Drugs are available to treat the pain. They reduce the amount of time that you have to live with the pain.You are taking one of these drugs.
If you are in the no-drug condition, you will have more pain. If you are in the new-drug condition, you will probably have less pain. The new-drug could remove all the pain, or none of it, or anywhere in between. The best guess is that the new drug will cut your pain in half.
