Hi Jherm

I think some people on this board take nsaids but I find increasingly they make my stomach sore.   

It's difficult as I think nsaids used as anti-inflammatories aren't they and that would be useful in your circumstances I imagine.  I do have a friend who like me has had gastritis over the summer and her GP told her if she wants to take a nsaid she should take something to protect her stomach first - but then she has a sensitivity there, like me.

Personally one thing I do occasionally do which I find really helps take the pain away fast is having a couple of parcetamols and a cup of sugary coffee when I take them.  I think the caffeine speeds up the cure.  But then I read this  - so exercise caution (and by the way, I'm not implying you have a hangover! I don't even drink!!)

Advil is not Gluten Free because it is subject to cross contamination. 

According to the company, "Advil Liqui-Gels and Advil Migraine contain a wheatderivative, and are not gluten-free." It's not clear whether regular Advil and/or AdvilFilm-Coated products are produced in the same facility, which would subject them to gluten cross-contamination.Aug 31, 2017

If you think the cause if your headache is allergies, consider taking an antihistamine.  Try to solve the root cause instead of just relieving the symptom.

Hope you feel better soon.  I can not take any NSAIDS or acetaminophen because I am highly allergic.  So, I can not help you with brands, but someone else might.  Target often has OTC products that are clearly labeled gluten-free.

I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut.  But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen.  It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
