... But my wrist is aching. Because its aching I need to take some pain reliever to ease the pain. But again, when I asked a friend doctor, he advised me do not always take medicines because it will affect my liver. The pain in my wrist is more than a week now. It caused from a pulling of thing and I thing the vein or maybe the joints have been pulled up that cause the pain now. I never take a medicine because I can handle the pain. But though I can handle the pain, it is always here. I'm considering to take a pain reliever now. It's just okay?

i think depends on what pain reliever you're thinking of taking, how much and how often. i don't think taking one alaxan, for example, once a day just until the pain is gone then stop will immediately affect your liver. if you still don't want to, maybe try 'hilot.'

If there's a malunggay somewhere in your area pick a branch leave, cook it and eat. it also serve as a way to help with inflammation of joints. I hope it's not carpal tunnel syndrome.

I am not a doctor, but these are things I would consider if I was having wrist pain. If you already have liver problems you shouldn't take any pain relievers, but if you are otherwise healthy, as long as you take the recommended dose of pain reliever at the recommended time intervals you should be fine. NSAID pain relievers will also help reduce inflammation and so help to promote permanent healing. However if they don't relieve the pain don't take a larger dose than recommended because it won't have any more effect on the pain but could be harmful to the liver. Go to a doctor if the pain doesn't improve in a few days.
