  • Hello

    I can't take NSAIDs either. My doctor prescribed codeine which I take together with paracetamol which I have found brilliant. Really does work and you don't feel spaced out like when you take tramadol, hope this helps.

  • I'd love to know the answer to this too. I also can't take NSAID's either but I also and take codeine. At the moment all I can take is paracetamol :(

  • I'm the same, have a stomach ulcer that keeps flaring up because of NSAIDs . I can only take paracetamol , tramdol or codydamol , heat bags are a little help, also I've tried arnica pilletts (as they are for bruising and swelling).

  • What are blocks, ???

  • Have u tried going gluten free? Has helped me lots throughout the month.

  • Codeine is good, although it can make you a bit constipated, so I'd go a bit carefully with this. Heat bags are also great, and I also found the diet changes (no gluten or caffeine) made a difference. Good luck.
