I have damage to my lower back, groin & thigh, got nerve root block which made it worse. The pain is horrible, I took 600mg of ibuprofen & after awhile it felt better but my blood pressure went up high. I know it's the inflamation affecting the nerves, is there anything else I can take for inflamation that won't affect my BP? Thanks
I am recovering from shoulder surgery and it is amazing how much the Mueller Ice Packs from Wal-Mart reduce the pain. You can use ice in a plastic bag wrapped in a towel also. I like the convenience of the ice packs.
Your physician can let you know what is safe for high blood pressure and inflammation. Either that or a pharmacist. Tylenol/acetopminophen is not an anti-inflammatory. The over the counter anti-inflammatories are Advil (ibuprofen), Aleve (naproxen), and Aspirin.
