    Voltaren for Pain (joint)

    Have sprayed Voltaren spray on the hip. After 2 days, I had a strong stimulus and the ones I sprayed on had water bubbles and a strong allergy. It was getting worse and worse. The doctor first prescribed an ointment for me, which did not help at all. Another doctor (ambulance, since I could not stand it on the weekend), had to give me an infusion with cortisone and prescribed me a stronger ointment and tablets. The application of the spray is now 11 days ago. Have now all over the body an allergy and strong itching. The doctor said it might take another week to get better. I can only warn against this hell stuffI still have the water bubbles on my hip.

    Voltaren for Disc prolapse

    The pain relief is very noticeable. Take heavy pain 75 mg daily and can go to work normal, which would often not be possible without Voltaren. Unfortunately I am very tired and lethargic by Voltaren, have mental disorder and am very irritable. Flatulence and stomach rumors are added. In addition, I noticed that after taking V. I always gain 1- 2kg, and after weaning, the weight is then regulated again.

    Voltaren for Pain (acute)

    Many people here write of the side effects of stomach cramps and diarrhea, but for me it is quite clear. At the moment I am also suffering from being operated on 9 days ago and (eating) drinking a lot and not taking proper food to me. The stomach needs something to work on and it has nothing to do with just liquid consistencies. So the stomach is cramping because he needs work well and that is not available with soup and water. I would not worry too much about it after the 6 weeks it is almost over ….. But just do not eat Ballastsoff rich then you get exactly the opposite effect … Drink a lot then your body does not dry out. .. greetings Anka

    Side effects: No side effects

    Voltaren for Sciatica

    so far no side effect, but the only thing that really helps and relieves pain locally. I find the patches better, as no oral input and thus less strain on other organs.

    Side effects: No side effects
