Man do I miss my Advil!! :) I too took alot of Advil for various aches and pains until I realized that it was a major no no in which my GI never told me! grr.....In fact, last week I was telling my MIL that I would do anything to be able to take Advil again for my back and neck. Who knows...maybe if and when I ever have the ole colon yanked I can get back on it :) But as for menstrual pain, I agree - you just have to read the ingredients and make sure that it doesn't have any anti-inflammatories. I used to get HORRIBLE gut wrenching, down for a 2 day count, hot pry bar trying to tear my hips apart type menstrual cramps and the only thing that even remotely touched it was Darvocet and heating pads. I am so glad those days are over! I had an endometrial ablation last October and haven't had a period since. I am in heaven when it comes to that now!
