I’ll be restarting using the G5 shortly, while waiting for the G6 at the end of the year (I’m on Medicare). I disk degeneration and osteoarthritis. For the last few years, I’ve been taking a cocktail of Aleve and acetaminophen (actually, a migraine pill which also contains aspirin and caffeine) in the morning. That’s when the pain is the worst. Once I fall asleep, I sleep like the dead and move very little, if at all. This combination is something I came up with myself. There’s less gastric discomfort than two Aleve, and a relatively small dose of both, so less impact on kidneys, liver, etc. The pain relief is quick, and once I can get up and get moving without a lot of pain, I can work the kinks out.
So, I’m looking for some advice from those of you who are in my same situation. What do you take for pain from arthritis while using the G5?
Thanks for any light you can shed.
