Has anyone heard about using a topical pain reliever like Ben Gay or Rub A535? I am having a lot of leg pain due to Charlie-Horses from cramps in the night. I have a spinal cord injury (I just walk with a cane), and the medications I usually take 6 times per day are to relieve the spasms that a spinal cord injury creates anyhow in your legs. But, off the meds AND pregnant, I am just dying! I have a permanent sore muscle on the inside of my leg just above my knee. My dh is a weight-lifter and thought this would help, but I wanted to seek any knowledge or rumors about the stuff first. I'll ask my doctor too when I see him in a few weeks.
Thanks ladies! EDD Oct 1/03
