Hi debter, I got an email alerting me of your message, so I do see your post! Sorry for your situation and your pain, but I am glad to see that I'm not alone. Not all doctors are the same, and some are better than others.
I hope your orthotics work too! I wasn't on Celebrex long enough to notice any edema, but years ago I was on 1,000mg Naproxen daily for a long time (that's the maximum amount anyone can take per day, prescribed at one point for my neck pain, which is a whole other story!) and I did notice major edema. It caused high blood pressure, edema, etc! I ended up stopping it when I started seeing a chiropractor regularly.
Good luck! Keep me posted!
I hope you see this, it is a year later. I think after 5 months that i am going to be diagnosed with tarsal tunnel. I have felt like i am being treated like a hypochodriac too. I am getting orthotics next week. I hope they work like yours did. Did celebrex help you, It is causing edema with me.
I would like to hear your story! Share it when you have the time...I'll keep an eye out for it!
You Have my greatest sympathy! Boy do I have a story for you. I will be posting it on here soon. You are not crazy and there is hope ! I promise you will be ok . God is watching over his children and , I was led to this site just to share my story with you. Please continue praying and I will be in contact. God Bless you !
Also forgot to add that after the Army ortho doc removed my cast and I still complained of pain, he said that there was nothing more that he could do for me and sent me to a pain management clinic within the Army. For my last remaining year of service, they gave me a "prescription," or "doctor's orders" to wear tennis shoes that had a good arch support with my BDUs (battle dress uniform...the camoflage uniform you see military folk wearing!). I just had to carry around the doctor's Rx in case anyone questioned why I was in tennis shoes instead of military issued boots.
