    Anybody know a good pain killer thats aspirin free that works really good?

    I can't take aspirin they make me bleed and ibuprophen is starting to make me bleed too. But the pain I have is really bad. I'm trying to wait till Obamacare starts next year to go to the hospital. So I'm living on pain killers right now. I've taken way too many aspirins in the last few months and the bleeding gets pretty bad sometimes.

    I don't have personal experience, but there is an article at WebMD that might be helpful -
    http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-and-su...ic-pain-relief

    They discuss vitamins and supplements that might help. Do a quick Google search for natural pain relief - might find some solutions for your kind of pain.

    Here are some one is name brand the other generic it is Tylenol and caffeine no aspirin. I think CVS even has one of these. Just check the ingredients and see what is in it before buying.

    What kind of pain are you having if you don't mind me asking.

    I have infections that look like blood blisters that don't heal and are really painful. I've been told the only thing that can be done is surgery but theres no guarantee they wont come back again. Thats why I take so many pain killers. I'm hoping when Obamacare takes effect and we have insurance I can get them taken care of and hope they don't come back. I've been told anti-biotics don't seem to work on them a lot. I've tried them and they don't seem too.

    Have you been tested for celiac disease? Without seeing your "blood blisters" (and I'm not a doctor), your description reminds me of what my dad had. He would get "blood blisters" which were painful and itchy. His bed sheets would look like a massacre happened.

    Just a FYI when Obamacare kicks in it will not be cheap or free - no matter what they have said. Does your hospital have a clinic assigned to it? I know both of ours do as they are teaching hospitals and you would be seen by interns but they are supervised and the cost is very low. If it is something like Celiac you might not need surgery.

    The clinic we go to says they're not equiped to handle what I have. I'll have to go to the hospital is what my doctor says. I haven't been tested for celiac disease. I was told I have sweat gland infection which will need surgery. But I'm going to see if my doctor will test me for celiac disease. I know I'm allergic to gluten.

    Maybe go get a second opinion or at least ask your doc for something for the pain. I'm sorry you are going through this.

    That is celiac!! What is your diet like? Gluten is hidden in many items and can affect those sensitive to it in many different ways. My dad had the blood blisters, my cousins have irritable bowels, etc. Try eating a gluten free diet for a while and see if your symptoms improve. You have nothing to loose (and everything to gain) and it isn't very hard to do at all.

    The symptoms are my fault I know I eat some glutens I shouldn't. I'm going to try avoiding them and see if that helps.
