Looking for an alternative to avoid driving back to AZ for routine shots in my thumb joints.

Since you said alternative, I’ll suggest one. If it’s pain you are looking to relieve, then I have something to talk about. I have a husband that for years has had bone-on-bone shoulders AND hips due to arthritis. For many years I’ve looked for a prescription pain killer that worked. Nothing, until I took him to an orthopedic surgeon in the states. She recommended an nsaid that has worker for her patients. We were only able to get a 90 days rx before coming here and paid around $90. I found it here, without rx for $1.50 for a 30 pill bottle at Similares. As you know nsaids, like Aleve, do work but they can affect your stomach and may cause bleeds. You have to take them with food. The magic med is called diclofenac, diclofenaco in Spanish. My husband found the 50mg med works for him fine. He takes them every 12 hours. Good luck.

One of the brand names is Voltarén, and is available in a 100 mg dose, which is what I use.
Prescription drug in th USA, but can be purchased OTC in Mexico, as poster #2 stated.
This med also comes in a topical gel, in two different strengths, which I use.
Great stuff.

I have had amazing results with a liquid called DMSO. I suggest you do a search for "DMSO arthritis" and check it out.

I found Voltarin locally and learned shots are available from Dr. Mike at the imaging center just north of the Pemex in SC.  Receptionist said he's not using ultrasound guidance and that others have asked for it.  
Has anyone found DMSO locally?  No luck at the pharmacies or the wellness shop in SC.

We used DMSO 40 years ago on our horses and it helped one of our dogs.  The stuff is amazing but I haven't tried it lately on human issues.  It worked for me many years ago but I actually forgot about it until now.  Can you buy it here I wonder?  I may try it again.


Wouldn't the medical and drug profession be upset if a simple application of DMSO would ease arthritis pain? They would have to go out of business.

In reading about DSMO, it appears it’s approved by the FDA only for use in treating instertitial cystitis. Maybe because of toxicity concerns. So my question to the ones who have used it is, how long have you and have you seen any secondary effects? Also have you found it here and in what format? Thanks.

I never had to use it for long periods of time. Toxicity concerns are usually due to contaminants during the application. The stuff that I am using now is 100% pure and I get sort of a "burning" sensation for an hour or so after applying it. Less than 70% pure is not effective.

Thanks, kiteboarder. It looks like you are using this substance topically, so it’s a cream or liquid. Are you using it for muscle pains? And how effective is it in terms of periods of no pain in between applications? Thanks.

goldin, yes I apply the liquid topically. It is hard for me to accurately say how effective it is as I naturally heal well with time.  I don't really use it for pain. I use it to make the cause of the pain go away. I first used it in the 70's but hadn't thought about it again until just over a year ago when I found some at my dad's house.


I have used it on a knee that had been bothering me for several months and within a week it felt fine. I used it on my thumb that was getting stiff and sore and that had been bothering me for about a year (I assumed that it was arthritis) and again, it went away within a week. Both of those were over a year ago and neither one has returned. 


I have spent most of my life outdoors in the sun and I constantly get various types of sun spots and keratoses. They usually go away in a week or two at the most. I recently had one that had grown larger, more raised, and darker and it concerned me because I had it for several months. I made an appointment with a doctor and I also started applying DMSO. Within three days it was gone.


I take a blood thinner, Pradaxa, so I bruise rather easily and this seems to cut the healing time down to a day or two. I recently started using it on one hand and arm and not the other to see if it keeps that arm more clear than the other of bruises and sun spots. I have used it on deeper bruises and damage as well (from kiteboarding crashes) and it seems to help.


Could be just coincidences but I haven't had any negative experience with it so I'll keep using it.

Thanks, kiteboarder. I’m guessing you don’t get your med here. Could you, if you have? Also is it an rx? Thanks.

Goldin, I couldn't find it here so I ordered it from Amazon in the states. Not rx.
