    My broken wrist is killing me! I was up all night, until I took some Motrin, when I got some sleep. It's not just my wrist, but it's also the abrasions all over my body. What's your favorite pain killer?

    my god, what happened?

    Favorite pain killer: sleep. I've found that if I can manage to get well rested, I'm better to psychologically handle pain. It's tough, as pain generally keeps me from sleeping. Tylenol PM is pretty good, tho.

    Well, there was a bike race downtown, and my family, a friend, and I went biking on the side walk, next to the race. The sidewalk was stuffed, everyone was biking, scootering, skating, jogging, there was no space. Eventually, we decided to go back to the car. We were about halfway there when some other biker cut me off. Hhe knocked over my bike, my wrist went out, and I'm not quite sure whether I blacked out or not, but I got right back up thinking I could jog off the injury. My little brother, who must have been tailgating me, went crashing into my bike, he's OK. Luckily, there was an ambulance nearby, and I got taken to a local hospital, where they put on a cast.

    It hurts so badly to type one handed, in addition to things.

    Bike accidents are the worst. I once crashed on a path on the way to the dentist. It was early morning & I bonked. To make matters worse, I was on a fairly secluded path (in the 'burbs, but not well traveled at that early hour). I blacked out for a while, then left my bike & stumbled to a phone, where I discovered that my dad's office didn't accept collect calls (great, huh?). I finally got ahold of an operator who connected me for free. I hurt my wrist pretty bad, but was otherwise fine.

    hope you get better quickly!

    Pain killers are weird like that, they work very subjectively in my xp. I've always like ibuprofic (ex. advil), but it does nothing for the rest of my family. Stick with whatever works, and, like I said, keep rested. It's one of those things that isn't taken into account often enough.

    Plain old aspirin works wonders for me. How old are you?

    Tylenol (or any other straight acetaminophen brand) doesn't work on me either. Every time I've taken it, it didn't even dull the pain.

    If it's general body pain/ache or fever, I'll use ibuprofen (any brand), but if it's a headache/migraine, Excedrin works best for me. I guess it their "cocktail" of drugs that by body likes.

    My fiance is 24 and she does too, even those little, tiny sudafeds!

    in other words, don't worry...

    ...also... you're 14!? You write as though you are much older.

    I think you're old enough for aspirin. Have you tried it?

    I'm saying go for "Aleive" (I think that is how it is spelled) It's strong enough, when I did a pain killer lab way back in grade school, it worked the fastest, and it's easy to swallow. It also lasts pretty long.

    I know how you feel. I'm allergic to wasp venom and have been stung in the hand a few times. It's very difficult to do anything with a huge rock where your hand used to be.

    I hate taking pills of any kind but when I need a painkiller I use Exederin.

    For other people's pain I usually suggest a light hammer-tap upside the head, but I'm rude that way.

    Aleive is good. I took a few right after I broke my wrist last year and they seemed to help a bit, but then the doctor gave me something stronger. I just started using the Aleive Cold and Sinus for my allergies and it works great too.

    What type of wrist fracture did the doctor say you have?

    Two things helped when I ripped everything apart in my ankle one year while hiking in the mountains...(the doctor said it would have been much easier to heal if I had broken it): time, and Alieve (sp?). Your pain will begin to subside with time, but meanwhile, Alieve is good stuff, as others have said.

    I was off of the ankle for 13 weeks over all - couch, crutches, etc. - I learned a lot of new software and got lots of letters written! I also learned a lot about rehabbing ankles! I live near the Appalachian Trail and love to hike, so I need both ankles!!

    Hang in there!!

    I'll get back to you on that. I'm not sure. I'm really depressed. In the next 4 weeks, I had the following planned:

    Going to Dorney Park (local theme park),
    Hosting a class party,
    Going on a long biking trip,
    What kids do when school is out for the summer .

    Oh well.

    Spelled 'Aleve'. I'd also recommend it for that type of pain if you can take it.
