Usually we start with prescribing anti-inflammatory medication (or you can take over the counter ibuprofen, Alleve, etc.) and recommend wearing tighter fitting underwear, such as briefs or a jock-strap. If the pain continues or becomes severe, it's important to see a physician to make sure a varicocele is the only problem. There are surgical options available when the pain is severe, which include cutting out some of the excess vein and re-routing the blood flow (this is called a varicocelectomy). Most people who have varicoceles never experience pain and don't even know they have the condition unless a physician mentions it during a physical exam. I'm also allergic to anti-inflamitory drugs like those. Anything else? That depends what the "allergy" is. Many people say that they are allergic to a medicine if it makes them sick to their stomach or causes another minor side effect--this is not a true allergy, but a normal side effect of the medication. If the anti-inflammatory medications cause severe cramping, ulcers, or difficulty breathing/worsening of asthma, then they truly should be avoided. If it is stomach upset, some physicians still prescribe medications such as Celebrex, which are supposed to not upset the stomach as much (although they still can). If none of the medications can be used, though, then the other treatments I mentioned will have to be used. Certainly a little ice to the area could help as well, although I wouldn't recommend applying it directly to the varicocele area. Thank you. If it makes any difference I am truly allergic to aspirin (I actually took Motrin IB at the time which caused swelling, rash, and difficulty breathing).

Thanks for the feedback!
Does a varicocele go away on its own or do you need some kind of treatment and do you go to the hospital or your family doctor for diagnosis?
Answer . No, a varicocele will not go away without treatment. Surgery is recommended if it is painful or causing infertility. Any doctor can order a semen-analysis to see i…f it is affecting your fertility. They typically feel like "a bag of worms" and only a urologist or a general surgeon with experience in this area should do the surgery.
Burning pain is legs are common because of continuous workout after a long time. This burning sensation is often at the top part of your thigh . This pain could some…times be unbearable and the most easiest and likely to relieve the pain is by keeping an ice pack. or running absolutely hot water on the thigh. Remember that this pain might last for a week.
Heel pain without any trauma is usually due to deficiency of caicium and vitamin D. Try it.

Use good cushion in shoes. Use local poultice with standard antiinflammatory Ayurvedic or Allopathic medicaments. Massage calf muscles.
answer from http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Does_a_root_canal_hurt I can only speak from my experience but I had a root canal done on a molar 2 years ago and it was easier… than a lot of fillings I've had done. Honestly I was more bored than anything since the appt takes awhile. I was really nervous going in since there is such a stigma around root canals but I swear it was one of my easiest dental experiences, except maybe on the wallet :) They can hurt, but it really depends who you go to. A root canal specialist or Endodontist treats inflamed, infected, painful teeth all day and everyday. They are experienced at giving profound numbness to all teeth and complete root canals more quickly which helps prevent tired and painful jaw muscles. If your jaw is very infected though and you go in with severe pain, anesthetic may not be as effective and you could experience some discomfort. This is another reason not to delay going to the dentist!
Yes, Suboxone also works as a painkiller. However, my experience has been that it does not work very well. I would like to add: Suboxone was originally designed to assist in r…educing drug withdrawal effects from addicts. Much like other drugs, it was discovered to have qualities to assist the brain in how it processes pain signals from the body. My pain mgmt doctor had me on so much hydrocodone and Oxycontin that I could not function. The suboxone is a sublime drug (dissolved under the tongue for the most direct route through your blood to the brain) that travels quickly and has immediate pain relief results but in order for it to be effective, it MUST BE MONITORED BY A PSYCHIATRIST THAT IS LICENSED SPECIFICALLY TO DISPENSE THE DRUG. This is because it is a 'level' drug and the Dr must increase/decrease the medication based upon pain relief and the body's reaction. At first, it will make someone drowsy-it is not a recreational drug! One minute a patient can be awake and coherent then fall asleep within seconds of sitting down-combining it with any of it's catalysts can be deadly. There are over 750 drugs that have negative interactions with Suboxone. I have a plate in my throat for a 5 disk fusion from breaking my neck, reconstructed leg, and phantom pain from ligament that were stripped from my leg. There is no way I would return to any other meds such as the hydros and oxys, or even vicadan. If I have a surgery I won't take them because a person has to be weened off of them (re-exposing yourself to pain) before rebuilding the suboxone. If a person is not feeling any results it is more likely that they are not taking the meds correctly. It needs to be placed in a dry mouth under the tongue, for the best results schedule doses during a time that you can lay flat (gravity will keep it from ending up in the stomach) for about 10 minutes (I meditate). The outcome is to get it into the soft tissue not the esophagus. Again I emphasize, this is a drug to use only when the others no longer work-alcohol will make the drug deadly!!!!
shoulder brace Alternatively, you could use a shoulder massager. Regular gentle massages work very well. The process would be slow, but very effective. Try different massage…rs before you decide on one. Make sure that it is not too hard on your shoulders. You could also go for medication, however medicines can only provide temporary relief from the pain. Consult a doctor anyway.
Well surgery hurts a bit of course and the chemotherapy makes the muscles ache all over. There are pills though that helps you with that.
No, unless it goes wrong (ie. stroke, fracture...).

The treatment for ankle pain varies according to the type of pain and injury the person is experiencing. iceing and using supportive bandages is a great start for all minor to… medium ankle pain. Splints are for more moderate pain, and in some cases crutches may be a good solution. Ibprofen is a great pain killer and will help reduce the swelling as well.

The best treatment will depend on the degree of pain, the location of the pain and the source of the pain. If you have body pain because of a broken rib, nothing short of a tr…ip to the doctor for high-power prescription pain medication and stabilization of the broken rib is going to work. In contrast, a simple "I overdid it today and now my body hurts from being more active than normal" can often be treated at home with a nice soak in a hot bath tub and a good night's sleep. There are a lot of treatments for body pain, ranging from medications to rest to manipulation therapies - I've listed some highlights below starting from do-it-yourself to seeking professional assistance. In general, I would suggest trying non-medication treatments before resorting to medications just because every drug does have a small risk of side effects. Some non-medication treatments for body pain include rest, relaxing in hot water (such as a jacuzzi, hot tub or just a bath tub with hot water) or applying heat (like a rice bag or an electric heating pad) or ice (a bag of frozen corn or peas, with the chunks broken up inside the bag, wrapped in a soft towel works well). If you have someone else around, you can try having that person massage the sore area, either with shallow or deep pressure, and with the option of massage oils if available and preferred. If you have access to a chiropractor or doctor, he/she can perform specific stretches or manipulations to release tension or realign joints. Medication options include most over-the-counter pain medications (Tylenol, Aleve, Advil, aspirin, Excedrin, Motrin, etc.) as well as some prescription medications like muscle relaxers or prescription pain relievers.
Be sure to stretch regularly. See a doctor or a chiropractor who will determine which moves will be best for you, and if you will need medication or surgery.
Some of the treatments for coccyx pain include ice packs to reduce inflammation, injections, anti-inflammatory drugs and surgery. Coccyx pain is pain in the tailbone.
