Help With PPS Pain

Hope this helps someone. I spent some time in Italy and during my visit I noticed that joint and muscle pain I had before I arrived disappeared. I checked around and found that olive oil is a natural pain reliever. I use to take pills and needed pain relievers to sleep the night through. Now I am taking a spoon-ful of a olive oil a day and only ocassionally take pills. Try it for a few weeks and see what happens.

Hi Sdelair,
Olive oil is good but you might find cod liver oil and other fish oils are better. Or, maybe a combination of the two. My father suffered from PPS after 50 years in a wheelchair due to polio caught in 1952. Muscle weakness, pain and fatigue was a permanant feature but fish oils definately helped.

Re: Help With PPS Pain

Hi Mhill,

What herbs & supplements are you taking?

Husband had polio, we believe pps. Dr. labled it peripheral neuropathy. Taking gabapentin. One side effect is awful swelling feet & legs. He broke his polio foot,& neuropathy is most painful in the right.

Sure wish there was something I could find to help this pain.
