... maddening! I stopped taking celebrex last week after learning that I have multiple stomach ulcers. After reviewing the side effects again I recognize many things that have happened to me over the last 4 years from heart palpitations, coughing, weight gain, and hemmoraging in my eye. Does anybody know if the side effects will go away or if I have done permanent damage? (I have significant arthitis pain which is why I took the medicine for so long) Thanks for any input you may have
