Salonpas saved me from headaches
| Loni Place
I had stress headaches almost constantly for three months. I tried everything-ENT doctor, painkillers, neurologist, MRI's, Cat Scans. Then I tried Salonpas on a whim one on each shoulder behind my neck and the headaches left instantly and I haven't had another one since. It all started out with a virus. I think I coughed so hard, I stressed out my neck and shoulders. I can't say enough how fortunate I was to find this.
