Arthritis Pain (aspirin) for Heart Attack: I have rheumatoid arthritis and take an aspirin per day for my heart. It is effective in relieving headaches, especially quick if the tablet is chewed. Read the side effects to receive best results. Dosage I use is two, repeated as needed every few hours. This based on my needs and experience.
Stanback Analgesic (aspirin) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I have rheumatoid arthritis in my shoulders and hands. My doc has had me try several different NSAID's for it. I was having the best results with plain old ibuprofen. But I was having to take 16 - 20 200 mg tablets a day. I saw Stanback at a local discount store and got 2 boxes. I was suffering terribly from the shoulder and hand pain and was willing to try anything. I tried Stanback, and it was like a miracle for me! If you're not familiar with Stanback it is a headache powder you can either take mixed with a liquid or pour straight on the tongue. It's very old school but works well and doesn't even taste bad.
aspirin for Sciatica: I have severe sciatica as a result of cyst on L5. Epidural failed, gave relief for a week before pain returned, and I am headed toward surgery to remove the cyst. I have found aspirin works better than Aleve (2 every 8 hours or 3 every 12 hours per my doc is OK) , Advil and Tylenol, 10 MG Norco and Gabapentin although I am stepping up bit by bit to a full dose of gabapentin and maybe eventually that will help. On a scale of 1-10 my pain is a 10 and the aspirin will cut it down to a 3-4 for a couple of hours.
aspirin for Heart Attack: My family has a history of heart attack so I always carry aspirin with me just in case. I found a wristband on the market that stores 2 aspirin in it. It is a great and convenient method of carrying aspirin around so I don't need a bulky bottle of it in my pocket. It is called the Beatfirst Aspirin Wristband for anyone else with the same problem.
Bufferin (aspirin) for Pain: After having ulcers the doctor recomended bufferin for pain, that was 40 years ago. I have relied on that and extra strength bufferin since then. Since it was taken off the market I have tried others but they do not work as well. Please please bring the bufferin back.
Bayer Advanced Aspirin (aspirin) for Back Pain: Used Bayer Advanced for back pain before bed, slept through the night, which I haven't done for months. I take it every night before bed and can actually sleep.
aspirin for Osteoarthritis: I have found that aspirin has been an amazing help with the arthritis pain that I have dealt with over the years. I don%u2019t know what got into me to give aspirin a try but am I ever glad that I did! I had thought that naproxen was the best I could do for pain using over the counter medicines since it had been a prescription drug at the time it was prescribed for me for this several years ago. However, at least for my shoulder pain problem, it has been the other way around.
Bayer Aspirin (aspirin) for Back Pain: It works. I always take Bayer when I have a headache, and it always works. I took store brand aspirin for four days battling a headache, and it just DID NOT work at ALL. Popped two expired Bayer today and they still worked like magic on both my back pain from menstruation and the headache I haven't been able to get over. I feel so much better that I literally went online to write a review about it. If that doesn't convince you, I don't know what will. Try it, it works.
aspirin for Pain: This would be the second most effective NSAID for me, behind Motrin but well ahead of Aleve or other OTC's of any type - It is my preference for "cold and flu" because it breaks a fever pretty quick. If there is a downside, it's that if I take 2 or 3 a day for more than a week, it definitely causes a ringing in my ears, loud. Short-term or simple pain, the old school aspirin just works.

Bayer Aspirin Extra Strength Plus (aspirin) for Angina: I had short respiration and pain in the side left of the head and neck, very rapid palpitations and with fatigue. I took an aspirin and the next day I was feeling good or better.
aspirin for Sciatica: I am 35 year old male with moderate to severe sciatica (pain from buttock to ankle) due to bulging disc L5 - S1. I found taking a 1000mg dose gave significant and almost total relief for about 1 to 2 hours. The effect was greater if the pain was not too severe, the best results came from taking Aspirin before the pain got severe. I also found that taking Aspirin without food made it work faster but I suffered stomach aches a consequence.

aspirin for Back Pain: Have tried Motrin, Aleve, Tylenol for back pain and nothing works as well. Take it with food and take a brand that is coated and even the few side effects are lessened. It's still the safest and most effective in my personal view.

aspirin for Thromboembolic Stroke Prophylaxis: I have been using 150mg of aspirin everyday for the last 4 years. I have confirmed Diabetes and borderline high blood pressure. I don't find any side effects. The rest of the health parameters are okay.
