Taking aspirin or Naproxen?

Yesterday I fell and badly hurt my knee and I am wondering about taking additional aspirins or other anti-inflammatory such as naproxen with my condition. I have been diagnosed with essential thrombocytosis and JAK2 mutation. Has anyone had experience with taking additional aspirin for pain?   Last visit platelets were below 500. I’m 62 and only take full strength 325mg aspirin every morning. I don’t like to take narcotic pain relievers and Tylenol really doesn’t help. What is the issue with taking an additional aspirin or two for pain? Or some naproxen if not taken with aspirin!  Thanks

    You should talk to your doctor, not strangers on the internet.
