If you have ever had this done you know how painful it can be afterwards. I was fine most of the afternoon until the numbness went away and then the full onset of the pain and throbbing ensued.
So I took a couple of Ibuprofin. NO relief. I figured I would up my dosage after I got out of the bath and hopefully get enough relief to sleep through the night.
Before I got in the bath I took my normal set of daily vitamins. I noticed while sitting in the bath that the throbbing in my toe had ceased. I passed it off as just the elevation of my foot in the bath tub and the relaxation of a warm bath.
When I got out I was waiting for the rush of blood back into the toe and the throbbing that would arrive naturally after that. Still, no throbbing and more importantly, I felt no pain whatsoever. I was puzzled because I hadn't yet increased the Ibuprofin and when I had taken the Ibuprofin earlier if it relieved any pain i certainly couldn't tell.
I got to thinking over the vitamins I had taken. I took Vitamin C, Magmind, and Krill Oil. Krill Oil is an anti-inflammatory so I wondered if the Krill Oil relieved my pain?
I took another before bed and slept like a baby. I awoke to my toe throbbing and very painful. The pain was much worse than the day before. I got up, took the Krill Oil and no pain in about 45 minutes. I continued taking the Krill Oil for the pain for the next few days. ZERO pain.
I normally take 1 MegaRed 350 mg capsule in the morning and one in the evening so I increased my dosage to 3 a day for this issue. I 've been completely pain-free all week and back to my normal dosage.
I'm not a doctor so take my story with a grain of salt but I'm telling you the Krill Oil worked like a charm. It didn't just ease the pain, it removed the pain.
I can't wait for the next minor ache or pain, I will definitely be reaching for the Krill Oil before any pain reliever.
