Default Bextra/itching

I have been taking Bextra for about 6 months or more for severe back pain. The drug has given me tremendous relief from my pain. I can sleep normally again. About a month ago, I began having itchy skin on my legs, arms, hands, stomach, back and buttocks. I thought it was just dry skin and began to try different over the counter products to relieve itching. Nothing has helped and I have a few very tiny red bumps that itch. I decided to investigate the most recent drug I had added to my daily medications which was Bextra. I found a lot of information regarding skin sensitivity and other skin related problems. I am going to stop taking Bextra and contact my doctor immediately. I am miserable from this itching and skin sensitivity. I am sad that I have to discontinue this drug because it worked so well on my back pain. I might add that this drug did not begin to work on my pain until I had taken it for several months.
