Hmm... well I have knee pain but that's from playing sports. Other than that, I can't say that any other pain is related to taking ibuprofen...
I have cut back on the ibuprofen because I don't feel like it's doing anything. Torn discs don't really "inflame." I was taking the ibuprofen and Aleve for my arthritis, but I'm just kind of learning to deal with the pain now and only take it when necessary.
I also take acetaminophen for the pain because it's just a pain-killer, not an anti-inflammatory.
