Deepfreeze: it's loving spray menthol. That's it. Think it'd be cheaper just to buy some Vicks Vapo-Rub and use that.

Voltaren: numbs things down a little but not much better than menthol for me.

Gold Bond Pain and Itch Cream with Lidocaine: Useless against chronic pain for me, but does take care of itchy patches ok.

Aspercreme with Lidocaine Maximum Strength: see Deepfreeze and Voltaren.

Organic Hemp Seed Oil: actually effective, actually brings arthritis pain level down instead of masking it with an endothermal reaction. Doesn't get rid of it completely but so far better than everything else I just listed in terms of actually helping, you do have to work it in a bit though and especially work it in at the joints. Thanks for mentioning it. Edit: more effective when used regularly rather than just during flareups.

also voltaren isn't a numbing/cooling/heating agent at all, it's an nsaid. when taken orally its called diclofenac. it's weird that you're classifying it with menthol cream, tiger balm, etc

i'm gonna try hempseed oil

used properly it can be as effective as taking the drug but has significantly less side effects. although can still cause stomach issues in the most sensitive people.

also this is maybe obvious or not but it works best when whatever is close to the skins. think knees not hips.

donít skimp on the dose. this is the kind of thing I recommend people start on a high dose, get the benefit, then reduce to see how little you can get away with.

It was all respectful like, at a soda fountain. They were dicking around and I must have looked impatient or pissed off or something. Contrary to popular perception most teens are respectful and polite and poo poo.

Dumb, but was thinking of old poo poo. Anyone else's local TV stations use the flag raising on Iwo Jima as their station sign off?

My niece and nephew were watching poltergeist and I had to explain that it was exposition on how late at night this little girl was up staring at the TV.

I'm putting Voltroneranon or whatever with the balms because for me it's literally just a tiny bit more effective than them. I got some and put it on and 20 minutes later I'm back to the same level of pain as when I started; might work fine for some people but deffo not for me.

I worked in a palmful into my hands around 1:30 this afternoon and it's 7:38 now and the pain level is still quite reduced. I didn't get as much on my left hand as I did my right and it's only starting to feel stiff again now. They still smell of the hempseed but 1) it's not a super unpleasant odor and 2) I'll take the slight odor in exchange for the reduction in pain.

Idk much about topical, but I highly recommend hemp seed oil as a supplement.

anecdotal evidence is mean to be bogus but so many people make their way back to the pharmacy just to tell me it works .. 🤷‍♂️

It does something if you take enough of it. Prior to having my cervical fusion I had to stop nsaids. I'd get these gnarly rythmic tremors where I couldn't use my thumbs if I moved my neck wrong without naproxen. I wound up taking like 250mg-350mg a day if the label was accurate. No tremors, and my spasticity was better as well.

i basically read as soon as i could so i could ignore them and i definitely remember liking this book of really well written fairy tales - tons of classics and things i'd never heard of before, like mostly older european versions. my mother was so embarrassed by this idea she kept trying to steal it from me

honestly i like the area where i grew up but the people are pretty rough. i used to have a really small little handheld telescope that i'd try and go look at the stars at. my sister and father would come out and shine flashlights down the end when i was looking through it and then ask me if i'd seen the moon

Well it's a lot less ridiculous when you consider the omnipresent, relentless societal messaging about youth and beauty and their relation to a woman's worth as a human being and even that is a fuckin monkey's paw situation
