You know when you have a killer headache, or backache, or shoulder pain, or some other pain and you've tried to use your standard go-to pain medication? You know, that Tylenol, or aspirin, or ibuprofen, or Aleve, or whatever just doesn't work?
You know what probably will?
Menstrual pain medicine.
Yep...Midol or Excedrin Menstrual Pain or something similar.
The same additive in that medicine that makes cramps go away can also make other pains go away when the "pain medication" doesn't.
I pitched this to my boss a few years ago, and he was mortified. He was at work and was struggling with a headache that just wouldn't go away (my guess it was tension related). Anyway, he had taken some meds from the first aid room that were pain relievers, and they weren't doing the job. I told him to take some of the Midol out of the first aid cabinet. He looked at me with a horrified expression, and I promised him that he wouldn't loss his Adam's apple over it. So he tried it.
He stopped using anything else from that first aid cabinet and hit up the Midol first.
I can't guarantee it WILL work for you, because I don't know the source of your ailment. But I can tell you that it is worth a shot, because it does Work For Me when my other medicines don't.
Go over to We Are THAT Family to see what works for everyone else!
