I take them, even though I know they can be bad. Since Remicade they do not affect my gut. I took big doses of Aleve, all summer, because of painful tendonitis affecting my daily games of golf. I use lots of ice too, but Aleve works best.
the spasming, I know that is painful! You will never take the ability to pick up something off the floor for granted again!
Whatever you do, use ICE, every hour.
