Headache pain relief after stroke

Posted , 3 users are following.

My wife has been suffering severe headaches after suffering a stroke, with very little relief from pain killers. I saw posted on a site that rubbing Tiger Balm onto the sore spots helps. I tried this with remarkable results, she tells me that it works better than prescribed drugs & I can see the difference it makes. We Highly Reccomened giving it a try.

      Actually I do suffer chronic back pain, the best thing I found is a second hand Tenz machine I bought. I put the electrode pads on my calf muscles & that definatly helps my back, or getting some one to masssage between calf muscles with Tiger Balm is even better,. Used the Tiger Balm again on wife:s head again this morning & worked wonders. No I dont have shares in the company lol. All the best

      Yeah I it put on my back as well, I found out off a quality massage therapist { finally found one } that a lot of back pain comes from the calf muscles as well. Thats why it hurts so much when they massage your calf's,when my back hurts I notice my calf muscles are tight as well,

      Here in Australia most chemist shops stock it, Cost's about $11. It has worked well again today, just gently rubbing onto the pain spots & it doesnt tangle her hair too much. Definatly reccomend giving it a go. All the best
