  • What do you do for pain at the end of the day?

    I am really sore.

    Since nobody has any suggestions, my wife suggested, that I take an Aleve pill and go to bed. ?
    I slept for nine hours and I fell great. Most nights I sleep seven hours.

      Alieve is VERY hard on my gut. Man, you better swallow those fast or they'll burn your throat.

      I use 400 mg Ibuprofen for really serious pain. 200 mg for everyday aches. For injury relief (tooth extraction, sprained ankle, plantar fasciaitis, broken shoulder blade) I'll take both together. To sleep I'll sometimes use Tylenol-3 (codeine) or Percocet saved from various hospital trips (sawed off fingers). But only on special occasions! It's hard to get that stuff so I save it for the really desperate situations. Also, it's addicting. But it works when I need help badly.

        Take a super hot shower with a rubdown with Blue Emu.

          I'm pretty healthy excepting old joint injuries and tendonitis. I'm on a pretty regular diet of 400mg of ibuprofen in the AM and again in the PM. I'd recently tried to step it back due to some of the long term concerns and it seemed to go OK for a bit, and then suddenly after day 4 there was just glass in my shoulders, lived with it for a couple of days and went easy on the arms, but no change. I lift, shoot a bow, study jiu jitsu, and an axes, sledges, and shovels are not strangers to my hands on a weekly basis. I hadn't done anything out of the ordinary. Back to my usual habit and I'm back to my normal self.
          I will say that I've had times when I had an actual injury, like after my last MC accident where I was taking more than that, say 600 mg 3 or 4 times a day. Still under the theoretical maximum dose.. but I can confirm you may then have signs of stomach bleeding.

          From Drugs.com "The maximum amount of ibuprofen for adults is 800 milligrams per dose or 3200 mg per day (4 maximum doses). Use only the smallest amount of medication needed to get relief from your pain, swelling, or fever."

              Ibuprofen and a hot bath will generally take care of sore muscles, but I have a bad back and sometimes have to take a Lortab. The opiate really doesn't relieve pain as much as it makes me not care that it hurts. Don't like the fuzzy-headedness, but don't care for the pain, either.

                  Who takes hot baths? I think most folks take hot showers. ?

                      It looks like Ibuprofen wins by a landslide.

                      Hey JC, I hit the report key by mistake but it doesn't mean crap.
                      I reported a F&S spammer a zillion times and nothing ever happens.
                      It just a scare tactic by the website staff. ?

                        I start off with a hot bath. If that does not work I may take something. All the stuff mentioned is hard on the stomach as well as your liver and kidneys. Anything you take is cleared from your body by those two organs. When I broke my back 3 years ago I started on oxycodin but that shut down my digestive system so she got me on Tramidol which worked o.k. without the side effects. The scripts totaled 365 pills, I have 360 left.
                        Also be careful of the NSAIDS and other drugs as some are harmful to hearing.

                            I usually take a hot shower and it helps most of the time. For regular soreness I don’t do anything unless it’s incredibly bad, then I’ll take a few ibuprofen. Self massage if it’s somewhere reachable. If it’s my back like usual not a lot helps other than laying face down stretched out.

                              At 46, and a job that doesn't require much physical exertion, I seldom have any aches or pains. Over the last year or so, if I wear a certain pair of shoes and spend the day walking around more than usual, I have some pain in the bones of my feet, but that usually goes away after sitting down for a while. If they still ache a little the next morning, I'll take an ibuprofin, and that always does the trick. On my days off, I can hike or hunt all day in hunting boots, and fish all day in either wading shoes or sneakers, and not feel any discomfort during or after. My days are probably numbered in regard to that, but I think the constant activity (or as close to constant as I can) keeps things limber. It dawns on me now that those work days when I do have some foot pain are often after a weekend when I actually DON'T get out and do something.
