 1  Back muscle and shoulder pain Went to the doctor for back muscle pain that was radiating to my shoulder and front chest. Physicians Assistant laughed at me when I said I wanted an x-ray. She gave me a prescription for naproxen 250mg twice a day and also a muscle relaxer called Baclofen 10mg three times a day. I took both the first day and the pain immediately went away. I took them again that evening and I started getting an upset stomach and nausea. That night at bedtime, I was in full blown stomach cramps (felt like child labor). The cramps were combined with spasms and I had diarrhea all night. The spasms and stomach cramps didn't go away either. It's now morning and the cramping is still happening. I now have to wait until the medication gets out of my system. I am not taking either medication anymore. The pain immediately came back but I don't care. The cramping is worse than the back pain. I looked up the side effects for both medications and they are horrible. Not worth it. I do not trust the medications doc F 57 1 days

 1  sacroiliac joint pain The doctor gave these with lansoprazole. Took one in the morning. By mid afternoon I was able to walk with an aid, but only to the toilet as by this time I had severe diarrhea. Took a whole box of immodium to try and stop it to no effect. Took one more dose of naproxen. Back to the loo for a few more hours! It was great being able to walk, however not much good if the only place you can walk to is the toilet. !! F 50 1 days

 1  Arthritis Severe chest pains, headaches, lightheaded, indigestion, belching, ringing in ears, anxiety, extreme tiredness, constipation, extreme tightness in chest. Stopped taking the drug after third day as the inflammation to my right knee had gone away. Then began to suffer with the symptoms described. Pain in chest progressively got worse over the next few days, eventually ended up in A&E with a suspected heart attack! I am now nine days on from taking them and things are still not right. Still got most of the symptoms but they have begun to ease. It was only after going to hospital that I began to wonder if Naproxen might be the cause, and after reading on the web about all the side effects I am now convinced that this is the cause. I am now waiting to see if and how long it will take for my body to recover, reading some of the comments from other users, I am very worried that some of them might be permanent. M 61 3 days

NAPROSYN  (NAPROXEN):  See also Warning section. Naproxen is used to relieve pain from various conditions such as headache, muscle aches, tendonitis, dental pain, and menstrual cramps. It also reduces pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by arthritis, bursitis, and gout attacks. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
