Can't Win For Losin'

Well, had a more of a down day today.  Frustrated.  Sore.  Just when I think I'm starting to get better, I get worse.  If I take the Naproxen (NSAID), it increases upset stomach, if I don't, I get achy and sore and cranky.  With my already-IBS, it's too much.  Do I live with the pain or do I live with not being able to leave the house because I'm too sick?

Just sayin'.

I say live with the pain. Have you tried Arnica Gel? I swear by it.

Per Wiki,

"When used topically in a gel, Arnica was found to have the same effect as the use of NSAIDs (ibuprofen) in treating the symptoms of hand osteoarthritis."
