Thank you all for your responses! It's so hard to take NSAIDs for pain when one has GERD. I am already taking 40 mg generic Prilosec daily; I hope that will be enough to counter any gastric distress, should I try a new med. Aleve upset my stomach too much. I've tried Celebrex, which did help with the pain and was easier on my stomach, but it's so expensive. (I have a 50% coinsurance for prescriptions.)
I'll keep you posted!
