I am sorry you have this pain?

where in your abdomen are you having pain? upper or lower abdomen?

aleve can cause gastritis and cause pain below your left ribs in the left upper abdomen.

this would be treated with a stomach acid reducing medication.

make sure you take the aleve after meals with food already in your stomach and with plenty of water

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
