Glucosamine with MSM for Joint Pain & Inflamation
I've recently been experiencing pain in my finger joints and my right index finger first knuckle is becoming distorted. My mother has Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia so I figured it would be a matter of time before I started showing symptoms. I'm 48 y.o.
I started taking Glucosamine w/MSM about a week ago.....one pill in the morning and one at night and the pain seems worse. I thought it might take a while to see any positive results, but is it common to feel more pain first??
It's becoming more and more difficult to do certain things with my right hand. I'd really like to control this with natural supplements. I do take Ibuprophen and a small does of Hydrocodone for other pain issues, but it's not really helping with this.
My mom's hands are really gnarled up and painful for her, she's in her 70's. I don't want it to happen to me.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
