I'll have to check out the Heet myself.  I've seen it around, but never tried it...didn't know it dated back that far.  

While it doesn't work for me, several people I know (including Watson) love DMSO as a mild pain reliever.  It works for her on some pains when all else fails (even medications).

It frightens a lot of folks, though, because it's a laboratory solvent that penetrates quickly, no one really knows why it works, and makes some folks taste garlic as soon as it touches your skin.  There's some intuitive wisdom that will say "that can't be good for you."

So far, however, no laboratory tests have found any negative effects (unless you count garlic taste).  Since I don't use it, take my endorsement with a grain of salt, but I follow the data.

You may also want to try WD40. Odd as it sounds it can help joints move better. My wife had an Uncle in his 90s that swore by it. He was moving better than I was so I figured as long as I had a can in my workshop anyway I may as well give it a try. You spray it on and rub it in and it does work. ! more reason to respect elders as it would have never occurred to me to try it on my own.

PS. As I wrote this it occurred to me that compared to most in here I am an Elder
