Voltarol!

Hi there,

I find Voltarol a god send for topical pain when you are an hour or so away from your next pain killer! :D Just helps ease the pain so you can get on with stuff.

I presume you mean the gel form (you can get it in lots of forms including suppositories :shock: )

Voltarol is an ant-inflammatory (non-steroidal) and so shouldn't work on FM pain since there isn't any inflammation. Might be worth finding out if you have something else going on Hay1ie ((xx))

voltarol

Voltarol tablets make me itch all over, i had to stop them. Found Maloxicam (Mobic) much easier to take and better pain control.

Could have been voltarol that made me itch too can't remember... I'm on Mobic too... for arthritis not FM.

Funnily enough Hay1ie, somewhere on here is a post from me raving about 5% Ibuprofen gel (probably similar?), which helps me when I've no other option.

My doctor reckons it's the massaging, rather than the actual gel, which helps - but it really is a handy emergency tool in my opinion.

I must try the voltarol gel to see if it's any better than my asda stuff.

Thanks for the tip

:D

I found this topic really interesting,as i use the voltarol gel,can't take the tablets,or any other painkillers.
Have already had hiatis hernia repair,and now have an ulcer because of all the tablets ive been put on over the years.

The voltarol helps on pressure points at bed time,enough for me to get to sleep,although i'm awake again by around 3 or 4 am,and have to keep moving as its painfull to lay in any one position for long.

I have osteo as well as fibro,and voltarol is a godsend for that,its much more powerful than ibruphrofen (SP)

Ive tried alsorts to relieve the pressure point pain at night,but not found anything to work for any lenght of time,have got a mattress topper,thats not worked either.

Have just bought an electric blanket for later in the year,hoping the warmth might help. :)

With FM you get Tender Points Elsa, pressure points are used in martial arts or massage. :)

I don't like pain because it hurts.

I wish I was tough as my cat, she removed her own stiches and never complains of hurts or pains.
