From this study (12 months ago):
Items in section 3 are currently under evaluation. Most began to emerge, subtly, approximately 11 years ago and have intensified over the past 2-3 years. Myelomalacia involving a 9.5-cm segment of the posterior column of the spinal cord was demonstrated on MRI 2 weeks ago.
I tried to modify my first report but couldn't t so I must add that my main problem at this point is low blood pressure. my range is now between 103-to 110 high and my low is 60 -75. Pulse varies from 47 to 60.I also have arrhythmia which I think is due to excessive dehydration under physical exercise because of the medication zestortetic which is also a 2 way medication one being water reduction. I am not sure if this low pressure is what causes me to be fatigue all the time and no resistance to physical work. when I do well my blood pressure is up in the 130,s. so I assume that's part of the problem. My doctor is worried about the combination of Celebrex and Coumadin but no adverse reaction as of yet. In fact Celebrex fixed my back completely and did not alter my INR and stools are normal. Because of my doctors concerns my intake of Celebrex was reduced to 100 mgs in the morning and 100 mgs at night. My back pain returned and is severe. I am looking for an alternative. I must add that my low blood pressure happened after an arrhythmia episode and never returned to normal.
My assumption is that when I train at the gym or work physically hard and sweat the zestoretic which is part water eliminator is too much. I assume blood pressure and water retention in my case should be separate. My doctor has concerns with celebrex and Coumadin but I have not seen any change in the inr because of it and no stomach or bleeding in the stools.This Celebrex really does wonders for me. I take the 200 mg in the morning and 200 at night. The 100mg Celebrex is not strong enough to be effective.
