Have aches and pains that resemble Polymyalgia that I had 10 years ago but not diagnosed now. Celebrex doesn't seem to help although over the counter pain pills do help a little

    Hi @starbright57 welcome to the Online Community.

    I understand you have symptoms that resemble a previous diagnosis for polymyalgia and have discovered that the celebrex non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug isn't effective.

    Our website contains some information on polymyalgia which you may find useful, including treatments and hints on living with polymyalgia rheumatica.

    Do you have further information from your GP or rheumatologist as to what other treatments you might try? Do contact your health team if you are experiencing new or increasing levels of pain.

    Join in across the community, ask questions and give support. Call in to say how you are getting on, you will be most welcome.

    All best wishes
