      I know ibuprofen is a bit of a no-no for us, but does anyone have any alternatives?
      I'm dealing with a bursitis flare up in both hips and in a bit of pain. Because it's inflamation, it's been suggested I use ibuprofen but am a bit worried about using it for a few days/weeks in a row ...
      Thanks :)

      Ibuprofen anti inflamatory is at least 600mg at once. I very rarwly use 200mg with hesistance at max.

      In your case i would rather take steroid antiinflammatory like prednisone than risk tinnitus increase from massive doses of ibrofen.

      Tinnitus Talk likes to blow things out of proportions.

      There is nothing wrong with occasional Ibuprofen if you don't go over the maximum recommended dosage.

      Ibuprofen does not have the same effect on all cases of tinnitus. It aggravates some but not others. In my case, it doesn't affect my T.

      Ibuprofen doesn't affect my T but it messes up my stomach, so I don't generally mess with it.

      Turmeric is good. Also marijuana, depending on where you live.
