46 year old male with a history of generalized achiness and pain associated with fibromyalgia. As a pilot he was quite limited with choice of medications. We initiated a program with use of EFAC on a p.r.n. basis. His use was primarily when flying or when required to lift any objects for any extended period of time. His relief was significant the vast majority of time except when sleeping on a poor hotel bed. We found that when he combined light stretching with the use of EFAC in the morning, the pain discomfort was reduced by 50% as opposed to stretching alone.

She’s been to physical therapy as well as seminars on relaxation and self-care for pain. These have been intermittently helpful however she has not been able to get lasting results. We suggested the use of EFAC cream which she began almost immediately. After her initial uses she experienced a 50% reduction in her pain as well as improved range of motion in her shoulders and cervical spine. We suggested the use of her cream on trigger points at the superior medial angle of the scapula’s as well as the sub occipital regions. She found this gave her relief.

Over the course of the next 6 weeks her symptoms gradually lessened in intensity and frequency. With the addition of an exercise program and EFAC cream immediately afterwards the patient had 90% to 100% relief.
