles connect to your bones? I guess that would be joints. I have chronic tendinopathy in both shoulders and both elbows and sacroiliitis. The sacroiliitis just makes it so that I can't straighten up once I have been in a bent bent position. It also causes me a lot of pain with walking.
So, I freaked out, cried a couple of times and went and laid down. I took Celebrex and am icing it. So, i hope the next couple of days don't get worse. I am scared and so tired of this it is hard. I want to get stronger not keep staying even. It is hard and I'm not doing much as it is. Well, wish me luck in this not being too bad of an event and that I get through the pain without too long a set back. How do I prevent this other than not being so out to lunch?
I'd like to know the answer, too! I have had shoulder tendonitis for years! It waxes and wanes, but there is never a minute when I am not in pain. Like you, anti-inflammatories don't help much and tear up my stomach. I don't take narcotics--I don't want to go down that road. Icing the shoulder 4 times a day for 20-30 minutes seems the most helpful thing, and simply resting it as much as possible when it is bad. Heat feels good, but can make tendonitis worse.
