I didn't know the difference between acetaminophen and ibuprofen until yesterday. I've had chronic foot and ankle pain for the past one week. I was taking acetaminophen for pain relief but finally decided to see a doctor because my pain wasn't going away. My doctor diagnosed me with tendinitis and told me to take ibuprofen and not acetaminophen. She said that ibuprofen helps with inflammation and that is what I'm suffering from!
I started taking ibuprofen yesterday and I'm already seeing a difference! My feet are less painful today!
