I suffered terrible back pain for many years but successfully kept it under control using NSAIDS, namely meloxicam intermittently plus Omneprazole daily to protect against ulcers. But when I developed AF I was put on Warfarin and told not to take any more and told to take up to 2000mg .. acetaminophen But it gives me insufficient relief. The pain makes me feel that its relief is more important than protecting myself against strokes. In my case although I have AF it has been symptomless, but I guess that because I have other heart problems that my cardiologist has kept me on wafariin.
I am 85 and probably dont have much time left, so why should I liv3 in pain so as just to avoid a possible str4oke
