    as soon as vs as early as

    In most cases, I clearly understand the difference between as soon as and as early as, but this one is tripping me up.

    Pain relief was evident as soon as 30 minutes.
    Pain relief was evident as early as 30 minutes.

    I am leaning toward the first, but I am keep questioning it. I appreciate any insight.

    Thank you.
