Yes


Tylenol is usually adequate for a post concussion headache. I prefer it to NSAIDs like Advil. Sometimes, I see patients with bleeding around the brain after a concussion. Advil can make this worse.

Headaches that started with a concussion 2 years ago. They can be relieved with Aleve but never seem to really go away.

No, not early on


It is typically not recommended to take NSAIDs, of which Aleve is one, in the early stages of concussion. This is because of the small but significant risk of bleeding that occurs with NSAID use and the possibility that there may be more of an injury to the brain (a bleed from a vessel injury) than just concussion. Tylenol is preferred as it is not an NSAID.

May be several thing


There are many possible causes although it sounds like possible tendinitis or bursitis of the elbow. It depends on whether the pain is present at rest or with activity and if there are particular activities that cause the pain. With no history of trauma best to see an orthopedist or rheumatologist

I have De Quervain's on my writing hand. NSAID (Naproxen) didn't work... Very painful...Should I ask for leave from work to rest it? I'm a secretary.

No


Naprosyn and other NSAIDs virtually never work for this issue. Local cortisone injection often provides a fast cure. For resistant cases there is a simple surgical procedure.

It is not uncommon to have cramping after a biopsy. You may also have bloody discharge. Any non-asperin (you don't want to inhibit clotting) pain medication or anti-inflammatory (NSAID) would be fine.

Have your son! Very important. Apart from your cramping you did not specify other alterations in your periods. Talk to your doc about this with more detail! Best.
