I’m thinking the best time to write about pain is when you are feeling the pain. That’s me right now.
I had no idea that spending a lot of time on the computer at home would cause certain very uncomfortable body aches and pains. I thought that only happened to office workers who spent a lot of time on computers for many, many years. I’m familiar with the carpal tunnel syndrome office workers get in their hands and wrists, the problems with their knees and circulation in their legs from keeping them bent in the sitting position too much, a stiff neck and shoulder pains, back pains and lots more.
I come on the computer mostly to write articles for Associated Content and to socialize with others. That doesn’t sounds like a lot, but for some reason my body is feeling it. I’m sure being 54 years old has something to do with it too, as our bodies get stiff as we get older.
My most significant pains from being on the computer very often is the pain in my right hand from spreading it over the computer mouse, back pain and pains in my legs, especially in my ankles. Let me tell you that sometimes these pains are so bad that it is almost impossible for me to sit at the computer. It certainly makes me irritable too, as I want to accomplish things but am inhibited to do so.
Life has to be better than this.
I’m the type of person who always quickly looks for a solution to problems.
I rather be happy and feel good.
I have tried many over-the-counter pain relievers for these aches and pains and none of them gave me much relief.
Even though I have never been diagnosed with Arthritis, I decided to try Tylenol for Arthritis Pain. I first became familiar with Tylenol for Arthritis Pain when I saw a coupon for it in a Sunday newspaper coupon insert. When I was in Walgreens one day, I picked up the box to read about it and I noticed that each pill is 650 mgs., which is 150 mgs. more than the common over-the-counter pain relievers. The manufacturer suggests adults can take 2 pills at a time, so it had me thinking 1300 mgs. at a time might do the trick and get rid of my very uncomfortable aches and pains. I decided to buy a box. A box of 50 caplets of Tylenol for Arthritis Pain was on sale for $7.99 and I had a $2.00 off manufacturer’s coupon, so for only $5.99 it was definitely worth a try.
The next day, as I sat at the computer, my pains started. I decided to take 2 caplets of the Tylenol for Arthritis Pain to see if they helped more than the other over-the-counter pills I had been taking. Amazingly, they did. I’d say within 30 minutes all my aches and pains were gone and my time on the computer was very productive.
It is recommended that adults take no more than 6 pills within 24 hours. Ironically I usually only need about 2 pills per 24 hours to relieve all of my aches and pains. The box of 50 caplets lasted me a long time.
Since I am a frugal person, I only buy what I need when it is on sale and if I have a manufacturer’s coupon for the item, I am even happier. Name brand Tylenol for Arthritis Pain is what I consider to be expensive when it isn’t on sale.
The time came when I needed to buy another bottle of an over-the-counter pain reliever for Arthritis Pain, but during that specific week, none of our close, local stores had Tylenol for Arthritis Pain on sale. I thought about trying a store brand Acetaminophen for Arthritis Pain since I know that store brand products which compare to name brand products are always significantly cheaper.
When I was out that week, I was in Walmart and my shopping list reminded me that I needed to buy an over-the-counter arthritis strength pain reliever. I know from personal experience that Walmart has regular low prices and even better sale prices, so I decided to browse in their over-the-counter pain medication section to see what they had and at what prices. As I browsed, I noticed a 100 count box of their Equate brand of over-the-counter Arthritis Pain reliever was $6.42, which was almost the same price as I had bought the Tylenol brand of 50 caplets on sale and with a coupon in Walgreens. The milligrams of each pill were the same too, so I decided to buy the box and give it a try. I bought a 100 count bottle of Equate Acetaminophen Extended-Release caplets, 650 mg. each for only $6.42.
The next day I was so satisfied when I took 2 of the Equate Acetaminophen Extended-Release caplets and they worked. Just 2 caplets gave me 8+ hours of relief. I was so excited because I look forward to going on the computer every day and now I found a solution to the aches and pains that usually made it difficult for me. I don’t even need to take the maximum 6 pills per 24 hours that is recommended on the box.
Now I always keep a box of Acetaminophen for Arthritis Pain in the house. If a name brand is on sale, I buy it that week and keep it for when I have finished the currently opened bottle.
Acetaminophen agrees with me and the other medications I take. If you are considering trying this type of over-the-counter medication for your aches and pains, please check with your doctor first to make sure it is safe for you to take.
My resources are my personal pains and a bottle of Equate Arthritis Pain Acetaminophen Extended-Release caplets, 650 mg. each.
