Today's GP visit went well. He gave me a prescription that *isn't* an NSAID for the various aches and pains that have appeared in the wake of my stopping the naproxen. I'd kind of hoped for an OTC recommendation, rather than a prescription. On the other hand, we see what 18 months of taking OTC meds on autopilot has led to: specialist visits and iron pills. So maybe a script isn't a bad idea, all things considered.
Right now, what I REALLY want are some prescription-strength M&Ms. ;-) I'm hungry, but I have to wait a bit longer, after having taken one of the above-mentioned iron pills, before I can eat.
