Washington,Oct03:A Woman who suffers from the same chronic pain disorder as Lady Gaga has hailed a £9.95 cream a potential “cure” for the agonising condition.
Liz Farrell, 40, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a long-term condition that causes stiffness, fatigue and pain all over the body, six years ago.
Her symptoms were so severe she was left bed-bound and was forced to be signed off sick from her bank clerking job.
To manage her pain she was prescribed a cocktail of drugs including opiates, which made her pile on the pounds and suffer worrying memory loss.
But then she discovered a drug-free, natural remedy called Celafen, which she claims has cured her condition.
Liz, an aspiring opera singer, told the Mail Online: “I was amazed that within a few hours of putting the cream on my knees and my neck, the pain started to ease and the swelling abated slightly.
“By the end of the first week I was able to start reducing my daily intake of painkillers.”
Liz, from County Wexford in Ireland, believes her condition was triggered by the stress of her husband, Keith’s, spinal illness.
