Hubby bought this for his elbows. He has tendonitis so bad that he needs surgery and refuses.
Didn't do a thing for his pain. Hopefully it will offer you some relief.
Wow, I sometimes I feel like I am wearing "sucker" on my forehead.
Oh well, guess it wont hurt to try it.
Tootie, I heard about a cream recommended by someone on Rachel Ray's show. It is called Topricin and I bought it at a local health food shop. It has some homeopathic ingredients, but I swear by it. I use it on fibro pain in hands, feet and knees. I bought a jar for my 86 year old dad, too, and he said he gets immediate relief.
Love and blessings to all!
I received this CT cream the dr recommended and have been using it for a day and a half. My rib cage has been extremely painful with the costo and after applying this cream, I have noticed a HUGE difference.The cream brings the blood supply to the surface of the muscles and tendons and that is what helps with the pain. I also used it on my foot that I injured and the black and blue is almost gone. It has Arnica in it, which is from a plant. It cost me 20.00 for a decent size jar, and so far, so good. It can be used as often as needed, especially before bedtime. I put it on my knees and hips and I have not had as much stiffness in the morning. Anyways, it is helping me
Whats nice about this cream is that there is virtually no smell. It has peppermint oil in it, but you cant really smell it. This is my third day now and I can tell you that my rib cage is 99% better!!!! My hips feel better and this morning when I got out of bed I could actually walk without limping. This is such a non-smelling cream I can wear it and no one can smell it, like with Ben Gay. I ordered 3 more jars of it this morning.
This is how it works for me and I am VERY VERY VERY HAPPY WITH IT.
Well, after 2 weeks of using this CT cream, I can actually say I am in far less pain than I have been in a very long time. I dont know why it works, but it sure does. I just ordered 3 more jars at a discount and talked to a representative about using this for Fibromyalgia. He said he has countless women calling for this cream to treat their Fibro.
He mentioned the Arnica that is in it, which is some kind of a plant. And that it takes away the pain, doesnt MASK it, but takes the edge off. It really takes the edge off for me, especially my hips, knees, shoulders and rib cage. I wish I could take a bath in it. Just wanted to let you know my Dr was right again and am glad he was
