Re: fingers in pain
A long acting antiinflamatory would be a good start - like advil, but somthing you only need to take once or twice a day, that will give you round the clock pain releif..... Mobic or Naprosyn are common examples. Mobic is a good one because it is very unlikely to upset the stomach or lead to ulcers etc. It is also generic and dirt cheap.
A prescription is needed for these, so you will need to head back to your doctor. While taking an antiinflamatory, you can still use Tylenol/acetaminophen "as needed" for breakthrough pain (but not Advil)
