I had a car wreck 3 years ago and ended up with a lot of back pain. I have taken the normal medicines plus therapy. It help some but I still have to deal with pain on a daily basis. A friend told me about compounded topical creams. I encounter that some do tors may not like them. However, I started using them for pain and it has really help me a lot. I actually feel much better. So when I say "I feel your pain" I really mean it.
