Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The first sentence says 'aspirin sensitive'
Later you say you are 'on low dosage aspirin'!!

Sensitivity is not dose related...
Generally alternatives like clopidogrel is offered fro aspirin- sensitive people.

Any Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug - like naproxen - must be taken with care by people sensitive to aspirin.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
