I don't know about meds causing flare-ups, Della, but my husband has CTS
and I have tendonitis. My husband found that the condition is aggravated
after he's eaten acidic foods, such as, tomato sauce, oranges, etc. To
this end, it would seem to me that aspirin-type products might aggravate it
also since it's made from acetyl salysilic (sp?) acid.
Hope this helps.
