I just put Bio-Freeze on the back of my neck where the muscles and vertebrae are complaining mightily about the books I hauled around last night at home. We are cleaning out our study because painters are coming in tomorrow. (Painting, that's yet another thing I can't do anymore. Oh, darn.) It's unreal how many books we have. Giving away most, actually throwing away some that are damaged or obsolete. Anyway, I used Triflora gel, which helped a bit, and tried the Bio-Freeze. It at least distracts the pain signals for awhile. It's a good product, and worth trying. Just don't touch your eyes or other sensitive areas after it's been on your hands! Just my 2 cents plain. Beth.
