    You were doing some exercise today and decided to ride your bike. While out riding you hit a rock, went flying over the handle bars, and landed on your back. Now you are all sore as you walk home. When you get home you decided to take  some Tylenol to relieve your pain. Being a good student you reflect back to pharmacology and ponder how Tylenol is able to relieve you pain. You are happy and feel so smart because you know that Tylenol….
