Common Questions and Answers about Voltaren gel and children


Avatar f tn Two days ago my rheumatologist stared me on Voltaren and I am pain free for the first time in one year....I am afaid to get my hopes up as this seems too good to be true....I know this mediation can be hard on the stomach so I am going to make sure that I always take it with food...so far I feel great all the way around but it is only 2 days....Comments anyone ? ...Thank you..
1798322 tn?1315709146 I use Voltaren gel, and it does help. Soaking in the tub can help tremendously, and also ask about ThermaCare back wraps and if they're okay to use during pregnancy. (Some people think ice works best; I personally find heat better.) The ThermaCare wraps work for about 8 hours. You can wear them under clothes or to bed. Sometimes you need to string a bunch of things together to get some relief from pain.

Avatar n tn i am a 55 year old woman who has extreme anxiety and depression and worry constantly about everything, my children who are all having big big issues in life and my husband who has all sorts of problems can't even go into them all and i just have so many health problems i feel like a complete nuerotic basket case.
Avatar m tn I have lost my zest for life, my energy for my children and also my romantic relationship with my wife has obviously been affected in more ways than one. I feel absolutely trapped and hopeless in my situation. I wish I could just be locked up in a rehab somewhere for a month but I also lost my job and cannot afford rehab as I have heard they are quite expensive for a live in program which is what I definitely would need. I wake up to pills, go to bed with pills and all I think about are pills.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar f tn It scared the hell out of me and that is when I stopped cold turkey. I still have pain issues but use something called Voltaren gel which help take the pain down just a notch for me to function. It is an NSAID in gel form (topical) and it does help. Keep yourself focused on taking back your life instead of the drugs. Find a reason why you want to detox and stick with the plan. Yes the vitamins help along with hot baths, hydration and a health state of mind that you want to do this.
Avatar f tn He'd been through pt but was still hurting. She did an injection and voltaren gel but no drugs. He even had to sign a contract. Btw, I would not have agreed to him going on pain meds like we do. Way too young. I just took him in for the injection.
Avatar m tn As you read you can determine if the PCP has an interest in your symptoms and history. Some you'll see are focused in women and their children - or a focus that just isn't you. I look for Internal Medicine physicians. I see you reside in KY. They hate opiates in KY - almost more than they do here in FL. My sister is a high level management RN in KY. I know there are some great PCPs there - and I also know there are some not-so-good ones. I guess that's true no matter where you reside.
Avatar f tn props to you, sister. I use Voltaren Gel and it works wonders for my hands, neck and back between pain med doses when I'm hurting. I don't know if that's ok with pregnancy or not. I know that it was mentioned on here before. I have also tried the Lidocaine patches, but had pretty poor luck getting them to stick and just about crapped my pants and the price when I went to pick up my rx at the pharmacy. They are pretty spendy. But worth a try if you have good coverage? Other than that...
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and welcome to Part 50! Wow part 50. Please make yourself at home. Snuggle down. It'll be a bumpy ride but I know you Tramadol Warrirors can do it!
Avatar f tn I am wearing mountains of clothes in a 72 degree house and am freezing as if I were in an ice cave! I found that using Voltaren Gel on painful body areas helps somewhat but it is very very messy and as soon as you put it on in one area the deep aches just move elsewhere in your body. I feel like I am dying! I'm not depressed. I am just very uncomfortable. I am actually quite proud of myself that I have come this far. Voltaren Gell is only available by RX.
10205477 tn?1409582191 My neck and shoulders are my bad parts...so I feel for you. Ask also for Voltaren Gel which is an anti-inflammatory...No one of these things will help completely. It usually takes a combination....for instance a Lidoderm patch and a couple of tylenol or advil. A good rubdown with the gel with some heat applied afterwards. You get the idea. Good Luck!
363110 tn?1340924019 I've noticed that both the Voltaren Gel and naproxen don't help for extended periods of time that is for sure. And I have tried the lidocaine patches and lidocaine ointment and both offer pain relief that is very short in duration. But the lidocaine injections that they use during epidural procedures work so much better! I guess it is because they inject it deep under the skin and tissues.
Avatar n tn I use ibuprofen, Lidoderm patches, Voltaren gel, heat, ice, exercise and more. You are getting great advice here from people who have successfully stayed off their DOC. You can do that as well. Listen to the people who've done this successfully. Aftercare is tremendously important. How are you feeling today being out of the hydrocodone? What are you going to do differently this time? Do you have a counselor?
Avatar m tn Anyway, after I got tired of just the up and down feeling and the irritability especially when it came to my children and always feeling distracted on them and for a GEMINI such a dry personality and off in my own little world using these for energy. Toward the end when I realized I wasn't only using them for pain , I was using them for energy and to get things done! I dropped down to just breaking them in half and down to 2 a day then one a day and then finally said I'm OVER THIS!!!
Avatar n tn I have had cortisone shots, pain medicines, naproxen, cymbalta , sulandac, Vicodin, Tylenol products, Tens unit, ice/heat therapy, biofreese cream, voltaren gel , I have lived with the Illness for too long effecting my well being . It hurt from head to toe not being able to hold my coffee cup in my hand to the muscles In . My walk arms hurting me so badly I can not put my clothes on some days??
Avatar m tn I have had to deal with this a few times over the last 30 odd years. 2-3 times for myself and with my children. First off this is not the ordinary itch that comes with a sunburn. That is the thing that people who have never experienced it cannot understand! They think you are weak or a wimp and have to "suck it up." This itch and the pain it causes, is probably the worst thing I have ever had to deal with in my life!! I have found 1 thing that had worked...
Avatar n tn You know, I live in Boise, Id and it is REALLY dry here. So much so, I get nosebleeds and have to take guifenesen and evoxac to keep eyes in tears and nose moist enough, yet still have terrible pain. You could visit an area for a few weeks to see if your pain improves before moving there. Where are you? Warm does sound good right now. We actually have snow on the ground. I've lived in Tucson and it is a very big city, has some nice parts, and probably isn't as pricey as SD.
Avatar n tn I have had two episodes whereby I am unable to straighten up, feel like passing out with sweats all over my body. The pain is excruciating. I have had four children and do not remember the pain as severe as these thigh cramps. I find rubbing a heating pad on my legs helps. I thought it might be coming from exercising as I do exercise, and quite strenously, six days per week.
Avatar n tn I had an epidural w/ the birth of both of my children and last September I had a spinal tap followed by a blood patch (basically like an epidural where they inject blood into your dural space to patch a Cerebral Spinal Fluid leak caused from the spinal tap). All of these "pokes" in my back were done in the exact same region of my Lumbar spine. Cooincidentally, that is exactly where my pain radiates from every night during sleep.
Avatar f tn Just to answer a few questions ... Never had any children never mind an epidural, no carpal tunnel, no headaches, no lumps and no side effects on Neurontin. I've never had allergies before but I'm pretty convinced this is brought on by something in the environment. It is VERY seasonal for me (August/September to February/March). A long time. I live in a moderate climate where it's never really hot and it rarely goes below freezing (Victoria, BC, think Seattle).
Avatar f tn We didn't know that the woman's children went to the same school as my daughter, and here I was blurting out how incompetent the administration and some of the teachers were, so that got us off to a bad start. The neurologist (they work in the same office) had her tested not for ADD (since she has a lack of focus and can't concentrate - typical lyme symptoms), but for medical reasons. Her tests came back that she failed worse than an alzheimer patient and had emotional issues!
Avatar m tn He may be fine for a day a week or a month, and then all the sudden he says he feels like he's weak and dizzy and feels like someone is poking his heart with a needle, his arm near his arm pit with hurt. He burps alot and it releaves some of the discomfort. Various other things as well. Generally he said he gets a "funny" feeling throughout his body. We went to the doctor years ago for it, and all they told us was it was because he had a fever of 98.9,(fever?)!!
Avatar n tn I have had the same issues listed above but only since my children were born (the first 4 yrs ago). I am 36yrs old and I have found that I have to do very intensive core exercising to get that area very strong which relieves my issues. I am currently alternating between Gunner Peterson's Core Strength and Turbo Jam. Hard excersing but worth the relief. Also if I am sore in the morning, I use a heating pad before I get up and that helps tremendously. Good luck!!!
Avatar n tn The appearing of my skin tag is small, nontheless unsightly and somewhat bothersome when cleaning after a bowel movement. And I would like to have it surgically removed as I do not know of anything else that can be done to remove it. Please describe in detail the type of surgery that would be involved to have it removed. How is pain level? I heard it was excruciating. How long is the recovery period?
Avatar n tn I have had MRI's done of the Cervical spine(neck region) and Lumbar spine (lower back) I have a lg hernated disc in my neck and degenetive disc disease with an annular tear in my lower back. I am going to also request my doctors to do an MRI of Thoracic spine (middle back) because they haven't done an MRI of that section yet. I am not sure if the mid back problems is caused by these issues I know I have. I would suggest you dig into the problem more.
