My favorite for pain and inflammation is Biofreeze but, on our last trip I ran out. So I bought some ActivOn and it works pretty well too. In the car I turn on the heated seats. I always use them in the winter but, in the summer too if I can't stand the pain (just crank up the ac). My last on is to put rice in either an old sock (make sure that it doesn't have any holes) or old knee-high pantyhose. Tie the end and put in the microwave until the rice is warm. This seems to work better than a heating pad.

I also use the above suggestions, especially the heated seats in the winter. I like to soak in a very warm tub of water with epson salts for about 20 minutes. Adding water if needed to keep it lwarm, as I don't have a whirlpool tub yet. :( I like to use the Icy Hot pain patches on my neck when I am home, and if I am going out I use the bengay that has no odor during a flare up. Would love to hear other's ideas. Mair

Hi, I have tried all these things and nothing works. I will try the rice in a bag, because my only relief is my heating pad. I need more help if possible, I'm dying inside cuz I lost my life, and dam it, I WANT IT BACK!
