My Orthopedic doctor recently gave me samples of Celebrex for my stress injury in my left hip and knee due to a severe car wreck. I have only taken 2 doses and yesterday around 6pm (after taking my dose in the AM) I started vomiting every tiny little thing on my stomach. I was unable to hold down bread; grapes; soda; gatorade; water; any sustainable meal. Now I am having light headedness, numbess/cold in the left part of my face, including my eye and i'm still extremely nauseated. I have shallow breathing and just feel plain weak.
Please see your doctor (or go to emergency) as soon as possible.
