No I’m not referring to clever Pilgrims but painkillers and anti inflammatories.
Firstly, let me say that any medications should of be taken following professional medical advice!
So on my first Camino I ‘survived’ with a couple of daily doses of Panadol and Ibuprofen. This was on advice from my doctor as I have chronic Achilles tendinitis. I could not have made it without those meds.
So I came prepared again this year. But just before leaving home, my physio suggested trying Aspirin as they act in a different way.
We’ve used them on a couple of our longer days and I have too say I think they are more effective. Pat tried them for her Plantaar Faciitis and they help her a lot too.
Might be worth asking your doctor if you too have a condition that needs pain relief or anti inflammatory.
