    Haven't started with arthritis treatment such as glucosamine. Only found out diagnosis today and main concern right now is immediate pain. I could have a bit of herniation of disks too, but probably wont' find out for sure, been doing research on net, in between getting icepacks! and recommendation to doctors is not to do extensive expensive testing as the herniations frequently resolve themselves or become asymptomatic after time.....

    So, I'm mostly working on pain management and posture issues for the next day or two. I really need help with the pain....but the rivatril combination with my restoril is making me sleepy so maybe i'll be able to sleep through the pain. then again, maybe not!!!


    But, yes, I guess I will have to do research on best arthritis herbs and blends, glucosamine, msm, etc....

    oh great....another expensive project

    If I remember correctly, i believe I felt less pain
    in my neck on the third day of glucosamine.
    I also know that they all say you should take
    glucosamine and chondroitin but I didn't take
    the latter and still reaped the benefits.

    I really should get back on glucosamine. It's
    really foolish not to be with all my disk problems,
    etc. You know how it is. I have been on kicks
    of taking several supplements and also on kicks
    of nothing. Then when I get my IBS really bad,
    I say who want to put one more thing in my body!!!
