  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Have not yet been diagnosed with anything in particular, but given Celebrex due to symptoms of Inflammatory Disease by Ortho Surgeon after having Rotator Cuff Surgery. Symptoms for Inflammatory Disease started just weeks after my surgery. White taking Prenisone (21 pac) for 6 days, all pain was completely gone. Upon completion of the 21 pac, symptoms returned. Then, was prescribed Celebrex 200mg/day until I see a Rheumatologist on April 2nd. The Chest Discomfort started about a week after taking Celebrex and comes and goes. Not real painful, just occurs while taking a deep breath. Could this have anything to do with the Celebrex or most likely associated with possible RA or PR? Thank You, and good day.
