Im a chronic pain patient and have been for the past five years regarding ruptured disk that are pressing on the S1 nerve root. Also as of recent I have been in terrible pain with 3 peri-anal absecces that have now caused a 5 inch fistula. Prior to the abscesses, working out believe it ot not helped the chronic back pain and now that I am forced to lay up and rest I have discovered Voltaren Gel. This stuff is amazing guys, and anyone in chronic pain should consider trying this stuff out! Just wanted to let those who suffer know.

I tried it, but it didn't work for me. Everyone is different though. Just so you know, there is a warning now for Voltaren because it can cause liver damage I believe. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hello and welcome! I just joined a couple weeks ago, and this forum and all its users are truly a God-sent. I'm sorry about your pain, and I can really relate to being young with chronic pain. I'm 29, and was diagnosed with RSDS/CRPS in 2001 when I was only 20 years old. It really sucks not living life to its fullest potential when all of your friends and colleagues are out there living it up. I'm glad you found something that works for you. Maybe I'll give it a try...

Hello,

I posted about this gel a little while ago and found it to be a great help for my knuckles. My husband did not find it to be helpful for him at all and actually had a reaction to it. It just goes to show that each of us is so different. After reading the insert on it, I found that it was not recommended for the spine or some other places. I only used it on my hands, but like I said earlier, it was a "wondermed" for me. The "flare" has passed now, so I can't say if it will work again next time, but one can only hope.

Best to you!
