Is there something that you can take that will help more with pain when it gets worse?
Leosha and All,
If you are not allergic to any of the following, they are worth trying. Do not take the aspirin and the ibuprofin at the same time. You can take one of them along with the other two items. I would try SAMe alone (except for calcium) first to see if it works without having to resort to aspirin or ibuprofin. If SAMe doesn't work, then try aspirin or ibuprofin (along with calcium).
1. aspirin, take as directed on the label
2. ibuprofin (Advil), take as directed on the label
3. SAMe, Nature Made brand or enteric-coated generic, take as directed on the label. You will find SAMe in the vitamin/mineral herbal remedies section of your drug store or grocery. It works for arthritic joints. Maybe it will work for bones. If you buy generic, make sure it's enteric-coated or you will get a terrible stomach ache. I speak from experience.
4. It wouldn't hurt to take a calcium supplement especially if you don't drink a lot of milk. If you're over 50, you positively should be taking calcium. Even men can get osteoporosis.
