I'm sorry to sort of repeat another post I did. I'm really at my wits end. Many of us appreciate how hard it is to get off PPIs. I did it several years ago, and I'm so happy I did. But now I have another problem I have to get through. I had knee arthroscopy last week and I don't know if it's because I have fibromyalgia, or because I haven't taken the NSAIDS, but I'm in so much pain all the time because of my knee. I hobble around, and now I'm getting lots of pains elsewhere, because I'm hobbling so much.
I've called the doc's office for a stronger pain med, but I'm thinking of doing something else. I'm thinking of going back on a PPI, in order to take the NSAIDS. I'd like to be on them for at least a week or 2.
Have any of you ever been back on PPIs temporarily, in order to get through another situation (like taking NSAIDS)? I just hate "regressing" and going back on the PPIs, but I'm thinking if I can take the NSAIDS, I can get out of some of this pain. But gosh I hate what I might have to go through, to come off it again. Any insights?? Thanks.
