My wife has arthritis and fibromyalgia and she takes Soma at night to help with the pain and sleep. They have these things called Therma Care or something like that. They are pads that keeps heat going to wherever you apply them for eight hours. I hope you know what I mean. Arthritis and Fibromyalgia also effects the muscles and nerves. She takes a hot shower before bedtime and I massage her shoulders, back of her neck with Aspercream. She applies it to her hands. Our pharmacy has what is called Perform, that comes in a cream or a roll on container like under arm deodorant. It has an odor to it but disapates quickly. You don’t say what meds you are taking, but my wife takes MS Contin 45 Mg’s 3 times a day and some Percocets. She also takes 300 mg’s of Nuerontin for nerves ends. Without these drugs, she wouldn’t be able to move. But if you could do it, exercise is the best thing for arthritis. Do to other problems, she can’t even do that. I know what you are going through and I wish I could tell you some miracle cure, but there just isn’t any. I’ve checked. So I wish for you the very best and let’s keep hoping that sometime in the near future, they find a cure. Arthritis and it’s discomforts is something that you are just going to have to live with. Maybe exercise will help you, it would be worth a try. Good luck.

Do a web search for information on the product DMSO to research its use and effects. It is sold as a prescription lineament (if your doctor will prescribe it) or OTC as a solvent. It is widely used in livestock as a lineament for joint issues. Many people say it is the best arthritis relief they have found if you read about it on the internet. I believe it is the pure form of MSM, and absorbs through the skin. You can get the lineament for about ten dollars from a farm supply store in the horse section.
