If you are taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for arthritis pain, pay attention to this next publication …

The use of NSAIDs may mask the initial symptoms of pneumonia
Joanna Lyford, of Medwire News, reported that people with pneumococcal pneumonia who take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) at the time of diagnosis tend to develop a more serious disease despite being younger and healthier than those who do not use these medications , shows the investigation.
The team behind the finding hypothesizes that the use of NSAIDs may mask the initial symptoms and delay antimicrobial therapy.
"Our data support the need for a prospective, multicenter study to determine whether early use of NSAIDs may predispose to worse outcomes in young adults with pneumococcal pneumonia," write Jean-Damien Ricard (CHU Louis Mourier, Colombes, France) and the team in the Journal. of Critical Care.

Comment: it makes sense, but somewhat disconcerting, I think
