I have DDD and severe shoulder/collar bone pain set on by a past car accident. I had been on Celebrex once before and it didn't do anything for me positive or negative.

I have advanced chondromalacia in my knees and severe degeneration L5-S1. I think for mild degenerative pain, Celebrex probably would be helpful, but for my moderate pain it is of no benefit.
