My go to pain reliever has always been aspirin.
Yeah, this thread is weird. The docs on it seem to be treating ibuprofen like a horrible risk.

Yet my two different OS and a sports podiatrist don't seem nearly so alarmed about Ibuprofen and have prescribed it. It seems like a fairly ordinary tool in their tool kit.

I guess my doctors are dummies.
