16 year old girl is having severe lower stomach pain off and on, so bad it buckles her over in tears. Er gave her vicodin (500mg) and ibuprofen on 3/29 for four days didn't help hardly at all. The only thing that seems to help is a warm bath. Heating pad
Abdominal : Abdominal pain is a very complicated symptom. Often, the er is able to make sure it is not caused by something dangerous and in need of emergent care, but rarely are they able to diagnose the problem after that. Still, you did the right thing by taking her to the er with pain that severe. You should call her doctor for an evaluation.

I got a really bad sunburn 4 days ago & my feet & ankles are still swollen. I'm using aloe gel & taking ibuprofen, anything more I should be doing?
Aloe: I agree w dr. Miller. Just to let you know - aloe products usually need to contain at least 90% aloe for the aloe to do it's work. Very few products on the market have this concentration.

If your taking the Ibuprofen for pain, you don't need such a high dose-400mg 3 times per day will be equally effective. The 800 mg dose is for treating inflammation from, for example, arthritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Would taking 1000mg of ibuprofen everyday be bad? After how long would it be considered unhealthy?
Ibuprofen: 1000 mgm of ibuprofen/day should not cause you any problems. The upper limit of ibuprofen/day should be no greater than 2000 mgm/day and certainly above 3000mgm/day is a real risk for liver damage. The real question is why are you taking the ibuprofen on a daily basis. That problem may need to be looked into by your physician. If the ibuprofen at 1000mgm/day is causing stomach issues stop it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
