Does Nabumetone help you more with pain than Celebrex?

Txbetty and Hal, Like both of you, I have been on Celebrex for at least a year. I also take HCTZ 12.5 mg and started Methotrexate two months ago. I did have itching all over like you described, Txbetty, and I figured out that it was simply the particular brand of folic acid I was taking.

I have been on Celebrex for over a year and had fantastic results. I suffered pain in my neck and shoulders due to arthritis. Celebrex was like a miracle for me. I was going to physio for the pain, which did not good. Now after being pain free for one year I have been experiencing extreme itchiness all over my body. It feels like something crawling in my scalp, eyebrows, nose and beard. Then it feels like something biting me and there is nothing there and I have no bites . Yikes.
