I have a pacemaker being put in 4 days. My question is it's safe to take an Aleve or ibuprofen or something today for severe back pain? A little more about it I have 3 hour drive ahead of me today and sitting is killing my back. Then if the pain doesn't go away I've got a 2-hour drive to get to surgery from where I'll be and I know I can't take nothing that day

I’m sure it all depends on your heart condition. Was recommended by my cardiologist to take Tylenol and no ibuprofen. Tylenol extra strength worked well for me. Good luck!

Your signature looks like an EKG.
