Is there really no solution for a chronic pain sufferer (back,shoulder and neck pain)who was on NSAID for 26 years. Had heart attack and 4 stents, now allowed NO NSAIDs. Quality of life is suffering more with the pain than the HA. Diclofenec was the most successful of the anti inflammatory s but I have been told Naproxen is the best for cardiac px's.
Currently using topical gels with paracetamol, the TV adverts are wrong!!! No use at all especially as can only use twice a day.
Before my heart attack very active, golf, cycling, walking now struggling to do anymore than the rehab classes. Anybody know any different options. Had traction, acupuncture, tens machine and osteopath. Not even allowed large quantities of alcohol to numb the pain as detrimental to heart drugs.
