Re: OTC pain relief ??
I've had some luck with Aspercreme on the joints, but prescription Voltaren is much stronger.
I also use a mild menthol-based gel immediately before bedtime. It doesn't work for long, but it generally lets me sleep.
I also hate getting it places it shouldn't be, so I buy the kind with the fancy you-don't-have-to-touch it applicators and then cover with a shirt. I can only put it on my back and hips, too, anywhere else it burns too much.

Reason: Add stuff.
