Had knee pain after today's run - eased considerably after icing and a hot shower, but had already left message for physio. I see him Tuesday, but meanwhile he has advised alternating hot & cold treatment, and then immediately apply Movelat gel.

I don't have any Movelat, but googled it, and the active ingredient is salycilic acid (aspirin)

I do have: Ketoprofen gel (about 4 years old), Deep Relief (ibuprofen and menthol - even older) and Voltarol pain-eze (Diclofenac diethyl ammonium - fairly recent)

Will any of them do - or do I need to get some Movelat tomorrow? I'm inclined to go with the Voltarol at the moment - I don't fancy menthol straight on skin which has just been repeatedly cooled and warmed!

Fair enough. The pain has virtually gone anyway.

Lol well best put the butter to some other use... Bread n jam tastes better with it :-)
