    Joint Pain

    For those posting with arthritic problems and joint discomfort, I have lymes disease and fibromyalgia. Like everyone else, I'm hopeful for a cure. I did find a product (purchased at Walgreens) that minimizes my joint pain. It's called i-flex. I recommended it to a couple of friends who also noticed improvement. The capsules are large and the recommended dose is 3 capsules 2 x a day and then reduce to 2 capsules 2 x a day when you feel any relief. I take 3 capsules 2 x day for 3 days when I have flare-ups and them stop. I honestly start feeling a difference the first day. It doesn't eliminate it 100% but my joints feel about 80% better. It's definitely worth a try. Good luck!
