I'll be seeing my GP at the end of the week for the result of an x-ray on my foot. It's become painful to walk and I believe it may be osteoarthritis - I've got it in other joints. I also think I may have a spur at the top of my foot. My GP prescribed ibuprofen initially, which I took with Lansoprazole, as I've had stomach pains when I've taken ibuprofen in the past. The prescription was for a month, but, after 10 days I noticed my motions were very dark, almost black. This alarmed me somewhat and so I stopped taking them, going back to my usual painkillers - paracetamol. My motions have now returned to normal. My question is, when I see my GP on Friday, does this mean that it wouldn't be a good idea for me to have any NSAIDS at all? Or are there other NSAIDS which it would be safe for me to take?
