When my condition first arose, I was confronted with costochondritis. Severe chest pains landed me a visit in the emergency room. Doctors confirmed it to be a panic attack, but since I had no past anxiety disorders I was skeptical. For months following, I was afflicted with heart palpitations. My primary care physician prompted me to take baby aspirin daily. Well, after two months on a special diet, I noticed all heart palpitations were gone, and I had these baby aspirins still sitting on my night stand. One night, I woke up in joint ache pain, and instead of taking my usual Mobic, which caused me to fall back to sleep later, I thought why not try one of these aspirin I don't use anymore? Well, I was shocked after chewing one! It eased my pains, and I feel back to a sound sleep quickly! I believe this is attributed to the mild affect of aspirin rather than being bombarded with a heavier pain killer while my body trying to heal itself through sleep.
Taking a baby aspirin seems logical as it offers a bit of mild relief, just enough to allow you to fall back to sleep again in record time. If you are just having a bit of dull aches that disable you from geting a full night's rest, and your body dislikes those heavy pain pills you take, try this once. Those mild to moderate arthritic, deep in the muscle and ligament aches, that cause your mind unrest in the midmorning hours.
