Chronic pain

Chronic pain, long covid and inflammation

I've had chronic pain (nerve and arthritic) for 7 years. In January I got covid and I now have issues with acid reflux (new to me, never previously had issues prior to getting covid) which I take Omeprezole for. The inflammation in my joint is becoming worse and I now feel inflammation and increased pain in my surrounding joints too (hip, knee) and really do think I'd benefit from a stronger anti inflammatory, however have been advised to avoid all anti inflammatories due to the acid reflux issues. I've tried creams, steroid injections. Anyone got any advice?

Anti inflammatories can make reflux worse but I guess it’s up to you what pain is the worse. I’ve been on reflux meds you can top up with Gaviscon as long as you wait least 2 hours. Are you taking about occasions use on extra bad days or would you need several doses a day?
