Summer Serenity Giveaway #5-Stopain Lets You Get On With Your Day 8/10

Do you get headaches? I know some people who never seem to get a headache,while I get them multiple times a week.Sometimes they are just a minor irritation,while other times it feels like my eyes are going to burst out of my head.When the headaches are minor,simple things like laying down or supporting my head on a pillow or cushion will work,but really,who has time to just lay around and wait for a headache to go away?I also have Fibromyalgia,which if you don't have it can be very hard to comprehend.There are days when it takes every effort I have just to get out of bed.There are times when the pain is so bad I can't turn my head,move my neck or even go to sleep.

I have tried over the counter pain medications,heating pads,ice and even a tens unit,but none of them work for long or totally stop the pain.Then I was offered a chance to try a product that could possibly help...Stopain. Available in 4 varieties with the soothing cool of menthol and suggested for minor back pain,arthritis,strains,sprains and bruising,I decided to give it a try.

Stopain Spray
Stopain Extra Strength Spray Stopain Extra Strength Roll-On and 
Stopain Gel
I was sent a sample of the Stopain roll on to try.I admit I was a bit skeptical at first, as I have tried similar products with little to no results.As expected my first opportunity to try Stopain came within just a few days of receiving it.I had a headache that just wouldn't go away and was slowly working itself down my neck and into my shoulders as well.I was about to try an OTC medicine for pain when I remembered this.I figured now was the perfect time to give it a try.

Applying the product was easy,simply remove the cap and roll on.I did not notice any dripping after application which is a huge plus.I used it on my forehead,neck and shoulders. I noticed an immediate relief of the pain in my neck and shoulders.I am not saying it just went away but you noticed a change within seconds and the relife got better over a few minutes.I was beginning to wonder if it was going to work on my headache,especially since it is not marketed for headaches at all.I was sitting there talking to the husband about it when I realized my head no longer hurt either.

I have used the Stopain many times after the first and each time it has been successful in weakening or totally relieving the pain.So far the husband and I have used it on the neck,head,shoulders,lower back and knees.Each time we have been pleased with the results.I like that I am no longer having to take daily doses of aspirin or similar products for pain. I try this first and if I still have pain,then I take the medication.I enjoy the menthol scent as well,but it isn't overpowering and doesn't last too long.
