Tummy Rumbling - Aspirins harsh affects on your GI tract

Patients seem to tell me all the time that they are "allergic" to aspirin.  
 When I ask them what happens they say I get a  terrible upset stomach or it will make my bleeding  ulcer worst. Ewww. The latter of the two is  correct, but it  is still not considered a true allergy.  Aspirin is an  irreversible platelet (the stuff that  makes you clot  and stop bleeding) inhibitor so if  you have a  bleeding ulcer it will make your stomach bleed more. Having your GI upset with aspirin is probably one of the most common side effects that occurs, but now you don't have to live with it. Using  the No Mo Nausea Band when your tummy starts to rumble could be your next step to stability in and out of your body.
