Minimal Danger: Long term (weeks to months) use of painkillers can be a problem, but there is likely no great risk to using them for five days. The more concerning thing is that you are not getting better. I would advise you to see a primary care doctor to find out a diagnosis. ...Read more

Advil + Naproxen: Both of these meds are considered NSAIDS which are notorious for causing GI problems (stomach bleeding), The maximum dose of Ibuprofen is 3.2 g, and Naproxen 1.5g daily. Do the math. There are other better ways of managing pain than taking same meds-NSAIDs.
