I tolerate NSAIDs without bleeding or discomfort. I always take them with food. They're the only thing that works for the joint pain. A few months ago, I decided to try to stop taking the Naprosyn. By 10 that evening, I could barely walk and couldn't sit or lie down. The only relatively comfortable position was standing. I couldn't sleep or think for the pain, and my docs tell me I have a very high pain tolerance.
So yeah, I take them My GI said as long as they don't bother me, it's okay. I really do need to be able to walk.
