Dissolve 1.5 heaping tablespoons of Folgers instant coffee in a half-cup of water and swallow it quickly. This viscous sludge dilates constricted blood vessels and reduces pain time from 45-55 minutes to 10-15. I'm blessed with a titanium-lined stomach. I wouldn't try it otherwise.
The second method, which also requires a titanium stomach lining, is to pin-pierce one end of 4 or 5 Advil gelcaps and squirt the fluid into the lower palate. Leave it there until the bitter taste and slight burning sensation are no longer tolerable, swallow, and chase with a 1/2 glass of water. This is a poor man's sub-lingual med, and like the first technique, provides relief in 10-15 minutes.
