    I have very deep, gnawing pain, mostly in my upper back and neck

    I got so desperate, I tried Vicks Vapo Rub and it helps a little!!!! I am by no means free of the pain, but it tends to dull it some

    If you read the label, it does say for muscle aches. My dad used to use it for everything

    The smell is not great, but tolerable for me

    And my husband doesn't mind it - I just hate to go out in public with it on

    I also use Vicks, found it works as well as anything. My room smells like vicks but I don't mind the smell. Thought I was the only one that used it. I also use it across the top of my head and under my nose for congestion/sinus.

    God Bless,

    Hi great gran

    Yes, I use it for my sinuses too

    I also learned that if you have a dry cough, put Vicks on the bottom of your feet, and then put heavy socks over, and it helps with the cough a bit

    How are you feeling these days???
