I frequently have painful knees from hiking and I bought this to see if it would improve the symptoms. I have had mixed results, both with this and the more concentrated form. This is only one part of my joint health regimen, and not one that I feel compelled to use regularly.
If I apply it after cool-down from exercise, usually I'll get a feeling of "warmth", followed by the pain fading away along with the warmth. Unfortunately, it doesn't always seem to penetrate past the skin, so the deep pain remains. If I apply it while still at all sweaty from exercise, I get the sensation that my knees are literally on fire and then I get a massive endorphen rush from the pain. I do not feel the mild euphoria is worth the extreme discomfort.
Two warnings: 1) Do NOT APPLY either before or immediately after a hot shower. It got sucked into my pores and hair follicles and was painful beyond belief. Wait until your skin is a normal temperature. 2) Wash hands VERY WELL after applying, or use gloves - it will make you hurt elsewhere if you aren't careful.
Still, when I have throbbing knees even after supplements and anti-inflammatories and ice, I add this in and sometimes it helps. Sometimes it doesn't. The stronger version of this still scares me a bit, so I've got to be REALLY sore before I reach for that.
I have developed very painful elbows this fall...I don't know if it's arthritis, tendonitis or what, but I was just looking for something to ease the pain especially during the night. I bought this product at the grocery store and put it on around 4:30 yesterday afternoon. Within an hour, the feeling of heat was so intense that I checked my skin for blisters. It was way more painful than the original ailment for which I bought the cream. This sensation has continued now for going on 16 hours! I couldn't put my elbows under the covers last night...it felt like it would if you covered a burn. I have tried washing the area but to no avail. The burning feeling is so intense it's almost unbearable and I generally have a high tolerance for pain. I will never, ever use this product again!
