Just take some ibuprofen. Percocet is pretty potent stuff.

I tried yesterday with ibuprofen, but it didn't help at all. The pain is so bad it actually makes my arms feel numb.

You could take half a percocet. Try rubbing Vick's on it and icing it.

No. That's why I'm confused on why it hurts so much.

A percocet 5 mg shouldn't be that bad, I would do it.

I think you should get it checked out, I wouldn't go to the ER, but maybe an urgent care clinic tomorrow??



Have you taken Percocet before? If they don't dope you up too bad, go ahead and take it. I would go ahead and take more ibuprofen, too. And use a heating pad if you have one.

I just took some ibuprofen and has SO put some Icy Hot on me. Hopefully it helps.

Quoting Miss Brittany:" What's the best medicine for muscle pain? My neck and shoulders have been hurting for 2 days now. Would a Percocet be too strong?"


Regular massages. I know that's not an inexpensive way to go, but it works, along with regular chiro visits.
And pot.
I've been on some pretty stong muscle relaxers and pain meds and by far the above mentioned worked much better.
But, if a percocet is what you have, I'd take one and take a nice hot bath.

You don't want heat on an inflamed muscle.

So Icy Hot was a bad idea?

Icy hot is Methanol, that's is. It's not really "heat" or "Ice" It's the same thing as Vick's vapor rub.
