So another topic I have been trying find people in the same predicament (sp) as me. I was diagnosed with von Willibreand disease recently. For those that don't know it is a bleeding disorder. Not long after that I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. So here is my issue. With the von Willibrand I can not take anti-inflamitories. I have 4 children at home so I do not like taking certain pain meds. What kinds of things does everyone use to help with painful flare ups. I have a heating pad but that only does so much.
I look forward to hearing all of your reccommendations
I have vwd 2a and although I cant take most anti inflammatories when I went to hospital with a nasty shoulder tear they gave me arthrotec which is an anti-inflam but with a special ingredient to protect your stomach lining. I'm in the UK though so realise things are different in other countries
