34. And good luck finding some Arthritis Strength Tylenol.

It's the strongest OTC Tylenol product you can get, time released, and lasts 8 hrs. It's a godsend for someone who can't take script anti-inflamatories like Voltaran, etc. BUT, try to find it (at least around DE/PA area and you're out of luck.

I went to the ER last year with a 7mm kidney stone trying to work it's way out of the kidney to the bladder. They said it was too small for lithotripsy. We knew it was in there since the docs had been watching and waiting for it to make a move. Talk about painful! It's worse than non-medicated labor/childbirth. After 8 hrs in the treatment area, being catscanned etc, the doc came back and asked how the pain meds were working. I told her "What pain meds?" I don't know if someone filled out my chart wrong or not but I had received no pain meds - oral or IV. Hubby was with me the whole time and could verify that. They sent me home with an envelope with 3 oxy. My 18yo daughter had her 4 wisdom teeth out last year and her oral surgeon prescribed a 30-pill bottle of oxy after the surgery which I thought that was TOTALLY ridiculous for a complications-free procedure. Neither of us used any of them.
