I bought some fish oil -- frankly because it was free after rebate -- but also because I heard it was good for us. Sadly, I'm not really up-to-date on why it's good for us. (I'm a vegetarian, so capsules are one way to get fish oil without actually having to gag it down via eating !) Here's what I've noticed since I started taking it: The tight, gravely, achy pain that was like an encasement around my neck & spine is virtually gone. I keep finding myself wondering out loud, "What's different? What's different?" My body was so used to THAT pain being with me everyday that my brain is wondering where the heck it went. Good riddance! Also, my blood pressure up-and-down swings have leveled out a bit. Another an odd change my brain can't get used to! I was so used to panting and getting flushed over the least little exertion. Hmmm. Is it the fish oil helping with this? I've only been taking it about ten days. So far, it seems worth taking to me . What did you notice after you started taking it?
