So... what is a good pain reliever that doesn't hurt the stomach? I have relied on Ibuprofen for years and now am finding that it is making my stomach hurt. Any suggestions?

Body aches or headache? Excedrin works really well for headaches, but not so good for sore muscles. Some people suggest Aleve for that, although I still use ibuprofen.

Yeah Democrats! Finally!

Thanks, Tom. I have been using Ibuprofen for years -- usually just on one day a month. Ian just suggested to me that I make sure to take it with food so that it doesn't burn a hole in my stomach. Maybe that will help. : )

I have been using peppermint essential oil a lot lately, both for headaches and also muscle aches. I have found it to be more effective than Tiger Balm.
