Review of Deep Heat Rub by 2mennycds

Advantages: Effective for mild aches & pains or as partial solution
Disadvantages: Smells; irritates eyes if accidental contact made

Sometimes, even after a fairly non-vigorous walk, my knees start to play up. My right knee plays up a bit more than my left, but both play up to a certain extent. They’re both the same age and look very similar, as the photos show – I think they’re twin ... Read review

Advantages: quickly and effectively relieves pain, no side effects

Introduction I am one of those unlucky people who suffer from relatively frequent headaches. I imagine that this is not an uncommon occurrence in the modern world though, what with all the stress and unhealthy lifestyles that most of us lead. Person ... Read review

Magical But Temporary Pain Relief In A Tube?
Review of Voltarol Paineze Emulgel by gothic_moon

Decent General Pain Relief
Review of Anadin Extra by gothic_moon

Advantages: Works more effectively for me than ingredients on their own, £1 for 12 or 16 is a decent buy
Disadvantages: Not a miracle cure for all aches & pains & headaches

I try not to take painkillers too often, but there are times when headaches get quite bad that I reach for something to ease them off a bit, or prescription meds if they’re turning into a migraine. As with other pains, I’ve not noticed regular aspirin o ... Read review

Advantages: Works fast, Long lasting, Good for muscle aches, Good price
Disadvantages: Strong smell, Contains latex, May burn sensitive skin

I suffer from aches and pains on a daily basis, and I hate taking pills, so you can imagine how grateful I was to find a product like Salonpas. These pain relieving patches are great for treating muscle aches, cramps, and muscle stiffness. They do their j ... Read review

Advantages: Works, no smell
Disadvantages: Slightly sticky

'Surely A Cream Stick Can't Penetrate My Skull?!'
Review of Diomed 4Head Headache Treatment by gothic_moon

Advantages: Worth a try as a pill-popping alternative, does ease the forehead a bit
Disadvantages: Overpriced for what it is, for tension headaches only

As someone with near daily headaches, I’m fairly open to trying things to help ease them if it means staying away from painkillers. Most of mine I have learnt to put up with and they don’t affect me too much, but then there are ‘baddies’ and the ‘superbad ... Read review

Review of Voltarol Paineze Emulgel by MsTricia

Advantages: effective pain relief, easy to apply, non-greasy
Disadvantages: takes a while to kick in, doesn't treat the cause just eases side effects. Pricey

A month ago we booked to go to this really cool, amazing fun place with the kids over the half term. This place was airhop. Sure how much harm could it do? Jump around on trampolines, dive head first into a pit of foam squares. Sounds fun! Well it was unt ... Read review

Review of Nurofen Caplets by thedevilinme

...a brain surgeon to realize Nurofen cost more money than other painkillers purely because it’s a strong brand. You are simply paying two quid more than Morrison’s painkillers – for example – because of the branding. The pills/caplets d ... Read review
