Thanks for your question.
There are a couple of things which you can consider in addition to medication.
You should apply ice compresses to the painful areas for 5 to 10 minutes at a time every 2 hours.
You need to put your hand, wrist and forearm in a sling and keep them elevated.
Regarding medication you can take a maximum dose of 2400 milligrams of Ibuprofen in divided doses . For example you can take 600mg Ibuprofen every 6 hours.
In addition you can take tylenol one gram every 6 hours for a maximum dose of 4 grams in a day.
You may also consider using a biofreeze spray.
Feel free to ask any follow up questions.
Do take a moment to honour my work and time by rating my answer hopefully 5 stars.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
