Many thanks for bothering to reply. I am most grateful. I shall certainly take your advice regarding "Celebrex" and investigate it with my doc.
I must admit I have now started to take Catafast and it helps. Quite frankly it has been 3 weeks now, so it is about time something works!!
Incidentally, I hail from sunny Malta - in Europe.

I'm not sure, but I do know that besides
there's nothing that helps me for my arthritis. If you would find some troubles with it either, then talk with your doc about celebrex.... not sure but i think that it might be helpful for you too...

In March 2015 I was diagnosed with cancer at the bottom end of my left ureter. My left kidney was removed along with the ureter. My bladder was infected and I was cleaned up.
A month later I did the standard 6 weeks of bcg. When I was tested, the euro told me they found a field of mushrooms!!. So I did another 6 weeks of bcg. This time round I was told they found only 2 on the dome of my bladder. I have now finished my third 6 week round of bcg and 3 days after I got terrible thigh and shoulder muscle and joint pains. I went to my euro who told me that bcg does not cause such pains. He admitted that the immune system gets a bit of a punishment.
So I went to another doctor who thinks that it could be dormant rheumatism or arthritis being woken up! due to my being 75 years old. He prescribed Telfast 180 grms _ 1 a day. This is my second day without positive results.It is now 8 days without positive results and I am running out of Paracetomol! which I must admit have been a great relief from the pain. I even have to lift my foot with my hand to get in my car.
Has anyone had the same symptoms?.
Could anyone tell me what medication was prescribed for them.
