Dr. Cameron :

hello

Dr. Cameron :

welcome to the chat

Dr. Cameron :

How much aleve have you taken?

Dr. Cameron :

just 1?

Dr. Cameron :

I see that you are not online any more

Dr. Cameron :

You can take up to 3 aleve a day

Dr. Cameron :

In general, you do NOT need an xray unless there is a history of trauma

Dr. Cameron :

You should not take aleve and ibuprofen at the same time- you can take one or the other- they are similar medications- NSAIDS

Dr. Cameron :

Yes, you can take lunesta to help you sleep

Dr. Cameron :

If you stretched or partially tore a muscle then it can take a few days to heal

Dr. Cameron :

Another possibility is trochanteric bursitis which is on the hip as well.

Dr. Cameron :

You can read about it here:

Hi yes I'm not sure how to stay online . I just wait for the notification of a response. Thx I will take one more aleve as I took one only at 11 pm. I have never had a history of this . Only osteoarthritis in knee. It just concerns me as it hurts even when resting asleep but I'll wait to see if heals in a couple days. Can I still teach my class Friday? If I stay off it rest of week?
Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 1 year ago.
No problem.
I am wondering if it is trochanteric bursitis- please take a look at the link- it is in the area of the hip as well. And that will hurt when you are asleep.
I would plan on staying off of it for the rest of the week. Friday is quickly approaching and you don't want to aggravate it

thanks

I hope this helped.
