Aleve (naproxen) for Headache: "My head and base of the neck started hurting three days ago. The pain also moved from place to place and so abnormal that I scheduled a doctor's appointment...for next week. This pain even made my "hair" hurt. Felt like spots in the central back part of my head had been "bruised" and again, the pain location changed from the back center of head to my upper neck to the back of ears and then to the top. Prescription pain medicine left over from a surgery didn't help. Last night I took 3 Aleve out of desperation. Fell asleep and woke up a few hours later feeling much, much better. Will still see my doctor but won't be a crazy person by the time I get there."

For Period Pain: "I have tried everything but only with this painkiller I can function on first day of my period. I still feel little pain but bearable. I can go to job. Until I discover this drug I was every month minimum one day in bed vomiting, screaming and crying. Other pills never helped this much."

For Period Pain: "I was passing out from the sheer pain that radiated from my lower abdomen to my lower back and so on. I had quite the pain tolerance, yet this pain was like no other. Hot water bottles, home remedies, Motrin, nothing worked. When I spoke to my doctor, she recommended the pill but my mother was against this because of my age. After I turned 13, my doctor decided to prescribe me naproxen, 250 mg, take 2 at onset of cramps and then 1 pill every 6-8 hours as needed. It was magical, I mean within 10-20 minutes of me taking it, the pain went away. How? Naproxen is a NSAID, it reduces inflammation in the uterus. That simple. Highly recommend, but use carefully so as to not damage your liver. Seriously."

For Bursitis: "I was prescribed Naproxen 500mg for my bursitis behind my knees in both legs. I am a college athlete and was having many problems performing at the necessary level with the pain in my legs--Naproxen helped immensely. Felt very nauseous if I did not take this medication on a full stomach!"

For Tendonitis: "I love Aleve! I've been lifting weights for more than 20 years and started having tendonitis in my elbows a few years ago. Often times all I'd have to do is take Aleve and rest for a day or two and the pain would go away. This time I'm having to lay off the heavy weights (for good) and wear the brace, but use Aleve as well. The combination of the two is really working! I started out taking it twice a day, but have gone down to once a day. I plan to do that for a week or two."

Flanax Pain Reliever (naproxen) for Costochondritis: "I have had costochondritis for two months now. I have found that my body best responds to naproxen and toradol/ ketorolac. These have both been prescribed to me after my success with Flanax (Naproxen)."

For Osteoarthritis: "Actively particepated in physical activities in Army long service. During that time didn't have any ortho problems. little crossing over 60 yrs age I noticed pain with cracking sound in my Rt knee in regular brisk walking. The pain was not subsided with various topical creams from Homoeopath as well as Allopathic NSAIDS.Instead,severely suffered with agrevatred pain in knee and stiffness in ankle Jt in same leg. One day I came accross prominent action of NAPROXEN in OA.Following 500 mgs BD after meals for fortnight, the neproxen proved to be excellent and brushed aside all other subtitutes. It has rejuvenated my previous strength in carrying out day today works. No side affects observed."

Aleve (naproxen) for Back Pain: "I don't know what I did but whenever I jumped on the trampoline with my kids, I was experiencing some weird pain in my upper back. I put some a535 on my back. That didn't help. The next day it still hurt!! Then I took two aleve pills and the next morning I was ok. And I continued this way for a few days and my back was all better!!! Thanks aleve! "

Aleve (naproxen) for Frozen Shoulder: "Very little relief. I finished PT and after a year it still wasn't great. Due to other issues a physician switched me to Diflofenac Sodium (Voltarin?) which has been a wonderful. It takes away all my joint issues."

For Pain: "Taking for All over pain and arthritis from car crash. After suffering for 14 years of spine knee neck and wrist pain I was on tramadol and Co-codamol but was bedridden nearly everyday, Nhs changed me onto naproxen and I could potter about doing housework after three doses of 500mg with Co-codamol. I couldn't believe the difference after all the years of suffering! Hopefully get back to the old me in no time. Looking forward to all the ups and not so many downs."

Anaprox (naproxen) for Osteoarthritis: "If you have any kind of stomach problems, these kind of medications aren't for you. It only relieved about 10-20% of my pain & hurt my stomach in the process."

Aleve (naproxen) for Costochondritis: "I've been diagnosed with costochondritis for 2 yrs now. I have other joint issues, along with military neck and tendinitis. Nothing has worked as well and effectively as Aleve. I take anywhere from 220-500mg when needed. All my aches and pains subside and I can move about freely. Even with nerve damage. I am so thankful for Aleve!"
