Not yet, I've decided to consult with the orthopedist about that, but more importantly to get his views about getting a cortisone injection/and or MRI scan. The latter will also depend on whether my insurance covers it. What seems to be pretty good in the anti-pain regimen is actually a topical liquid preparation that I obtained at the pharmacy at the Chinese (acupuncture) hospital. It's a 100% herbal/organic-type of liniment, imported from China. There's actually a website for the manufacturer. Of course the odor comes from common menthol, but it's otherwise a completely different animal from the NSAID gel or OTC creams like "Counterpain." The Chinese stuff seems to exhibit analgesic qualities that are more effective and last longer than the others. Meanwhile, I went to see the orthopedist today but the nurse told me he was out sick. Now, that's something I didn't expect. We usually forget that doctors can get sick, too.
