Hi Anita

I think it would be a good idea to go to either a rheumatologist or an orthopaedic specialist. There are other types of (new) anti-inflammatory meds that might be safer for you to use, but I would suggest seeing one of the above mentioned specialists first. If necessary, they will be able to refer you to a physiotherapist. Good luck.
