Hi Joe

The worry with Ibuprofen and aspirin (NOT just the stomach irritation issue) is that they now think that Ibuprofen reduces the anti-platelet effect of the aspirin - which essentially means you may lose the 'heart/clot prevention' effect that you're taking it for. Like most things its a 'weigh up the pros and cons' - but I think I would go for the stretches rather than the increased cardiac risk!

Is it always the same glute that's giving you the trouble? Or does it change sides sometimes? Sorry, don't want to get too personal but its just something I was thinking about, medically.
