unpaid/unsolicited review: Topricin Topical cream

I have a spinal cord disease called Syringomyelia, as well as major degeneration, herniation, and spurring in most of my disc and vertebrae.  However, I also have a job in which I am required to stand on a concrete floor for 3 hours at a time.

Despite insoles, exspensive shoes, bath soaks, medications and massage I still had neuropathic pain in my hands and feet that kept me awake at night after a day of work.

So while at a grocery in, New York I was picking up a prescription and a friend working in the organic section heard my dog had a paw wound and gave me several samples of Topricin Junior to use on him, and several regular Topricin to use on me.

I was skeptical using it on myself, until I saw my dogs wound close up and heal in just 2 days.  So while getting ready for bed one night I saw the samples of Topricin and thought "Why not?" thinking if nothing it might moisturize but pretty certain a topical cream could not could help  my neuropathy.

It wasn't until 5 minutes after rubbing it in while holding my book I realized my hands no longer hurt.  Curious, I took another sample of Topricin and rubbed it on my feet and low back.

5 minutes later the pain in my heels and shoulders subsided.

I was impressed but wanted to see if it would work again.

So today (second day of being on my feet all day) I put it on my feet, shoulders, and low back.  Five minutes later my pain went from a 8-10 to a 4-10.  Color me convinced.

So my friends with Fibromyalgia, Syringomyelia, Neuropathy, or back pain give this a try it works.

This serious skeptic, is converted.
