    So, I get a package in the mail yesterday, consisting of two bottles of "pain foam" with ingredients like Gabapentin, Flurbiprofen, Cionidine, Cyclobenzaprene and Tramadol. Quite frankly, I don't know what to make of it. My doctor ordered it, never discussed it with me and I just don't know about putting this on my body. Has anyyone ever had this before? Did it work for them? I will say this. I was in a car crash the 23rd and broke my sternum. I AM in a lot of pain, but I am a minimalist when it comes to painkillers. Have been taking 1 oxycodone and 1 Celebrex a day. I try and just get through the pain the best I can, but I am never going to be a slave to painkillers again!

    My daughters neurologist ordered a similar cream for her, she has intense back/neck spasms. It is like a miracle cream, it takes the pain away in minutes.

    I have also tried on my tendonitis areas and it works great. Do not be afraid of it~

    I do not believe it can be additive like oxy, so I'd rather use the cream but would use what ever takes the pain away and for us, it was the cream

    More doctors should know about it and use it!

    Good luck!

    It's an excellent way to alleviate pain, help muscles return to their normal lengths, while increasing circulation. It can help reduce nerve pain when used properly. Hence, before using such products, make sure to consult your doctor.

    WOW. I have never heard of this before...and I am guessing it isn't available in the UK as I am sure it would be used. The only thing even remotely (but not) similar are the Versatis pain patches. They helped. A little bit. That must be SO painful to have broken your sternum. Are you in one of those extremely awkward brace things????

    I wanna know the name of this foam! Sounds really interesting! (Also sounds like it will be unavailable in the UK for probably another few years, sigh...)

    Pain can happen due to many reasons. Some of the reasons of the pain are any physical activity, wrong sleeping posture, age factor.

    I would say that for many of us, the luxury of not doing things, some including working, isn't always an option.

    For myself, I know I have OCD issues... And it's about cleaning. A hard one when you can't stop yourself... Knowing the pain will be worse and you keep on going... Because nobody else is going to do it!

    Just seeing this now... Compound pharmacies make the cream, you need an Rx for it
