    Have any of you ever taken msm? It is suppose to be a natural supplement that is good for fm, ra, os, energy and other things.

    Yeah I tried it a few years back, was on it for 3-6 months, can't remember exactly how long, but it did nothing for me.

    I loved the idea of it being natural and was really hoping it would work for me. I didn't get any side effects off it but i didn't get any results either.

    Would be good to hear if its working for others and they use it.

    The ND gave me somethign with glucosamine, chondroitin (sp?) and MSM, but I only just started it, and she told me it takes 3 months or so to kick in.

    I hope it will work. I know they give glucosamine to the arthritic horses at the barn LOL.

    Problem is, I may not know *which* of them works if any. Maybe its a synergy thing?

    It has turmeric in it too, apparently that is also supposed to help.
