lol Same here(though I'm two years older then you
), I still look exactly like I did my senior year of high school.
Once when I was at the doctors the nurse asked if that man(and she pointed at my husband) was my father.
Granted he is 14 years older than me but still!
I'm not on any pain medication for my arthritis right now, nothing seems to work though I'm going to be trying Celebrex next. It just feels unfair like I shouldn't be having to deal with this until another 30 years but whatcha gonna do?
Celebrex? are you sure? You may want to wait until May 2014 when the trials BY Pfizer are complete.
The securities class-action lawsuit, which was filed by the Teachers Retirement System of Louisiana
(TRSL) on behalf of Pfizer stockholders, alleges that the five defendants violated federal securities laws by concealing the results of studies involving Celebrex, a COX-2 inhibiting anti-inflammatory drug, and Bextra, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that was pulled from the market in 2005.
Off-label promotion of COX-2 drugs including Bextra, Geodon, Lyrica and Zyvox, with "the intent to defraud or mislead" cost the pharma giant a loss of 90 percent of its 2008 income. The fine:
$2.3 billion (then the largest fine of its kind).

But, I am sure Pfizer will prevail, if this is pulled from the market for humans, it will likely make it's way into the veternary practices, just like Rimadyl
You should really look into natural anti-inflammatories, like wobenzyme, curcumin, devils claw
Try "Fast Joint Care +" it works AMAZING...manufactured by Genuine Health (Canada), but can get through drugs.com (or other)
They also have an arthritis one - same as noted but with an added couple ingr.
