Default Anti inflammatorys

Guys I take one Aleve once a day . Also goes by Naproxen . I use the gels,and only take one after a meal, plus drink at least 250 ml of water .Also make sure I donít take one and lay down .
Stomach is still giving me issues ,and was interested if anyone knows of a substitute?

I tried omega 3ís once . It worked so well it was practically a miracle . But it only worked for one day than never did anything again . As a matter of fact Iíve gone allergic to it now , throat swelling and body rashes . Canít even eat store bought eggs that have omega 3 .
So Iím looking for any other remedies for an anti inflammatory that some here may have had success with .
I donít really think thereís many options out there though .

My problem is tendonitis,especially in my knees and arms . The difference is night and day if I take an Aleve .
I also get extremely stiff after doing my daily 2 mile walk . If I wasnít active I wouldnít need an anti inflammatory, but I hate to roll over just yet

Rick, option 1;
walk 500 yards instead of 3500.
option 2;
for my worn out joints I take something called PEROFEN, which is mainly 600 mg of ibruprofen, pink lozenge shaped.
Works well for me, but then again I only walk to the beer fridge and back.

For stomach, the best stuff I have found to settle it, is fruit flavored Tums. Works quickly, actually works, and tastes good.

I try to stay away from meds if I possibly can, and find that meditation often helps me more than prescribed meds, not always, but at times. For loosening up I use Jogging In A jug. There are all kinds of recipes on-line for this, most with just minor differences. I use 2 quarts of pure red grape juice, 2 quarts of pure apple juice, 2 cups of honey, and 2 cups of apple cider vinegar. Used to take a spoonful of apple cider vinegar a day; it worked, but took about 6 weeks to start kicking in, and I often forgot to take it. Heard about Jogging In A Jug, decided on this recipe, and been using it every since. I think the cider is the actual working ingredient, use the honey to cut a bit of the cider taste, however honey has healing properties too, and the grape and apple juices certainly can't hurt. Keep in the fridge, take a mouthful daily, took about 6 days to start kicking in for me, and has loosened me up considerably, compared to how I was. Arthritis of the spine, and for years had to use a sock butler to put on my socks; now I can put them on without it. I understand that it will not work for every one, but some people it does. Tastes pretty good, if a kid drinks it no worry about it killing them. Tons of recipes on-line, so you won't have to follow mine.

And here is the history of Jogging In A Jug's origins. http://sfsbm.org/wiki2/index.php?tit...ug%22_Beverage

I don't guarantee it will work, but figure it's worth a shot. All I can say is, it did work for me.

I've had a few episodes of elbow tendinitis over the years. My doctor recommended a brace like this:


He said the it forces the tendons and muscles to work together. It's taken anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks to see a positive change.

It's the only thing that works for me. My neighbor, a head nurse at a trauma center, tried it and she couldn't believe how well it works. Give it a try!

The Tendonitis diagnosis sounds a bit strange. Doesn't generalized Tendonitis over most of your body strike you as being highly unlikely?

What Bob said!
"Adequate rest is crucial. Returning too soon to the activity that caused the injury can lead to chronic overuse tendinopathy or torn tendons."
Your Dr. has ruled out Arthritis and/or Parkinson's?


This can't hurt (pun intended)...

Rick: do you ask your doctor about mortise and tenon joints, or hand cut dovetails? Why would you try to get medical advice on a woodworking/router forum?

If you are having issues, go see a doctor - that's my best advice for you

NSAIDS like Aleve are meant to be taken with food. Have you tried that?

That which has been said by (STICK) is right on target. This helps arthritis a great deal. However, even eating in this manner, my hands hurt at times. So I now take a prescription. Some or many may have heard of it (Tramadol). This is such a great help to me. I take two in the morning early and two at night right at bed time. I have great relief in all my joints and such with this. It is not expensive and it works. If there are side affects and I am sure there are, i have none that I know of yet. The Diet is a real key to arthritis. I cannot say about tendinitis.
None of us want to take meds. But at my age, I am damn glad to have the relief over the pain. Good luck with whatever works, use it.
