Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board


I had the sacroilac go out on me once, a couple of years ago. All I did was pull the sheets up on the bed while making it. I did get x-rays and went to an orthopedic doctor. He confirmed what it was and said it would go away in time, I took Ibuprofen 800mg for it. It was a real pain to walk. It hurt really bad trying to sit down, but after sitting down I was O.K., then trying to get up was another pain. This lasted 2 months, it did finally go away. I feel the pain for you!

Hi Ashlymichele, Do you have kids? The orthopedic doc told me it was from having kids and those bones sometimes just wear out. I have taken predisone, but not for this. I have not taken anything but ibuprofen, maybe you need to double up on your advil, it can't hurt you, you might be just a bit more sleepy, and of course take it with food or milk, always coat you tummy first. I know this pain can be horrible, I could barely walk sometimes, the pain went from my tush all the way down my leg. I think you just have to give it time and becareful what you do. Not sure about PT, it sounds like it might help, but again, I would be very careful of what you do.
