Advil and Tylenol guidance requested

Posted by john1956 @john1956, Feb 3, 2020

My 1st day of posting and have to say this is an amazing website. So i have some strange stabbing pain below my right hip (not the hip or Bursa) that comes from inside that takes me over with pain. Both Advil and Tylenol work but as this has been 5 months of switching back and forth each day so i don't take to much of anything i'm now feeling stomach issues…. I would appreciate your real world remedies. I'm not listing all the attempts to address the actual problem as i think that's better addressed in another group. thanks


@vklittle61 You are welcome. I am sorry I was so wordy I get that way when I am very tired. I forgot to mention one other thing I do to help with pain. This will only help if you are side sleeper .. put a pillow between your knees. It will seem awkward at first; eventually if you tend to turn from one side to other you will not even notice the pillow. I use an old standard poly stuffed pillow. I prefer the pillow go from between knees down to between my ankles. My first pillow was a travel size pillow and went just between my knees. I started using a pillow after a knee surgery.. my kneecap had gone out of place.. and the physical therapist suggested the pillow. It does help with the back and butt pain. If you sleep on your back getting rid of your head pillow and tucking a pillow under your knees will help. I used to be able to sleep on my back some and I would just flip the pillow up when sleeping on my back and then flip it down when I turned on my side and my pillow would go back between my knees. I got to where I did not even wake up during sleep doing it.

I am still very tired . sorry.

Thank you so much sweetheart for your input I really appreciate it I will try this. My physical therapist also told me to sleep with a pillow between my legs so I’m going to try it and then I’m going to try the no pillow under my head and the other thing you said about that
