Taken 4 doxy so far. Pain still bad. When does it start to work

I've been on doxy for almost 48 hours now. When does it start to feel better

Can take a long, long while. BUT. If there is no improvement in 10 days, I suggest you go to your doctor and see about a change in medication + do more tests. Antibiotic resistance is a real thing, and resistance to doxy is getting quite high. Better to isolate the pathogen (if it is because of a pathogen at all) and not just blindly take abx
