Back Problems board

Joe-I have that also, but think it is from the ibuprofen. Getting to a point when I eat that food hurts when it gets to a certain spot. And then it just churns, sometimes that stops and sometimes I have to throw up. Doc gave me a pill I take half hour before eating and it doesn't help. Specialist gave me nexium but still waiting on mail order script to be delivered, so am not taking any ibuprofen until it arrives. Seems anything I take now makes it flare up.
