The best thing to do, is go back and see the same doctor and let him know what has changed since you last saw him.

It takes about 3 weeks for the anti-inflammatory effects of NSAIDs to kick in, you didn't say how long you had been taking Naproxen.

Take care, Annette

Hello there william...
I would encourage you to do the same. Only your doctor can examine you and correctly diagnose the issues you describe. Did he even give you a physical exam of the area you are having issues? Or did you just call in and he prescribed the naproxen?

I hope that you aren't experiencing too much pain. Take care, Bren
