    I think that naoproxen, in addition to reducing any inflammation is also supposed to have an effect on pain, ie reduce it. Now you have stopped it (and for good reason) it is likely that things will deteriorate, which proves it was helping you. Possibly it built up in your system somewhat which is why things didn't immediately go wrong. Up the pain meds and go and see if the doc has anything else in his armoury, either for the ulcers of anti-inflammatory-wise. I wish you well. DD

    Hello Val

    Just seen your post. Sorry about the Naproxen and that you are feeling so rotten with your cold.

    Thinking of you.
