Sometimes, it is so intense, that I physically recoil, or flinch from the stab. I can make it stop by taking ibuprofen
If it isn't too intense, I usually just tolerate it, and it eventually goes away on its own. If it is too bothersome, I take 400mg of ibuprofen, and that usually stops it. As I said, when it appears in a spot, it stays there. Weeks or months later, when it reappears, it may be a different spot, but then that is where it stay until it goes away by itself or with drug help.
