    Ibuprofen can have some serious side effects if taken over a long period. I can't take it at all without severe gastric distress along with bladder pain.

    Have you had testing done to find the reason for the jaw pain? I ended up with surgery for my TMJ.

    The same for me. In my 20's, I took a lot of Ibuprofen for neck pain over a five year period.

LOTS OF IBUPROPHEN! The minimum dose was three, every six hours, for days at a time. Four at a time was VERY common. If I got no relief in two hours we took another for a total of five. My Dr was aware of this and said I'd be fine. Thirty days after my treatment was complete and I didn't need ibuprophen anymore I started the typical story of IC.
    My mom is possitive it was all the meds, but I guess we'll never know.
    The ironic thing is now I have a uro that WILL NOT give oral pain meds of any kind.
    So what do you think any possible connection?

    P.S. I too have a number of saddle horn stories from early ages to teen years.
    I believe that all the pain meds I was taking for headaches and a bad tooth caused my bladder to become inflamed and then to IC.
