    How many have tried MSM and what results have you had? The Chirop. told me it would help with my MCS/ Sinus/ Allergy problems along with the pain. I find this hard to believe.

    Guess I missed your post. Did the MSM help you with pain? I have tried many supplements and none have really helped. Do you have CFS/FM? We are all different. Yes, I believe in some and some not.

    You have talked about the grapeseed extract, I think its great that you had such results. Well, I have tried it, still use it because I feel it may have some silent benefits but as far as my mcs/sinus/ allergy No it hasn't helped. That is one reason I was asking about the MSM for allergies etc.

    There are days I feel like I have been poisoned . Just can't describe how horrible those days are with the body aches, anxiety, ears ringing 24/7 etc.. Is it MCS/ allergies/ sinus, who knows. It comes on suddenly and leaves me bed ridden for days. Doctos are clueless unless its the FM/CFS.

    I have heard how MSM helps with arthritis etc. but haven't heard anyone comment about allergies/sinuses / mcs etc..

    God Bless,

    I tried it and found that it helped a ton with pain; however, it gave me many other really bad side effects, and I constantly felt completely drugged to the point I could not do ANYthing. Many people with ME/CFS have problems processing sulfur, and cannot take MSM for that reason, and I turned out to be one of them. If you do try it, start with a tiny, tiny amt and see how you respond beofre gradually increasing it.

    As to allergies and sinus issues, the thing that has helped me with this is taking a ton of Vit C. I used to have severe sinus problems and the Dr was recommending surgery, bc nothing else had worked. I started taking Vit C, and got rid of the sinus issues. After awhile I tried to cut back on the Vit C and the sinus problems started to come back; resumed the Vit C and sinus issues left again......that was about 15 yrs ago and since then I have tried on a few different occasions to back off the Vit C and cannot do it without the sinus issues, but as long as I stay on it, no sinus problems at all. I currently take 12 grams (not mg) a day of vit c, but if you decide to try this, don't jump to that high a dose immediately, bc it takes your stomach a bit of time to adjust to it.

    The Vitamin C Foundation swears by high doses of Vitamin C for sinus problems. I started taking it but never did get to high enough doses to really notice any difference. Glad to hear that it worked for you.

    Thanks a bunch. Seems we are doomed if we do and doomed if we don't. I have started the MSM in a small dose will slowly increase. I take 500 mg of vit. C but guess that isn't enough . How many mg in 12 grams?? Maybe I can figure that one out. lol

    Thanks and God Bless,

    p.s. Did I figure right are you taking 12,000 mg. of vit. C ?? If so I sure do need to increase.
