I broke 3 ribs after fall on sunday. Prescribed codeine, paracetamol & ibuprofen. My abdomen is very swollen now. Is this normal?

It may be, but...: Broken ribs are very painful, and the medication you were Rx'd are common for the treatment. A fall that causes 3 fractured ribs was a serious fall though, so there is always the chance you sustained some other internal injuries. If the swelling is located over the rib fractures that is most likely normal...If the swelling is unrelated to the general area of fractures, then see a Doctor. ...Read more

I've been having severe period pains! I've tried paracetamol, ibuprofen, mefenamic acid and codeine and none of them are working what can I do?

Try contraception: If you are not considering pregnancy try a long acting contraception - Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD or the Nexplanon Implant. Both may decrease the menstrual flow or even induce amenorrhea (no period). Depo provera injections every 3 months may also work. You can also try the 91 day pill which will give you about 4 periods (withdrawal bleed) per year hence you may have the pain 4 times instead of 12 or more yearly. ...Read more

Codeine, Parecetomal, ibuprofen aren't helping my menstrual cramps over the past few months. Also my period duration increased to 9 days with heavy bleeding. What can I do? Its embarassing to see a dr

See the doctor!: It is concerning that you are having heavy and prolonged bleeding with severe cramps. There could be an underlying serious condition beyond "regular" menstrual issues, and at the least you need to have your blood count and iron stores checked to make sure you are not anemic. All this can also make your postural hypotension and tachycardia worse. Keep well hydrated and see the doctor ASAP! ...Read more

Stop the med.: If you took the medicine only once, 3 days earlier, then it may not be responsible for any of your current symptoms. But if you have been continuing to take the medicine several times/day, then the caffeine may be causing palpitations, & the aspirin may be causing blood in the stool. Stop taking the medicine. If no better in 2-3 days, get it checked. Thanks. ...Read more
