Hello. I m 16 years old, female, 5 6 , and 210lb. I ve been having pain in my right, lower back since June 3, 2014 and it feels like it s getting worse. Back pain has never happened to me before. That was when I noticed it was really hurting and that was the first time it s hurt that badly. I ve never had back pain like this before and I fully understand that my weight may be a factor. I ve been taking over the counter pain killers like ibuprofen for about a month every night and they don t feel like they re working. Recently, I ve been feeling the ache in my right leg and I m starting to get really worried. If you, have an idea to why this might be happening, please let me know so I can see my family doctor.

Hello, Older neighbors watching their grand-children. The children are 2 years old. Apparently, they each bit and possibly ate a portion of ibuprofen tablets. I think they 200 mg tablets. According to the neighbor, this happened about 5 hours ago. They said the children played like normal over the course of their time with the grand-parents. The children have since gone to sleep (probably 2 hours ago). The neighbor is now worried about the effect of the ibuprofen on the children, given the fact that they have gone to sleep. What do you think? Thanks.
