My aunt started her long career that saw her running a network of hospitals off as a nurse. So she told me today something that I should have thought of but didn't. Anti Inflammatory drugs stop the area from being inflamed. When you stop taking them, the pain may come back depending upon the seriousness of the injury. Now I see why the drug slowly wean you off it over a week. Today was a good day, I was walking with almost no limp at all. I can still feel some tenseness right now but who knows. I have 3 more days on the drug then I go the the GP again on Monday.
