    I was reading up on this board re; this for stenosis and wondering if anyone has tried this and gotten relief?

    I suffer from cervical and lumbar stenosis and seem to be going thru really bad period with pain and tingling in my legs and arms.

    Hi GS and Jam

    I had a lot of back pain several months ago. A gal who works in the health food, supplement business
    told me high doses of vitamin C (five or 6 thousand mgs a day) took away her back pain. Sounded like
    nonsense to me, but I tried it for some weeks. (Till the bottle was empty.)

    Had no effect on my pain. Wikipedia has an article on too much "C". Can cause lots of problems
    like increased cancer risk.

    The conclusion was: we need more research so we can see.

    Hope you guys can find something. Jam, it's a shame your hip surgery didn't turn out

    High dose intravenous Vitamin C therapy has been shown to act as a chemotherapy for some cancers.

    Sunflower - check out the Vitamin C Foundation on line. You will find a lot of info about Vitamin C and there is also a forum.
