I am terribly unlucky when it comes to genetics. Every bad thing I could have inherited from my parents, I have. I have worn glasses since 4th grade, I had thick but wispy red hair, I have toes that are probably going to turn in like my moms, brittle nails, and fair weather skin. The worst thing I have inherited though is my back pain. Years before I found out that I have scoliosis, I have had the worst back pain especially during my time of the month. Its almost debilitating when it gets really bad. I have tried hot compresses, back pads, heating pads, ice packs, etc. They do help but not for very long and I cant keep warming up my heating pad or applying product all day.
I was recently sent some Stopain Cold Gel. Of all the million things I have tried, it has worked wonders! It has lasted longer than the other products and it didn’t irritate my skin at all (sensitive skin-curse of being a redhead). I love how it didn’t feel oily on my skin at all either. It has a non-straining formula so if you get some on your clothes it is ok. It was cold, then warm, then it made the pain go numb. It stopped the pain almost completely. During a day I was having terrible pain, I was actually able to still run after the kids at the park after applying it. I also like the fact that it smells good. Usually products like this smell like my grandfather. I highly recommend Stopain Cold Gel. They also have a roll on version and a spray version. I think when I run out of the Gel, I will try the Spray version next!
