Knee Pain and Related other possibilities.

Dr.Dr. Stoll:

I am phobic, have a considerable amount of anxiety, consume to much sugar and have knee problems that I can not figure out. After researching some of your archives I think I may be finding some answers that I have not recieved from previous medical advise. I kind of zeroed in on the Hypothalamus conection and how it may relate to my problem. I hope I may have found some answers and would like your advise. I am 63 years old and still very competitive. I played handball for many years. My knee problems started about 20 years ago. I do not recall ever having a knee injury but my knees began to give me problems. The problem began with swelling and acheing after I would compete. I iced and used ibuprofin.
Trying to make a long story short, over the years the problem is chronic. About 10 years ago I was told by an ortho Dr. that he could find nothing clinically wrong except a little arth. I have not since found the answer and the problem still persists. I no longer compete but I still coach football and baseball and have a type A personality. I do not drink very much, about 2 cups of coffee daily, I am slightly overweight,15lbs, I consume dairy products and eat wheat bread and am fond of sweets. I do not smoke. I have since about late high school had the onset of panic attacks and have been treated with relaxation therapy. I have not had med perscribed for panic attacks. I have learned how deal with panic except in extreme cases. After dealing with or knowing that I have to enter a panic situation I feel spent and my knees kill. When I get into some social situations my knees hurt when prior to the situation they did not hurt at all. Sometimes my knees do not hurt at all or the pain goes away rather quickly. I have been told it's all in your head and could be it is. Hypothalamus connection ? Do you think I am on the right track ? The only med I use is ibuprofin probably 4 a day or more if it is really bad. Pain seems to be worse on gloomy days. If you think I am on the right track what should I be doing to see that my diet is correct and what vitamins and minerals ect. do you recomend. Thanks Brian Hunter

It seems odd that stress could be felt so fast in
your knees but then we are all different.

I started to have knee problems when in my mid
40's and it hindered my tennis playing. An old guy
who used to walk around the big park every day
told me to try cod liver oil since he had been
taking it for 7 yrs for arthritis. I didn't
believe it but told a weight lifting girlfriend
who had said she had arthritis in her wrists. She
tried it and it helped so I did and it helped me
also. and eventually cured the problem. Another
knee problem was solved with Natures's Bounty
Gluchosamine/Chondroitin and Natrol MSM. The pain
has been gone for about 8 mo this time. It had
been coming back after 4 mo twice and that was without
continuing taking the supps.

Hi, Brian.

Everyone now agrees that NSAIDS (ibuprophen) make arthritic changes progress faster (apparently by their effect upon LGS). Since regular SR is one of the most effective ways to deal with LGS AND also is the MOST effective way to reduce the intra-articular pressure (as well as deal with your phobias and anxieties--and thus slow the progression of wear and tear arthridites.............

I would start glucosamine sulphate, 750 milligrams twice a day--along with the EFAs on the home page while getting good at SR.

See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

Let us know how you do.

You might try giving negatively charged water a shot. It did wonders for me. You can get the instructions at www.energizedwater.info.
