I seem to be experiencing an increase in pain lately. I've heard that peppermint can sometimes calm things down.I'm looking for suggestions on what I should try. (I would prefer some kind of capsules/tablets since they are more convenient than tea when I'm out somewhere.) Anyone know any specific brands that I could buy in the grocery store or pharmacy? Also, has anyone actually had any relief from peppermint in terms of pain?Thanks.

It helps my pain.I just get peppermint Altoids. Easy to carry and at least around here (USA) they seem to be available at any grocery or convenience store if I run out.Also no one blinks if you pull a tin of mints out and have a couple. It usually takes 2-3 Altoids for me to see the effect.

I actually bought some peppermint altoids a little while ago but didn't think to check the ingredients. I got them home and figured out they had geletin in them so I stopped using them. (I'm vegetarian so I don't consume geletin.) I actually didn't even use them long enough to see an affect one way or another.
