Bmshurt.....yes, because it has no effect on my UC at all. I do get more bruising, however, if i've used it more than a day or so.
I don't take ibuprophen since a hysterectomy in '92 (I took it for period cramping..worked like a charm).
I don't take naproxen because it affects my asthma.
Tylenol doesn't even touch my headaches. He's not concerned because my c-scopes have been A-OK...as well, my UC and PSC are in a nice non-inflamed state. I heal well, and my blood clotting is good. Plus, I've had the same GI for coming on 19 years in January.
Oh, I've taken aspirin since I was 11 years old after I fell causing whiplash that resulted in wry neck and a lifetime of tension headaches.
The one symptom I get from it is more ringing in my ears...which is probably caused from the aspirin use for so long. I'm 53.....and from my perspective...salicylates are a miracle for me. Thankfully.
I do see a chiro for my neck, and that's resulted in less headaches. I use Tylenol for body pains. It's a nice juggle of "line 'em up" so that I function as best as possible.
