When I was growing up I had a grandmother who suffered from chronic headaches. I have no idea what caused them, but I knew they were there, because she would sleep them off often. She also suffered from consistent joint pain in her later years. To combat her pain she would always always always carry aspirin around on her, to the point that you could find them rattling around loose in her purse and wallet, and quite often sitting around in the hallway. She thought aspirin was some kind of cure-all, but given how much of the stuff she took and how little it seemed to do by the end, I wonder if there was some level of addiction involved. Anybody else seen anything like this in their lifetime?
