I was recently prescribed Celebrex, but I am reluctant to take it because I have a history of gastro problems, and for that reason my doctor was reluctant to prescribe it to me. But I am desperate. The pain is fairly constant in my neck and radiates through my shoulders and gives me a headache. I just feel generally UNWELL. Sometimes I feel like everything from my neck up is burning. Anyway, if anyone else here has this condition, what worked for you? Was Celebrex effective, and did it cause stomach upset? We also tried steroids and I got no relief from that. And I want to no parts of narcotic painkillers. Thanks
