I use Dicfofenac cream on my feet where I have hard bumps over the arch on both feet. It does keep me from having flares there which were so painful I couldnt even walk. Pray you find something that helps you. Blessings, prayers and gentle hugs

Is Diclofenac the same thing as Voltaren? I tried the topical stuff but it didn't do anything. Every person is different, so what helps one may not help another. Praying you get something that helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love and hugs!

I love Diclofenac! However, I cannot take it regularly due to gastric issues. My vote is to give it a chance, however, do take it with food. Enjoy your granddaughter....

Hugs and blessings...
