my V V,  low BP ?, bextra/celebrex

From: Rebeckah


Hi, I'm 39yo female, had 2 vv attacks in past month. felt nauseous for days leading up to it, then upon eating, a feeling of immediate fainting & trying hard not to vomit. My difference is that I went completely {temporarily} deaf. My vision was ok {but my eyes were closed thru it} I didn't pass out, but I've NEVER passed out. My blood pressure is usually 80/50. Does anybody else have low BP with this? My first episode happened after taking being on Bextra {valdecoxib} which is a cox-2 inhibitor like Celebrex for back pain. I have a lung disease, am on supplemental oxygen. I take prednisone & methotrexate. Also has anyone noticed a corelation to caffeine consumption? thanks
