I have trigeminal neuralgia. It is a facial pain disorder and is one of the most painful disorders known to man. I recently heard about the benefits of capsicum extract pain patches. I was leery given the fact that even high doses of strong narcotic medications do not always help my pain. These patches are a miracle! At the first sign of pain, I cut the patch into strips and place it in the area of my pain and within minutes my pain levels are significantly lowered! I have not tried the patches for muscle/joint pain so I cannot comment on the effectiveness for that, but I can say that this patch works wonders on my nerve pain! I only wish that they were available in various skin tones so as not to be quite so noticeable on my face.

I've tried a dozen of these and only one or two have even become warm. I suspect the folks who give these good reviews are confusing them with the air-activated vermiculite patches, which work wonderfully. I get nocturnal leg cramps and use two patches per night, one on each leg.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MsBeasley Not worth the purchase
Being on a budget, I refuse to pay almost 10 dollars for an icy/hot patch, so I tried these. I used them on my neck and I couldn't get the patch to stay and honestly, I felt no difference in reference to pain relief. I'm just happy I only paid a dollar.

I have always had back problems. But when I started using these patches for playing golf or taking long trips I no longer have problems with my back. Very well worth the cost.
