I don't know about this

Today marks week three of Celebrex treatment -- five days at the double dose -- and still no benefit is being felt.
In fact, the headaches continue, although not as severe.  Does that mean there's hope yet?
The leg cramps seem to have disappeared though.  That's a good sign, to be sure.
But  I tell you -- I am in a fog and filled with all-over body aches as though I'm in a fibro flare-up.  Can't describe it any other way.
Yesterday, I felt like I had been beaten up by a dozen thugs.  Was not pretty.  I slept the afternoon away again too.
I'm still managing my 20 minutes on the treadmill, but can't do my weight regime.  My elbows and shoulders are simply too sore to endure that workout.
So the question remains:  Just when should I start feeling better?
I have a friend who has used Celebrex in the past and she said that whenever she went on it, she felt better within 24 hours.
Go figure!

it took about 3 or 4 weeks for me to feel better on it.

Thank you Heather, that's encouraging. I'll wait at least another week before passing judgement. Sure do hope it kicks in soon!
