    I have tried them with no discernible effect, however the magnetic ones gave me a blister type rash.

  • I did try a plain copper one once but without any effect beyond a skin rash on my wrist.

    My wife bought me one whereby the copper is coated in a clear film and it also contains magnets but it is too big so I haven't worn it as yet. One day I will get it made smaller and give it a try.

    There is not a lot of evidence (if any) for their efficacy but that does not necessarily mean it is not worth trying.

    However, if my pain was "unbearable" I would be seeking a more pharmaceutically orientated option in the first instance.

    There is an old wives tale about never getting arther in your wedd8ng ring finger, it is just that, an old wives tale. I’ve been wearing my gold ring for nearly 45 years and guess which knuckle is the most painful, yep, wedding ring finger!

    it’s a grin, honest!

    All they did for me was give me a green arm. Sorry 😕

    Love
