Hi ,i was wondering how long it takes people for swelling (both knees in my case) to go fully down when taking naproxen.
I have been taking 500mg per day split in two ,morning and then 12 hours later for the last nearly four days .
I am finding it is working to some degree but its taking a very long time to see any significant difference.
Today i have been shuffling around very slowly and painfully without crutches for the first time in a week or so.
I am still in a lot of discomfort but not the same overwhealming tearful pain.
I really dont want to be taking this stuff for too long,As i was already taking the lowest dose of ibuprofen for a good 2-3 weeks before hand ,but am worried everything will just swell back up again if i attempt to stop when / if im able to walk again.
I have rheumatology in a week or so,But untill then i still dont really know whats wrong with me.
Just wondering what your experiences are with these NSAIDS .
