Avatar f tn Have you been using aspirin for the past four years? If you have been taking the medication, its unlikely that you may develop an allergic reaction now. In general, reactions to aspirin are common. If you have an aspirin allergy or sensitivity, you may also have a reaction to other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) and naproxen (Aleve, others).
Avatar m tn Please do not ignore it and consult an orthopedic specialist. Rest, application of ice, and anti-inflammatory medicines such as aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen may help. However without examination of your shoulder, it is difficult to comment. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn Many individuals are allergic to aspirin and many of those will cross-react to Motrin® (ibuprofen) or similar drug in the same way they would react to aspirin. You were fortunate that Benadryl® (diphenhydramine) was effective in curbing this attack. You should not take aspirin, Motrin® (ibuprofen) or any of the other so-called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) like Motrin® (ibuprofen) since the likelihood of a recurrence is high.

Avatar n tn For myself, I always have a problem with the change from summer to fall. Probably mold spores or the like? For a week I will have traveling swelling. Every morning I will wake up swollen somewhere, groin, cheek, lip, eyelid, tongue, soles of feet. The scary ones are waking up choking on that thing that hangs down in the back of my throat or waking up with what feels like cramps around my lungs. I breath ok, but it feels like cramps or spasms. Real weird.

Avatar m tn For a little more than a month now I've had swelling on the left side of my throat and face with periodic pain and numbness. I can feel a fairly large lump (like a swollen lymph gland) in my throat but I don't have a sore throat, just the swelling and pain. The numbness and tingling is moving up into the left side of my face now too. I also get wicked migraine headaches almost everyday and just feel lousy in general.

This approach to therapy is the foundation upon which I build for any woman with recurrent early pregnancy loss.
Avatar f tn Hi, Yes, some people might develop allergic reactions in the form of facial swelling, hives, asthma, breathing difficulty, shock etc with use of ibuprofen. Most commonly there is aspirin allergy noticed in coincidence with allergy to ibuprofen. Asprin belongs to salicylate group while ibuprofen belongs to NSAID’s group. It does not mean that allergy will occur to every compound of that group.

Avatar n tn It feels like a bruise inside of my lower right abdomen. My doc says it's just scar tissue and to take ibuprofen or aspirin for the discomfort.

Avatar m tn Generally bicep tear (both partial and complete) is treated conservatively with rest (use arm minimally), application of ice, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory such as thylenol, ibuprofen, aspirin, or naproxen. After the pain and swelling subsides, physical therapy is started. Generally this causes full recovery. Surgery is rarely required. Yes, with adequate physical therapy you should be able to play golf after a few weeks. Take care!
