Thank you everyone for sharing their thoughts and experiences.
Due to taking Nexium for so many years, my liver and kidneys are damaged (my liver almost stopped producing bile) so taking NSAIDs would cause additional damage. Though, I'm taking Intenzyme Forte
(20 to 30 per day on an empty stomach; 10 at a time), and Legaplex I
(2 per meal; six a day) as natural supplements -- naturopathic / homeopathic -- which is doing the same end result of NAIDs without causing further damage to my digestive system. Of note, the naturopathic method takes longer; it took about 10 days before they really started helping; but the benefit is that no systems are damaged.
Thank you for suggesting acupuncture. Also, has anyone with these or similar issues tried a chiropractor? If yes, how did that work out?
, thank you for your service to our country. I agree on technique (though I still need to learn that part extensively).
Thank you all again.
