    I have been taking MSM for almost 2 wks. I am more wakeful at night and my fibro pain alternately fades and comes roaring back. This goes on and off around the clock. Im up to what I read was the max...20 grams a day. Am I detoxing too fast? Has anyone else had this happen?

    MSM is actually for joint problems, mostly arthritis, i don't think it's effective with fm, is that what you have? you might get more relief with turmeric, olive leaf, sea cucumber, or with a heating pad or mineral bath. msm won't hurt you any unless you're allergic. it's harmless, you can't even o.d. on it. cindi

    Employee's at my health food store told me MSM sometimes reduces the pain for muscle cramping and soreness. I have bad leg cramps. In a supplement book, they also said it was beneficial for Fibro, but takes some time to build up. I too have noticed that I have even more problems sleeping if I take it too close to bed. I also think, slowly but surely, it is helping some.

    Hope this helps!
