Hello, I just joined this group today but I have been following it on Facebook for some time now. I have been living with rheumatoid arthritis for 5 years now. I am having some very painful flare ups just now and my doctor has just given me celecoxib to take alongside dihydrocodiene instead of diclofenac, I was wondering if anyone has any advice on it. Any advice really appreciated 😃
