Hi my mother takes diclofenac for her arthritis pain and says it works well. She also has injections once in a while, cortisone i think.I would recommend you start taking glucosamine supplements, they work wonders for arthritis if taken daily. You need to let it build up before you notice the relief but it is a wonder 'drug' and natural.

Hey r.petetschick,

I can recommend what I take for the arthritis in my body. Celebrex is a non steroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID) that is a COX 2 inhibitor so it doesn't affect the stomach as bad as some of the other NSAIDs. I have taken for years with great results. It does require a prescription from a doctor though.

Best wishes,

Laurie
