Having cervical stenosis and carpal tunnel my NP put me on this. Within 24 hours I was having intense pain and headaches and severe stomach aches. I was in bed for 3 days. I quit using it and all of those symptoms resolved within 24 hours. Keep in close contact with your doctor when you start using this.

I've been using Voltaren for a week for ankle pain due do car accident, it seems to give a fast relief, and it is ease to use. I wonder if I can use for lower back pain too? Does anybody can give an advice on that? I am a little bit scared though about the side effects, I haven't had any yet, I tried Celebrex before but my stomach could not take it for more than 2 days.

Unable to take oral NACIDS b/c of past cancer. Voltaran has helped me with both knees--one replacement and one genuine equipment. Also helped ankle in recovering from torn achilles with swelling and pain from exercising. Don't know what I've had without it!
