Did he specify the type of NSAID? I breastfed my youngest while taking Ibuprofen regularly. I also breastfed while on diclofenac (Voltaren). I didn't have to wean until I needed to be on much stronger meds (I have lupus/kidney disease). Are they doing any lab work to get a firm diagnosis?

If you do have lupus or rheumatoid arthritis or any other autoimmune disease for that matter, it is very important to take the meds that are prescribed. Besides the pain that comes with it, these diseases untreated can cause permanent damage and your health is very important. I would say if you had to do one or the other...definitely wean and take the meds. However, you may consider calling your DDs pediatrician about the meds your doc wants you to take and get his/her opinion before you decide.

Good luck!
