I think I'll just do my own research into it then. That seems best when there's conflicting reports. Doing your own research and making your own informed decision.

Ask your Dr. About VOLTAREN GEL. I use it and it has worked wonders! It is VERY EXPENSIVE! Check your drug plan for coverage!

Had a great ole mare who had nerve damage in her neck-

trip, if your question refers to DMSO, 'results' would probably be the better word. IMO, and judging from my own experience, DMSO seems to fix the problem.

It helps, in the case of joint damage, rebuild the damaged cartilage or in muscle damage to repair the muscle tissue. It's not a 'maintenance' product. Don't use it as a routine. Just spot-treat an area of pain or soreness as it appears until it goes away. For minor joint pain it's usually just a couple of days.

Just like RiverRat wrote "5-6 years ago and I haven't had a problem since with that knee."

As an aside, my opinion as to why DMSO is not recognized by the medical industry is simply that it's not patentable. Therefore there is no money in it and no reason to spend the time and money to get it approved.

And as to 'liver damage' The first listed 'possible side effect' of almost every prescription drug is 'possible liver damage….' And people are swallowing them like M&M's.

We all have computers. Google 'DMSO.' Check it out.

I used to play beer league hockey with a guy who was trying DMSO for something. He read about it in regard to some NHL players using it. I do not remember how well it worked, but do remember how bad it smelled. Maybe it was mixing with the sweat, or maybe they have improved it since then (late 70s) but man that stuff was rank.

Nah! It still smells bad….and puts a funny taste in your mouth for a few minutes. it usually doesn't last long.
