 1  Migraine headaches Severe heartburn and indigestion which bored through my back. Couldn't sleep all night until later the next afternoon. Caused weakness, nausea/vomiting, disorientation, dizziness, pain, back pain, anxiety, tinnitus, fever, chills and sweats, blurred vision, pain in joints, flu-feelings, runny nose and breathlessness and the list goes on. I have pre-existing Ehlers-Danlos type 3, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, IBS and neuropathic pain, so not a well person anyway. I only took one 250mg tablet after my dinner. By bedtime (midnight) I had indigestion/heartburn, which got progressively worse (I had severe stomach and back pain). I was writhing around trying to get comfortable and couldn't. I have never felt pain like that, even surgery was less painful. The pain only eased by 2.00pm the next afternoon. I have been left, 4 days later, with blurred vision, nerve pain/shooting pains all over and joint pain.nausea, vomiting, dizziness, lack of appetite, shaking, headaches, sore eyes, sleep disturbance, weakness, stomach and bowel upset, constipation and diarrhoea, confusion, tinnitus, balance problems, runny nose, sinusitis, flu-like feelings and much more. I am seriously concerned about this drug and as someone who has underlying health problems, this has left me even more unwell. I cannot currently leave the house and have had to cancel one medical appointment. I am sensitive to drugs and foods and this was explained to my GP and no proton pump inhibitor was prescribed with it. Votarol Retard in the past made my stomach bleed, but Ibuprofen is just about tolerable. I thought it was worth trying, never realising the consequences. I hope these symptoms go as I cannot face eating and I hope I won't miss my cardiology appointment. I seriously would advise people to think carefully before they take this. F 56 1 days

 1  Arthritis Nausea & constipation (have been physically sick) breathless - tight chest & coughing Worst of all severe chills from head to toe every night. Restless sleep all night. Feeling wretched every night. The chills & other symptoms even lead me to ask for blood test for diabetes. Arthritis- not a lot of difference to plain ibuprofen ( which I can't tolerate either). After reading other symptoms I will not take any more. F 64 15 days

 1  Back pain After taking just ONE pill (After a full meal) i got the most awful painful stomach cramps, chest tightening and dizzy spells. I only got an hours sleep as the pain was too much and 24 hours later, i still feel awful. I would rather live with my back pain then ever take one of these tablets again. If i still feel like this 24 hours after taking just one pill, i dread to think what this medication would do to my body long term. Avoid! F 27 1 days

 3  Painful stiff neck Rectal bleeding Dizziness Took the edge off the pain in my neck enough to allow me to function during the day, but the dizziness and rectal bleeding I started noticing towards end of 2nd day is not worth continuing.

 1  Back ache Flu symptoms, laryngitis, hoarseness, diarrhea, severe chest pain (rushed to hospital with suspected heart attack), blood in stool, (unexplained) bruising, bloating, heart burn, feeling that something is stuck in my throat/chest, acute thirst, very hungry, generally feeling dreadful! It has now been 4 or 5 weeks at least since I stopped taking naproxen when I made the connection with loss of voice, flu symptoms and heartburn and diarrhea. Being rushed off in an ambulance with acute chest pain was terrifying. The diarrhea is still here, plus I now have blood in stool and still feeling of something stuck in my throat. I found a list of all my symptoms on the website detailing side effects associated with taking naproxen. The flu symptoms went away after the first week and so did hoarseness and voice problems but I'm wondering how long does it take to get this thing out of the system and get rid of all the other symptoms. Does naproxen just poison you and leave you to suffer indefinitely? Why are doctors still prescribing this chemical if they are aware of it's negative impact on the body? F 55 5 days
