Hi forum pals. I just wanted to share this with you. I'm working with the accpuncturists and she's really helping me. I'm feeling a lot better, problems are still there, yes, but the level of pain is way down.
 
She has me taking Yunnan Baiyao and while it smells gross and tastes worse if you burp, it gives me more pep and energy.
 
The one thing I wanted to share in this forum is the Zhitong Gao patches for pain relief. It's not Tiger Balm, it's something else that smells horrid but works so darn well, I had to share it with you. I find my tender and painful spots, put the pads on (it's like medicated duct tape) and there's a great deal of relief. I didn't know if anyone else wanted to give it a shot but I'm sharing the info in case it's useful to anyone. It's wintergreen oil, camphor and menthol but it's a nice combo. I don't know why it smells so bad.

It is so good to hear you say that!!! Sometimes stepping out of the box of Western Medicine and trying something "alternative" can produce amazing results!! Keep feeling better. The smell may be due to the resin gum or the clove oil in those patches. I now have some on order for myself!!!

I'm glad to hear that. I hope they help you too. Please let me know what you think. For the major areas where I have pain, my neck, I use the entire patch. But I've taken lately to cutting them into smaller patches so I can use them on the hot spots. I haven't done it enough times to know whether tha'ts good or pad. I'd love to know what you think of them. I'm not sure about the smell, it could be the tape but it's smells like the medicine she gives me, even though she said the stuff is not at all the same. Maybe you can figure it out. Oh, I wear my patches for 24 hours, they work a really long time and hurt like hell when you rip them off...worth it to me just to have the pain levels down. :)
