Does anyone know at what point does the pain start to ease off? I've been hurting since at least Monday or Tuesday and it's agonizing. For the first two days I couldn't even sleep. Now most nights I get maybe 1-4 hours sleep and I am up and active at 3:00 am (4:00 am if I am lucky). I feel like I can't function or get anything done. The pain comes and goes randomly so sometimes I feel alright aside from swelling. The last pain-free period I had was maybe around 6 PM after soup and tea, the ear drops, and the acemetophen.
Second question: if I am taking as many acemetophens as possible short of what would cause liver damage, would easing off of them make my pain worse? I don't know if having 4,000 mgs every 24 hours is even going to help me through this. It doesn't even feel like I'm getting pain relief. But I am afraid if I stop I'm going to hurt even more.
