    Someone posted about EMLA cream that you can put on, let it set and it numbs pain.

    I looked it up and it said it just numbs the skin - so my question is can it also provide relief from deep muscle pain and stiffness????

    That would be a HUGE help for me and also to allow the trigger point massage as mentioned too.

    I use an assortment of over the counter pain creams. I damaged my shoulder in the late winter and find it helps a little with pain.

    I also have trigger areas where it seems to help a little.

    I haven't used any, but I sure could use some.
    I know that some of the other creams (not 'numbing' per se),although topical, do help with deeper than skin pain.

    My Mom used to use Capzasin (sp?)for severe pain and it did help some, also Biofreeze.

    I truthfully didn't know they made a "numbing" cream, but have often sat here thinking I want some numbing cream!!! So where do I get it??
