I get bad cramps... so I take Aleve. Its the only thing that works for me. Now they say it causes heart attack and whatever else! I just got this Tylenol menstrual relief stuff... ehhh... its NOT working AT ALL! I HATE this! What am i gonna do... I've tried all types of things in the past and only Aleve works! Why did they have to announce their findings yesterday???? Why couldnt they wait until after this week, now that its THAT time again!!???

Have you tried midol? I never used BC powder or Goodies for cramps but shoot, it kills my headaches/migraines most of the time. Advil use to work on me, but it doesnt have any effect on me anymore. Is it Aleve that causes a higher risk for heart attacks or is it the naproxen itself? Is it called naproxen? I think I may be missing a few letters but, oh well. I ain't no doctor
.

Or a heating pad? I use to have horrible tummy pains that would wake me up in the middle of a deep sleep. I had this massager that heats up too. Oh it felt so much better. Also, exercise and stretching should help relieve cramps in the long run.

So sorry for ya. I feel ya. I feel ya RIGHT NOW! LOL

It is the naxo... ingredient but as along as you don't take for, longer than 10 days and no more than the amount per day as directed... But I think if you can, take as less of it as you can. Have you tried Motrin?

I know what you are feeling...they took away my Vioxx!
I need it for my knee and the ankle that I broke this spring. Nothing works as well...I tried the Bextra and it isn't as effective but even now, they are investigating that. I say, everything has a risk and just take it as needed....they did that w/ the Dimetapp a few years ago, if there is ANY risk that they see someone could sue for, they'll pull it. It's sad...

Aleve (or the walmart equate brand) he he...is the only think that kicks my bad headaches. I would say that as long as you only take the recommended dose when needed, then it should be ok.
Unless they pull it off the shelf, I am not going to stop taking it.
It is good stuff!

I get really bad cramps and migraines too and I take Aleeve or Anaprox (a stronger dose) for both. I just went to the neurologist and she gave me Celebrex to take for 2 weeks for "ice pick" headaches but I had to stop taking that too.

What is going on with all these medicines...don't they test them before going into the market? Now I'm stuck with nothing that works. I take imitrex for the migraines but what about my cramps and the "ice pick" headaches.

This sucks! :new_Eyecrazy:

i know what you're feeling.

i would know i would have my period because i would always wake up at 5 am, with lower back pain and then having horrible stomach cramps. i would sit on the toilet for about an hour(it helped..i dont know why) and then i would get that nauseous feeling.

i would get the saliva building up in my mouth...and it tastes funny. and then i would start gagging. i would splash my face with water...didnt work.


the only thing that would relieve my pain---i HAD to throw up. so i would stand there (i never put my finger or anything down my throat)...but i would think about how i felt sick...and then i would throw up. and i would feel a little better, take 4 tylenols and then lay down with a sleeping pad.


I HAVENT HAD THAT FEELING IN 2 YEARS!!!!! honestly...think about going on birth control or something. there's even a pill where you only get your period every 3 months or something.

im on depo-provera and i just get a shot every 3 months and i dont get my period. there's the spotting for the first year. but there is absolutely no pain at all.

I know, it's been hard coping without it.. with the cold weather we've been having my knees have been in agony.. but I guess I'd rather have knee pain than a heart attack. :new_Eyecrazy:

I was told that ibuprofen (sp?) helps reduce swelling so amybe that might help with some headaches and knee pain?
I've been getting bad headaches and sometimes nothing helps!It gets bad that I just want to lie down and sleep. I was told that its a migraine but i don't get the sesitivity to light or nausea.
I think I might buy the Motrin Migarine to try.

With migraines, you don't always get the light sensitivity or nausea, so it might still be a migraine, especially if lying down and sleeping helps it. I've found that Excedrin Migraine does a decent job of helping my headaches.. it's not super fast, but if you take 2 and then take a nap, typically it will go away by the time you wake up.

I love Aleve
I won't stop taking it. I take it when I get head colds...I can't think without taking one. I once took two Aleve, by accident, and within an hour, my entire body, and brain, felt NUMB!!!
Felt good though. I used it last night. I am seriously sick and stressed, but it works. I agree, use it in moderation when you need to, and if you do not have a risk of heart attacks.
