I've been having pain in my lower right abdomen. They've done ultrasounds, a CT scan, referred me to another doctor. And we still don't know what's wrong. I've had 2 c-sections and so the thought was scar tissue, so I did massage and ultrasound therapy for that. Didn't work.
Just because they can't find what's wrong doesn't mean I'm not in pain. I could barely sleep last night because it hurt so bad.
I've asked straight out, can I get something for the pain. She tells me to alternate ibuprofen and tylenol.... It doesn't work. I tell her that, and still nothing. My stomach is getting to the point where it's ripped apart from all the ibuprofen I've been taking!

OTC meds are not the answer for pain management, try to see a better doctor or try holistic approach. Most doctors would deter you from using Tylenol and ibuprofen every day for an extended period of time. An internist would likely prescribe painkillers there's also methadone clinics not just for junkies but also for pain management this would be a last resort though .
