Hi, I am looking for treatment for RA that does not require injections. I was researching NSAIDs and am thinking of asking my doctor about Celebrex. I was just diagnosed with RA and want to find something I can take daily just during flare ups and not something I have to take all the time. Any other suggestions? Julie

Hi, I have had feet problem , where my feet would ache and the bottoms of my feet would hurt, now for a long time. I noticed about 2 to 3 years my legs would get tired easily, I would not be tired but my legs would need to rest. This past year while on the treadmill in my left leg, it felt like I tore something in the inner left knee, since then it has gotten so bad that the pain and aching from the knee to my foot would be so bad it would keep me awake. I gave up exercising and now I can hardly stand for any length of time without such great pain. It s almost an ache like my carpetunnel on my right wrist when it flares up. My doctor says it is some kind of arthritis. I think it has to do with either my arteries or a ligaments in my leg, at first I thought it was my muscles in the legs, do to my legs would tire so fast. what do you think.

Approximatly 2 weeks ago my mild arthritis began to flare, is now extremely red, spreading quickly to other joints and swollen. At times the end of my fingers from mid knucle up will blanch completely white and my nails will turn blue. My fingers get extremely cold. I have been tested for RA and the test was negative.
