My arm was bothering me this week, and my instructor suggested I buy some DMSO to put on, as it’s known to block some of the pain receptors and essentially numb what ails ‘ya.
I decided to give it a try, because while the pain has been rating from something that I could manage to something I could downright neglect, it’s been getting worse while training.
I bought some from a local organic food store, patchouli scented and all, came home and smoothed a little over the area it hurt.
And then it started to itch.
And then it started to burn.
Holy Crap it was like getting a nasty sunburn at the beach!
I was then informed you REALLY have to wash and disinfect the area you put the DMSO, since it’s so strong.
There was some decrease in pain, but for now I think I would rather pop some more Advil before I resort to that again.
One response to “DMSO: What The F&!;*^??”
Maybe you allergic to it…
