MSM & knee pains

Posted by

My knee pains came back about a week ago so I started the
Natrol brand MSM that helped them before and the pains are
just about gone. A Dr's website claimed that the pains I
had lower down below my knee cap were from weak thigh
muscles and that exercises would help. I had started them
some sucess but then I found MSM in my search. I still
wonder why just the one brand of the 4 I have helps them
and others help other things but I'm not complaining. I
stoped taking the Natrol brand soon after the pains went
away 3-4 mo ago since I thought the problem was fixed like
the cod oil I took for sharp pain in the joint I haven't
had to take for about 8 yrs now after having to only
rarely for 3 yrs. Guess I'll take this brand when I remember
as a maintance dose and see what happens.

Walt,

My knee problem was said to be thight muscle weakness
or an imbalance between quads and hamstrings. With all my
muscle/weakness problems I guess a lot could be causing it
I had tried the recomended exercises once and then started
the MSM and the pains went away in 4 days. This time I just
used the MSM and the pains reduced a lot and are gone at
times but linger a bit so I am trying the exercises to see
if that solves it completely since I Hate Pains. I've had
More than enough from simple activities and I used to do
10X as much with 1/4 the aches and pains and I Keep looking
to get back to doing what I did and still try.

The 4 brands of MSM I have help different things, sinuses,
muscles, and joints. One or more got me lifting weights and
Not hurting after when just carrying grocery bags used to
wreck me for days and walking my hounds strained my whole
body though they do pulls and tug. Thanksgiving nite I went
to see a friend and played with his Very frisky 80 & 110 lb
Mastiff and Rotwieller pups that gave me a Workout. I was
beat that night and had wrestled with my mothers house heater
the nite before working on a leak that was floding the
basement and on T-Day had to lift my mom in and out of the
car and wheelchair since she can hardly move so did a lot.
