Hi, I am new, and just was reading all the ideas and tools people use, but no one mentioned this pain gel. I have used it since 2003 when I hurt my back and got a tear in my L-5 disc. It takes the edge off the pain, is topical, and natural. It does not smell like Bengay, Tiger Balm, or Flexall, etc, either & its better than Blue Goo, Biofreeze, and everything else I have tried over the years.
I get mine from the local medical supply store, but in CA and AZ when I lived there, I picked it up at my Chiropractor office. I don't see a chiropractor any more since moving to TX 2 yrs ago, but the one I went to in AZ was awesome. It is also sold under another name of Sore No More but it is the same stuff.
I have sciatica on left hip, that when at its worst goes down both legs, and down one to the foot and I limp. The sombra will allow me to function too!
Today I found out my results of recent MRI that the severe neck pain I have suddenly gotten and numbness and pain in my hands, fingers, and arms is all caused from a bulging C-3 & C-4 disc, and disc degeneration. So not looking forward to seeing a Neurologist.. but that will be next month probably before appointment is scheduled for that.
I am amazed at the amount of drugs they gave me today... Neurontin (Gabapentin), Naproxen, Vicoden, and Microzide (Hydrochlorothiazide) for swelling.
I am not familiar with most of these, and am hoping the side affects will be worth it. Anyone have experience with these?
I took the Neurontin for 3 weeks back in June, I was unable to think, barely walk, and was a total ditz.. unable to drive or function like a normal person, but this time I was told by this doctor to stick with it, and wear a hand brace at nite to help me sleep (from the pain that swirls up my hand, fingers, arm and shoulders)
I hadn't planned on sharing so much.. fingers going numb... will check back later..
