    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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?
    _swank_ responded:
    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.
