The trouble with these NSaIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflmmatory) meds is that they all increase the risk of stroke <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> other cardiovascular events, although naproxen (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>leve) is thought to be less risky. I read that diclofenac sodium (aka Voltaren) is considered one of the most toxic NSaIDs. I have found that getting more exercise helps relieve my back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andan> neck pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andan> water exercise is the best. Have you tried it? I hear tai chi is good for arthritis, too.
Bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> a big part of the problem is you anticipate the pain, so you tighten up, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> then they push against tightened muscles. also take a pain killer, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>leve or advil are good ones bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> they help with swelling, before you go.

The looser you an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> keep your jaw the less it is going to hurt. as well during the procedure as you feel yourself start to tense, repeat to yourself.
So unless your healthcare provider prescribes it, you should avoid an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takingan> aspirin altogether, as well as other NSaIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), such as ibuprofen (advil, Motrin), naproxen sodium (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>leve), <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> ketoprofen (Orudis), which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> have similar effects. Check the labels of all over-the-counter drugs to make sure they don't contain aspirin or other NSaIDs. Better yet, check with your caregiver or pharmacist.
I've found that a combination of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>leve (naproxen) <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> voltaren gel helps take the edge off of the pain. Voltaren gel is an anti-inflammatory gel that you would rub on your han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>andan>s. It contains diclofenac, a strong prescription anti-inflammatory medication. You could ask your doctor about it to see if it will help in addition to the steroid shots.
