Thanks for posting that.
I think Kenny Easley of the Seahawks was using those for pain and he had kidney problems.
Easley's career ended after the 1987 season after being diagnosed with severe kidney disease.
In a lawsuit filed last year, Easley alleged his kidney trouble was caused or substantially aggravated by large doses of the pain reliever ibuprofen. He sued the Seahawks, the team's doctors and trainer and a distributor of the medication Advil, which contains ibuprofen.
If you are in pain, it's important to find out why and see if you can fix it.
I think the reason I'm pain free, is that I found a good chiropractor when I was forty.
She uses a NUCCA technique, which sucks if you are the chiropractor and want to have a nice home. It can fix most things with one visit.
Having been in construction most of my life, it was a godsend to finally find something that would keep me working and playing without the pain. The only time I've needed pain medication, was for the surgeries. When those healed, I forgot I even had things like Advil or aspirin in the medicine cabinet.
