I tryed almost all gel and patches available in USA. But the farmacists at CVS and Walgreen always send me to a gel called Icyhot, but this doesn't work for me. I am 63 and I am obliged to work 6 days a week standing for 8 hours a day. I am in constant pain, please help me. I don't have any insurance.

I think that you are looking for Voltaren Gel, sold in the USA. You use four to eight grams, and it is an NSAID in cream form that relieves pain on contact. The problem is that it is very expensive. You can get a coupon from the manufacture. Almost EVERY drug companies out there offer coupons, for at least a year. Just google the name of the med.. If you can't afford it, or can't find a doctor to write a script to it, try capsasian. It is the oil of the jalapeno peppers that actually kills the substance P that your body produces that causes pain. Beware of mucous membranes!! You must wash your hand thoroughly after you use it. This is OTC. Good luck!
