Renewal and Relapse: An Anti-inflammatory Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Story


Very interesting story of how Celebrex may have helped one CFS patient. And, once more, an excellent demonstration of how not all patients will respond in the same way to the same treatments, even if they have the same symptoms to start with, which is never a given.

As I also have arthritis, it was for that which I was prescribed Celebrex / Celecoxib some years ago and, whilst it was never intended to treat either my ME/CFS nor fibromyalgia, it certainly didn't have the effect of giving me any more energy either.

Celebrex was the only pain relief (that I can even tolerate - most of them make me throw up), so far, that actually has managed to make any inroads into the pain I suffer with the arthritis in my spine and hip, but it certainly did nothing for any other forms of pain that I associate with ME/CFS/FMS.

However, I was never really easy about taking something that had "risk of death" as a known side-effect, even less keen to take something that required me to pop yet another set of pills to guard against other possible side effects of intestinal bleeding and on top of that, which made me so constipated that I was in pain and felt so ill and could often hardly move from the discomfort. Fucking irony or what?

If ME/CFS turns out to be an inflammatory disorder there will undoubtedly be increased interest in using anti-inflammatories to treat the fatigue, depression, cognitive and other problems present.

I agree that if ME/CFS turns out to be an inflammatory disorder it will undoubtedly increase interest in using anti-inflammatories to treat the fatigue, depression, cognitive and other symptoms, but like everything else with these complicated and unpredictable ailments, it's unlikely to be a case of "one size fits all."
