 5  Knees None This drug enables me to be much more physically active with less dependence on pain relievers. I can bike at fairly high levels of intensity for as much as 25 miles. I haven't tried longer but I'm sure I could and getting to that level was a great accomplishment. I have had 6 knee surgeries including 2 partial replacements. Use it before exercise. Reapply after shower and before bed. Highly recommended! It has not eliminated the need for oral pain meds in all situatations but has helped. M 56 18 months

 1  Hip bursitis I only used it 3X but developed kidney pain each time and elevated BP. Within an hour of the last time I applied it, my heart rate jumped to 106 & my BP 145/95. I also experienced horrible anxiety. I thought I was going to have heart attack or stroke. F 51 1 days

 5  joint pain in wrist and shoulder My God,this stuff is great! Used on my extremely painful shoulder and within minutes felt relief.(I thought it might be the Advil I had taken earlier kicking in) However, several days later,had a flare with joint pain in wrist. Squeezed out a few drops and rubbed it in and pain relief was almost immediate.I read that this is prescribed for knee pain but my doctor gave me a sample because the voltaren has worked ok for me and I can't take Advil a lot because of the gastro effects. Boy,I love this stuff and will ask for a script next time I see the Rheumy. F 52 2 days
