Over a year ago my doc recommended a gel called Voltaran100. It's been a miracle drug for me and others I recommded to also. Ask your doc about it. It really works to alleviate the pain of FMView Thread
When you go to your doc. ask him about Voltaren Gel 100 mg. I've been using it for my FM and it works beautifully to eliminate my pain. I swear by it. It's a miracle drug. I've told other friends who also have FM and they, too, swear by it. So be sure to ask your doc about it:)View Thread
Dear Anon. I went through the same kind of painful hell you've been going through. After trying every drug on the market for my fibromyalgia, m rheumatologist finally found the magic bullet. She prescribed a gel called Voltaren Gel 1% 100 g. As soon as I rubbed it on my sore spots (my hips and my back), the pain went away INSTANTLY. I couldn't believe it. Voltaren was initially created to help people with arthritis in their hands but it helps people with fibromyalgia. I recommended it to 4 different friends who suffer from it and they couldn't believe how quickly it worked to stop their pain. I suggest you talk to your doctor and see what he has to say about it. It's relatively new on the market so not all docs are familiar with it yet, but believer me, IT WORKS! Good luck.View Thread
