Hello, I seem to have reoccurring shingles more frequently while on Celebrex. I do not know if there is a connection or not because, I also had shingles when I was 12 and 24 years of age. I also had shingles with both my pregnancies. I am extremely healthy except for arthritis in my hips from over use (I was a gymnast in college and a performing arts major and dance) that is why i take Celebrex. I have been taking it probably seven years and for the last few years ( about 4yrs) now I seem to have reoccurring shingles at least 2 times a year. - Thinsport
