I quit taking Celebrex 3 days ago when the FDA changed the label. My arthritis symptoms have returned and are much more severe. I have been on Celebrex for over 10 years. Swelling and inflammation are much worse and my chest is hurting near my heart. I have substituted turmeric and have also taken 2 aspirin at bedtime for the last two days with food. I regularly do water aerobics and work out in the yard, but find my days are torture now. I'm also having headaches, muscle tension, and extreme fatigue from the constant pain. What is my best option now?
