    I only use Bengay when I go to Denny's, so I smell like the rest of the crowd....

So use it VERY sparingly if you try it. I found SalonPas did nothing. Anything with Lidocaine seems to help. And a friend suggested Blue Emu brand, though I have yet to try it,/
    Isn't it odd how a thing works for one person and not another? Salonpas gives me instant relief of pain. I have Blu Emu as well and it worked for me like Salonpas.

    I just got off a website www.consumerhealthdigest.com. It had a product called "Flexdermal" as the best for joint & muscle pain and another product as second best called "Blue Goo".
    Never heard of either of them so I can't say anything. It is ironic, I sold my 2004 pickup truck 6 months ago because the little odds and ends needing repair. Now I see it kind of like me!!

    Everything is temporary relief....but my favs are: Topricin, Aspercream w/Lidocraine, DMSO and some others...I use essential oils too: rosemary, oil of oregano and some others help pain.

    OP: Tried Celebrex is a script but I know Quack doc would endorse it. I thought about it and can't afford it and a similar drug years ago gave me a stomach ulcer. But some like Celebrex.

    Have you never tried to heal the small ulcer. I had one back in the 80's and was given Tagamet in the ER and now it's otc. Keep a box in my supply stock but have not taken any for years.

    Plain old aspirin. I use the cheap generic ones which work just as well as the more expensive brand names.

    Traumeel for muscle and joint pain relief. It is a homeopathic remedy that brings relief without any side effects. I use the tablets but an ointment and a gel are also available.

    @ StarSong...for osteoarthritis I obtain almost instant relief with a homeopathic product known as Rhus Tox. They are tiny pellets taken under the tongue.

    Arnica. I like to use the arnica gel, not the creams. Also take the pills.

    Both very good for not only sore muscles, but bruises. I rammed my toes into a bench leg two nights ago and after a few hours my toe looked awful and was so sore I couldn't put a shoe on.

    The gel and pills really help, only bothered me a little today.

    I love love some homeopathics and use some, but for very advanced OA in joints, not so effective. I buy an arnica gel and rub in my thigh which also has a lot of nerve damage from hip replacement surgery complications. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    for muscle pain its Arnica gel by Roberts Research Labs....nice scent also....the other gels dont cut it like this one
    I cant take any ibuprofen at all....and tylenol barely works for me....
    Just realized Aspercreme doesnt contain aspirin anymore so I can use it more often....havent tried it with the Lidacaine yet.....

    The March winds are the morning yawn while Springtime is awakening soon...

    Great stuff. I use it on my left knee, which has been scoped twice and now is close to needing a knee replacement.
