    Barely take it so i don't know how long it lasts and of course it would probably vary between person to person but how long on average does it reduce pain?

    Deciding on whether or not to see doctor about painful joint or not so quick reply would be nice

    It takes normally around 10 minutes to work, and for me it stays like that for at least half the day :eek:

    Or chloroform? There are experts in that field who lurk these very forums.

    ... well I guess it depends on the dosage, usually it is 500g. Just a week ago, I chipped one of my teeth on a hard sweet and it hurt like I was literally in hell or what hells is described to be like. (I'm atheist) I thought the pain would go away after a while, it didn't, so I bought 500g pills of paracetamol. It sure did take the pain away after around 5 minutes of taking it with lots of water. However the pain came back around 4 hours later, where I had to take another pill and so on, then I went to the dentist and checked it out for me and put things right. Phew.

    Though I would consult your doctor, usually paracetamol is for short term purposes only, or for any pain that may resolve themselves. - Though considering it is a joint problem, you don't want to do any more damage, than that of what there might be. So I would suggest contacting your doctor.

    Well i wouldn't say it's a joint problem more of an injury. Did something to my shoulder yesterday (not sure what) and it left both arms (lucky me i ****** both of them up) in agony last night. Was going to sleep it off but obviously that didn't work lol but i'll see what happens tonight once this stuffs worn off
