I had been in pain for months with sciatica in my right hip. I could barely walk when getting up from a chair or out of my car. I went to my doctor because the next day I was driving for four hours to visit my son at college and was worried I would be in too much pain to walk around all day. He prescribed the Flector patch.

I have a rotator cuff problem in right shoulder causing intense shoulder and upper arm pain. I bought this patch while travelling in France. Applied 2 patches to affected areas. The pain continues to persist. Looking of another solution.
