 2  Low back/leg pain No side effects until after the third dose. Started with waking during the night with indigestion. Followed the next morning with bloating, extreme belching, and occasional stomach pains. Felt like a tight band stretched across the upper back. I did note decreased pain levels. The side effects severe enough to discontinue medication. Slight anxiety noted.. Possibly because of the side effects, or was it the medication. F 45 3 days

 1  Lower back pain Heart palpitations, constant ringing in my ears, feeling dizzy. Started with severe back pain that spread to my chest. It felt like i was being crushed, difficulty breathing. The Heart palpitations, constant ringing in my ears, feeling dizzy started about 7 days after stopping the med. After four days on Naproxen I though I was having a Heart attack. Ended up in an Ambulance taken to A&E. Two Months on and I'm still wrecked. This med should be BANNED! M 49 4 days

 1  Separated shoulder Terrible stomach ace, dry mouth, chills. Instructed to take 2x day. After the first day, I woke up in the middle of the night to stomach pains so bad I can't sleep: I haven't taken any more, and here I am on night 3 and it's just as bad. Makes me feel hungry in the middle of the night, but food makes it worse. Milk helps. Another in my house has similar effects. This stuff is awful, don't take it. Side effects worse than shoulder pain. M 27 1 days

 1  Shoulder pain Horrendous Stomach Pain which radiated to my back. Vomiting. Diarrhoea I took this drug to help with pain in my shoulder. About two hours later whilst trying to sleep I suddenly suffered severe stomach pain which radiated through to my back. This carried on all night and I did not/could not sleep. I'm not kidding you, I honestly thought I was going to die! At first I thought I had food poisoning but I am two weeks on from taking just two tablets and I am still suffering from stomach pain and vomiting!! If you do take these, milk does help to relieve a bit of the pain. Also had horrible diarrhoea. You also get hunger pangs when you're not even hungry. I do believe it has caused some sort of ulceration in my stomach and will be visiting my doctor this week to get some sort of medication to heal it. DONT take this drug!!! I cannot believe it has been allowed onto the medical market!!! F 43 1 times

 1  Dry socket (after tooth extraction) Nausea, terrible diarrhoea, tiredness and generally unwell. Took this medication as directed after food. Initially I was absultly fine however woke up the next morning and I felt so rotten couldn't eat or drink. I honestly would have just preferred to put up with the pain had I known it was going to do this to me. Be very cautious when taking this medication it is a beast. F 24 1 days
