"I love this stuff. I have suffered with chronic pain for 33 years. That is no exaggeration. It all began when I was 27 and after two years of suffering, I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Then about 20 years ago I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. About that same time, I began experiencing soft-tissue foot pain (tendinitis and plantar fasciitis) and it has gotten worse over the years, and now it has morphed into tendinosis. Lately, now that I am 59, I have been experiencing worsening symptoms of all these issues due to aging. I wish I could say I have found the 'magic bullet' that would make all my pain disappear, but I can't do that. However, I have found a few things that make my daily journey a little easier. One of those things is Penetrex. This stuff really does help, even if only temporarily. It helps with fibromyalgia, it helps with osteo, and it even helps with my excruciating tendinosis foot pain. I rub it in, and within minutes, sometimes almost immediately, my pain subsides. I like to use it at bedtime because the pain relief helps me sleep.
It doesn't last 24 hours a day, but it does last a good while. You can use it often throughout the day. It has no nasty smell. I like the consistency of it, it is not too thick or too thin. It is a tad greasy, which is my only complaint. But when you are in a lot of pain, you can overlook some things. Overall, I highly recommend this product to those who suffer from mild to moderate, even some severe pain. It may not help everyone, but I was really surprised at how quickly it helped me and how effective it is on even my worst pain. I know it's expensive, but how can you put a price tag on pain relief, even if its only temporary? I would say, try one jar and just see what happens. Look at all the reviews, and check it out for yourself.
And trust me, I would not be wasting my time with this review if I didn't mean every word I have said here. This stuff helps me, I hope it helps you too." —Julie K. Nichols
