Check with your doc: Many olympic athletes take pain medication before they compete because they know that they will have pain afterwards. However, for most people this is not a good idea. Side effects are always an issue!

No: You should never use pain medicine unless you need it. Then if you need it you should know why you have the pain in the first place. Just using pain medicine is dangerous and can be harmful to you!

Your body can remember it had pain but not remember the pain. Ther is no such thing as "pain memory" that would need medication .
