Pass me the pain killers!

Or should it be pass the painkillers?

No, this is not about semantics.  Common painkillers that have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack may also elevate risk of stroke, a new study suggests. While researchers have called the risk ‘small’, it nevertheless exists in people who have taken non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, many of which are available without prescription.

This doesn’t mean that you should grin and bear it when you are in pain. What it does mean, is that medication needs to be taken with caution, and only when necessary. Many people fall into a habit of taking painkillers at the first twinge of pain, or as a preventative measure. Don’t go down this road.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
