Osteoarthritis and pain relievers
shipwrecksam posted:
I have Osteoarthritis in my shoulders and also have spinal issues due to fracturing my spine. I have been prescribed Celebrex, which helps my shoulders, but I still have back pain. I can't take Naproxen or other Nsaids with it. What pain relievers can I take?

We have no way of answering that since we don't know your medical history. Talk to your doctor to see what he suggests. There are all kinds of pain killers out there. What works for one person won't work for another. There is a lot of trial and error involved in finding the right med and the right dosage. A pain management doctor is the best for figuring this out for you.
