    ^acupuncture, lobelia and cannabis havent had a mention yet.

    As with financial threads like rip bitcoin, you'd be better off taking knowledgable advice from some worn out old hooker whose spent a lifetime on her knees than the fukkin chancers on here

    No worries, Wasp...happy to help.

    I myself am very careful with my health, and I had seen the info about increased chance of heart attack and/or stroke. But I think that's only with medium to long-term use.

    Last time I took it (when I got stuck half in and half out of the car), I took two tablets at night. The next day I was 90% ok. After that I did not take any more, and have been 95% fine since then (it was 3 months ago). I had been in pain for weeks before that, and that small amount seemed to break the cycle. And that was the third time I have done that in a period of years.

    Crikey....some people almost live on the stuff ! It seems to be part of their diet ! That would be cause for increased risk of heart attack and stroke....not a one-off episode of it. In fact, I would (probably highly) recommend against taking it long-term. Or even medium-term, really.

    If you want something to take long-term, I would recommend magnesium tablets. But they must contain magnesium in a few different forms. And it is best that one of those forms is not magnesium oxide. It is the least readily absorbed form.

    Pay no attention to Switch's snarky comments to me. When he was posting here under his former nicname (Chassamui) he inexplicably and suddenly took a dislike to me, despite our having shared the forum for years before that.. The only reason he ever offered was that he thought I was too bland a poster.
    Now he's in Indonesia with his ladyboy companion (yes.... in reality...this is not just a way of insulting him. He has posted photos) he seems a little more mellow. Until now, anyway.

    Neither inexplicable or sudden. You have been trolling your self impportance and self proclaimed expertise around the forum for too long. You are not an expert on any thing. You are a self important fool dispensing advice as if it were gold.
    WTF has my girlfriend got to do with the topic you cretin?
    You are the one who should be ignored.

    This was a public service announcement

    By the way, wasn't that you who responded to my informative post about magnesium and inflammation a few years ago, thanking me and saying that although it hadn't helped your back, it had stopped your irregular heartbeat ?

    You utter clod. I have never claimed to be an expert....just well-informed about certain things. And I have a sense of proportion that many others lack.
    This latest...about Celebrex....I have had personal experience with, which I am honestly and accurately relating.

    It wasn’t me who thanked you. I’m not that stupid.

    You seem happy to dispense advice as if you were a medical professional, yet by your own admission, you are simply relating your own experience.

    You are an idiot. The person you are advising is not you.
    Any medical advice, especially where drugs are concerned, should be given by a qualified medical professional following a medical history of the person concerned.

    You are an amateur, a quack and a snake oil salesman.

    We are all trying to help Wasp?

    Everything I have said on here comes from personal experience after having been hospitalized with lower back "injury" , recovery, taking a course on industrial back fitness and becoming a back fitness resource person. Then playing squash one day and couldn't stand back up. An Asia guy who attacked the sole of my foot with a spoon. Which actually worked as did the day in the company swimming pool.
    I still get the odd twinge but nothing to bother anyone on here about. That being said I was under 40 at the time and youth does speed up the recovery.

    So unless the Wasp has X-Ray proof of his "slipped disc" my money is still on muscular injury which will not automatically fix itself. Even if your wonder drug takes away the symptoms the underlying cause is still there and it needs to be fixed by physio type exercise. If not it will lie dormant and the next time the lower back is stressed it will be worse.

    Lots of stuff out there now on the interweb about the 3 pairs of muscles that support the spine and what happens if one muscle is overused and damaged.

    EDIT: Just for the record what I was given in hospital all those years ago would have been Flexeril. I remember because the pill is an unusual shape.

    Switch, use your brain....

    How else is Wasp going to get Celebrex except through a medical professional giving him a prescription, after asking him about any medication he is already taking, or any other conditions / factors that need to be taken into account ? ?

    Oh......and if, on the off-chance, a prescription is not needed for Celebrex in Thailand, that goes to show how benign it is.

    Besides which, I only advised Wasp to take Celebrex very briefly, and stated correctly that it is the most commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory here in Australia. If you complain of back pain, doctors give it out without a second thought. It is NOT like other drugs.

    Take your curmudgeonly comments elsewhere. And engage your brain next time, before typing.

    Do ya need a prescription from a doc to relieve MS?...(Multi-Knickers Syndrome)...Or can a fellow member advise another that he's being a Richardhead?...

    What might be the recommended dosage for someone like, say, Chastity?...

    DrBobolooski could perform the "operation"...Apparently, he and AnalAndy (proctology) are the only qualified quacks, though AAndy has made off like a quark...

    The knees have been treated with Ibuprofen gel , Ibuprofen tablets , Eucalyptus Balm and some very odd-looking tablets from the village doctor .
    They are much better .

    I have Celebrex , Glucosamine Sulphate , Turmeric and Apple Cider Vinegar all waiting for the next back problem .

    There are no plans to join a Harriers but I might try to do a bit of solo running .
    Leaving on Sunday for the UK . Minus 5 !

    To both Latindancer and Switch I would say that although the tone is regrettable there's nothing factually wrong in the things that both of you say .
    I wouldn't have known about Celebrex without LD ....... and it is indeed readily available in Thailand though only at a Pharmacy .
    I've read up on it and it's not a medicine that I'm going to take lightly . But I used to be a fit guy . I got paid to play Soccer ! Which tells you how low standards were in Australia .
    But I regularly played 4 times a week so it thoroughly pisses me off when I get a back episode and I can't get a friggin sock onto my foot !
    If 2 Celebrex relieves that level of pain I'll be happy indeed . And duly grateful.
    VocalNeal is emphatic about muscular problems . I have no reason to doubt him . I'll try everything out but you two having a go at each other is daft . If LD has taken magnesium and found it beneficial I certainly don't mind knowing . And if someone else found no benefit I don't mind knowing that either.

    If you guys want to have a spat then why not save it for something of more significance ?
    LD has pointed in a direction . ( Thanks ).
    Switch has sounded caution . ( Thanks ).
    VocalNeal makes me feel slobby . ( Thanks for that too !!!! ).

    Regards to you all.

    Korat Knee Problems are a little-known pestilence upon life .

    Well my life at least.

    Chachoengsao Knee Problems are no laughing matter either.

    My father was a pharmacist, so I grew up with pharmacy. As I previously suggested : try them for two days and see if they break the cycle. They're not going to kill you or give you a stroke in two days !

    Oh, and in line with what Vocalneal said, please look up the adverse effects of Ibuprofen, Asprin and Paracetamol......all very common.

    Then apply your sense of proportion.

    And of course stop taking Celebrex in the rare event that you have an adverse reaction.....as you would do with any medication.

    I'll be very interested to hear if it fixes your back when you next get that pain.

    It was a pleasure to meet you and Missy and Lady Pig. I hope you have a safe trip home and get to appreciate Thailands lovely warm weather when you step back into the icebox. Pity I won't have the chance to say goodbye in person.
    Now I know where to find you here in Thailand let me know if you make a trip back again and we can catch up again.
    Cheers.

    As it happens there is a report in the news today about people with high blood pressure suffering adverse effects from medication .
    The report said there is no real difference between Celebrex and Ibuprofen . Yet people take Ibuprofen ( Neurofen ) freely !
    With both medications 1 person out of 300 will likely get enhanced probability of heart attack if they already have high blood pressure .

    And I pop Ibuprofen whenever I get a headache .
    Which is every day . Damn that Leo.

    Weird really to meet the face behind the avatar .

    I wanted to make a big decision on this trip and I did make the decision .
    Thailand is simply not for me .

    If you graph my life in England it's a pretty steady line and its in the comfy zone .
    In Thailand the graph goes up to peaks and down below zero . An interesting way to live and the peaks are good but the downs are too much .
    Extremely unlikely that I'll be back for any reason .

    All Good Wishes to you oots !

    Thank you Bee Bee .

    In all fairness .... within 10 minutes of ever starting to read Teakdoor there were warnings from people - saying you don't marry a Thai lady . You marry the whole family .
    And I know it's true . That you have to accept that . But I do not accept it .

    Guys have tried to evade the problem by buying land a good distance away and building a new place that is clearly for them alone .
    But I think that usually this must be a bit hard on the Thai wife . Most Thai women seem to need a walk around and two hours of fruitless gossip plus the endless wanderings in and out. We still have the old Lady Pig being a massive pain in the armpit but she thinks nothing of wandering in here and taking various foods from various trees . Missy speaks to her and then wanders off to ask anyone at all " Benn Eye ? " .

    And there's another angle to not wanting to build a new place away from family . The second warning you get in these threads is the warning about spending loads of on a place you can't own . I have made a point of not being in a position where I could be wiped out financially . It happens . It happened to my friend .

    Another pal has managed to produce a 3rd damaging scenario .
    As always his wife wanted him to spend some money improving the family house . A hundred thousand Baht would have done it . Easily . Cooler roof and internet .
    But he went nuts .
    Rebuilt the whole thing to his German standards . Mosaics in the bathroom . A separate section within the house for them . 3 Million Baht spent . And he found she was always in the other part with the rumbustious family watching dubbed Chinese movies with the volume at 15 !

    So now ....... worst of all worlds ........ he's buying land 15km away and saving to build another house !! Leaving the Thais with a 3 Million Baht house that they didn't ever want and which they don't look after now !

    Me --- I want a fence and a gate and more say about when and if people are coming and disturbing me. Not an Indolent Brother who at 31 years of age simply refuses to work and hangs around all day. And a daughter who has also decided work sucks so she occupies a room now with her boyfriend and neither of them works .
    Still finding the time to eat and drink through Missy's money though .
    They too love shit dubbed Indian and Chinese movies with the volume set at the regulated 15 and regular patrols sent out to check out the fridge contents.

    No - this marrying the family is not to my taste .

    Very Best Regards my friend !
