Just a quick question
I know we can’t give medical advice but I guess I need opinions on what others do.
Does anyone take Nurofen/ ibuprofen for headaches?
I’ve been taking panadol all day every day like pre surgery but the pain is bad today and I really need to take an ibuprofen as obviously panadol does nothing really but as ibuprofen thins blood / affects clotting ability, it’s more risky “if you have a bleed”… but it does help headache massively!
Last night pain in eyes and head was very bad and I couldn’t swallow for a bit and I had tingles down my right arm
I saw normal doctor today who checked me out and said it could have been a tia or something or maybe nothing too… but I have no bad symptoms now
My doctors have generally said if I need ibuprofen, take it. But it’s just bad IF I have a bleed…
So I guess my question boils down to… do people here take ibuprofen for pain despite the risk in small chance of bleed?
