OA pain with no drugs
An_249918 posted:
I took Celebrex for 20 years before having my knees replaced and then began to have serious gastrointestinal bleeding which required I stop taking any cox 2 inhibitors, or aspirin based pain relievers. I have been toughing it out for 4 years now and the pain is enough to keep me from getting a full night rest. Any ideas? I have recently gone to a gluten free diet in hopes that may help. I also take non aspirin based pain relievers but they seem to be of little help. I'll try anything. I have also had spinal surgery for spinal and foraminal stenosis. I'm still playing golf and doing quite well. The pain seems to abate when I am active, but hurts like the devil when I rest or try to sleep.
