    I have some arthritis in both arms its knocks the wind out me sometimes. Maybe rode a motorcycle to long i do not know and been out in elements or probably just getting old. Its really messed up my Guitar playing Can not play it for to long anymore.

    My question I have an abscess above a tooth. I am taking Asda's Long lasting pain relief Ibuprofen which last 12 hours and is very good. How come these pills can knock out the excreting pain of a abscess. But dose nothing for the pain in my arms. How dose this work i am again intruiged.

    Any doctors or nurses on here Tell me please.

    I'm no doc, but I believe pain killers effect the blood flow and not grinding bones. Amputation, morphine or copious amounts of vodka may do the trick of ridding some athritic pains; but again I'm no doc.

    I have arthritus and take high strength co-codamol tablets (only available on prescription) they definitely do the trick :smashin:

    Snag is after I have taken them I just sit in a chair with a daft expression on my face.

    I bet I could make a fortune selling them down town on Friday night :D:D

    I use codrodamol [sp?] and that kills all pain [and everything else] dead within 30 minutes. I would suggest you head to your doctors and see what they say. Mine are anti inflammatory too so that helps with alot of issues.

    Get the advice of a health professional though, you need something specific to your needs.

    Think so - the ones I take are the generic ones prescribed by the NHS to save money.

    Bit like Panadol and paracetamol

    Dont buy Asda 12 hour long crap, its basically 400mg of Ibuprofern per tablet, buy a cheaper brand and double the dose and save some pennies.

    Ibuprofen is basically an Anti-Inflamatory, it help reduce the swelling and pain around the abscess, while reducing your body temp etc

    You can use paracetamol based products as well while using Ibup.
    for arthritic problems see the doc who will probably prescribe a codeine based pain killer to help.

    Not from co-codamol you want :rotfl:

    Maybe Dihydrocodeine or one of the synthetics like Tramadol

    Yeah, Ibuprofen causes the Gatric problems, which is why it will should never be taken by any ulcer sufferer.

    OP, Check on the web for use of NSAIDs and there side effects

    I don't know - I seem to get a much better high from the co-codamol than I did with the Tramadol :D:D

    Get it properly looked at by a doctor. There are loads of treatments now that can have real benefit. NSAID (ibuprofen etc) can be effective but you need a proper diagnosis and treatment. My doctor always chucks me out when I ask her if PCM from my PS3 is better than pure bitstream output to the amp. ;) Any self respecting quack won't come on here and tell you what to do. I know it sounds sniffy but it's true.

    you have to be carefull using nsaid`s (non steriodal anti inflamatory drugs) ibuprofen,diclofenic(voltarol) as they dont really agree with people after taking them,they really dont agree with your insides which is something you really dont want or need trust me, go see your gp there are other areas that really need looking at with regards to this maybe a trip to a specialist via your gp a course of injections if it gets any worse could be a better option instead of ramming tablets down your throat as it doesn`t sound like arthritic problems as such.
    if the injections work which for a lot of people they do you would only need the injections once every couple of months go see your gp

    as for the abcess you need some antibiotics

    The forums have repeatedly said previously that this is NOT the correct area to be receiving "medical" advice from.

    Any such questions should be directed to your local GP.

    Also,as has been pointed out,anti-inflammatories have a complex list of interactions and potentially serious side effects.
    Combining drugs is also potentially dangerous in some groups.

    Closing.
