Nonsteroidal Anti Inflammatory Gel Finger
I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?
Loaded...: You need to discuss your current medication regimen with a Nephrologist (kidney specialist) or qualified Internist or Family Physician. The Lamictal may be causing aches and pains in and of itself. And it may also affect kidney function. I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If aspirin is anti-inflammatory, why doesn't it lower CRP blood levels? Or does it? What about other NSAIDS? Thx
One or the other: It`s unnecessary and not advisable. Oral NASAIDS get into most tissues-local sprays are local but with some small systemic absorption. Don`t do both. ...Read more
Nearly fainted and accidentally burned my finger in 350 degree oven. Can't take nsaids. Hurts crazy w/o ice. Is it ok to apply ice continuously on it?
Yes, 20 minutes: Yes, for up to 20 minutes. The most important question: is there just redness or is there blistering or is it pale and leathery? If only redness or blistering, applying an antibiotic ointment or aloe should be soothing. Leathery full thinness or 3rd degree burns require medical attention. ...Read more
Are all nsaids drugs forbidden when kidneys are damaged with chronic kidney disease, meaning that only corticoid might be given against inflammatory ?
It depends: I see that you have both polycystic kidney disease and an enthesopathy, the latter being an illness for which the nsaids are extremely valuable. I have little use for "cookbook medicine" ("people with ___ can't take ___"). Your physician will explain the risks and benefits (relief from pain, you must stay well-hydrated) to using nsaids in our situation. ...Read more
I have a pinched nerve that send pain down my arm to my fingers. Is there anything I can do to "calm it down" until my doctor appt? I take NSAIDS. Thx
Neck pain: A herniated disc in the neck will cause radiating arm pain, weakness and numbness. Physical therapy and chiropractic care can help to reduce the pain. Cervical traction and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is also helpful. A Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack or neuropathic pain medicines like Gabapentin (Neurontin) can calm the nerve down. ...Read more

Orthopedic surgeon foundbone spurs both hips&possible labral tear,MRI scheduled in2weeks.tried 3 diff NSAIDs,patches,voltaren (diclofenac) gel. Pain is unbeararabl?
MRI very important: Sorry you are having such severe pain. Possibly MRI could be scheduled sooner. It will be very helpful for diagnosing the exact injury and help Orthopedist decide whether surgery indicated. Contact your doctor regarding the severity of the pain and perhaps a stronger med can be prescribed pending the workup. Don't mix NSAID's . Only take one type in 24 hr period, or risk of ulcers increases. ...Read more
