I swear, it hurts more every time. (Or possibly I just forget how much it hurt the last times.)
Finally we're going to deal with it once and for all: In a month, once the infection is cleared up for sure, I'm going to go in for minor/outpatient surgery to get the nailbed killed. Hopefully it will stop growing back after that, so will no longer be able to cause problems.
Sure does hurt right now. Only drugs I get afterwards is over the counter stuff. It's throbbing and hurting pretty bad.
