I hope the celebrex helps with your arthritis. I absolutely cannot live without this drug! It makes my quality of life worth living and helps me keep most of my fibro flares at bay.
As far as the symptoms list goes, also note what you did to help yourself... Took an aspirin, took a nap, had a family member rub your shoulders, whatever intervention you tried and if it helped or not. Note your pain levels and how they affected your everyday living. (Example: "Vacuumed the living room, had to stop, back pain was huge" or "Couldn't stand at the stove to cook, needed to sit in a chair") This will help your doc see the impact that the fibro is having on getting around or getting things done. Good luck with the new doc.
