HI AND PLEASED TO ANSWER YOU
IBUPROFEN IS A Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs AND THEIR major side effects are related to their effects on the stomach and bowels (gastrointestinal system). The vagus nerve is actually two cranial nerves that extend from the brain stem and connect down to the viscera. Sometimes this nerve is referred to as cranial nerve X. Changes in the heart rate variability are well known among PATIENTS having gastric complaints, and those symptômes are related to the vagus nerve trouble, related to the gastric inflammation found with NSAID use.
I will prescribe to you a treatment to your gastric complaintes pantoprazole 40 ONCE DAILY and a NSAID without gastric side effects CELBREX 200 ONDE DAILY.
MAY THIS HELP YOU.
BEST WISHES
