you never know, I was always fine taking aleve and advil when I was dx'd w/proctosigmoiditis, I took it monthly for my menstrual cramps. After my major flare on 10/07 I have not taken any of it and I took 2 tablets of aspirin for two days and went into a flare, this is after my dx of pancolitis.
I had never in my life taken aspirin before, so who knows, maybe i'd be ok w/advil again but I will never try it.......only b/c of my experiences
Why did I take the aspirin? My other Doc told me to and honestly, I never gave it a second thought b/c I had never taken it before and for some reason it just did not 'click' I know not to take it.
Hope you will be ok, not sure if my post was helpful.
