I just have to share this because I am excited about this. I went to a new dr, an M.D. Naturopath to see if she can help more with the hypothyroid & run some adrenal tests for me. I've had the fibromyalgia aches & more recently pain in joints & in bones that have been broken. I've also started having migraines. I asked her is their anything she could suggest to releave these darn headaches because everything the neurologist had given me either doesn't work or in the case of Ultracet (Tramadol) works, but makes me feel dopey & sick to stomach. Well she wrote a script for ketoprofen cream to get from the compounding pharmacy. The pharmacist told me he used it on his arthritic knuckles. I was a bit leary, but it turns out the stuff really DOES work! With it being a cream it bypasses going through body, so doesn't cause stomach upset or lung supression (in asthmatics like me) unlike oral ketoprofen. For the headaches you rub it on back of neck, or on the temples. I've put it on my sore aching big toe, my thumb I sprained recently and on my back that was hurting when I got outta bed this morning. The stuff works! I just had to tell about it in case others hurt as much as I do and can't take regular oral NSAIDS for various reasons. I let my friend try just a small squirt of it and her headache went away too!
Does Ultracet make your husband feel a little woo-woo? It does me that way. It is the only thing, besides the ketoprofen cream, that has made the migraines go away, but I'm trying not to take the Ultracet unless I have too. I read the stuff is addicting.
