Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board


I woke up in the middle of the night last night with extreme back and stomach pain. I was in the bathroom for a good half hour because I was so extremely nauseous. I broke into a cold sweat, my temp went down to 95.4 and I could barely do anything. It even took me forever to manage to take some ibuprofen. I couldn't have even drove myself to the hospital if I needed to. Has anyone ever experienced this before?

Thanks,
Cheryl

Cheryl, Have you ever had problems with your pancreas? It maybe pancreatitis...there is acute pancreatitis and chronic. You definitely should
document how you felt include all of the symtpoms, your temperature, where the pain started and radiated it, the duration of the event, etc. It is important so the doctor can make an accurate diagnosis.

Feel better.

Hi and thanks for your replies.

Sorry I haven't written back, I've been in the hospital for a few days. For my stomach thing. Course when my stomach hurts that bad, my back does too. They still haven't diagnosed it and I am still not eating anything. It hurts too much. So anyhow, I missed my second steroid injection in my back because of this. I think I need to get my stomach taken care of before my back. BUT, the hospital told me NOT to take any ibuprofen, ANY type of NSAIDs. This is what I take most of the time for my backpain. Any suggestions? Also, thanks so much for caring about how I'm doing!
