...to ease the immense pain of a majorly pulled muscle? It feels as though I've torn it cos it hurts so much, but I guess it can't really be that bad. Was a real nuisance earlier cos I had a rehearsal where I had to sing and play the flute and I couldn't even breathe properly Any suggestions?

Sounds like it's your obliques. Take some painkillers. For muscle pains, ibuprofen is better than paracetemol and aspirin. Try not to twist your torso too much.

It also kills slugs in a spectacular way.

Yeah, brilliant stuff that. I've almost used up my tube, cos I've used it quite a bit. Pulled thigh muscles, pulled groin muscles... Which is better and more effective? Deap heat cream or the spray?

I find Deep Heat burns me. I put a hot water bottle on my shoulder a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to work

Get a pain relieving spray or put deep heat on it.

Do you use the freeze spray only when you're injured, or before you go and play anytime?
