    MSM ******for people who have pain*
    dollbug posted:
    Hello.....MiMi in NC.... I wanted to share my latest and greatest FIND*****MSM. I do encourage anyone and everyone who suffers from pain to do some research on this can be found in Vitamin Stores. I have been on it for just a very short time and it has been a *MIRACLE discovery* for me.

    I had to get injections in both hips in December which lasted only a very short time. (I had the injections before which lasted a long time)....anyway....I did some research on trying to find something to help my chronic fatigue.....and came across the MSM. I bought the powder form and I am taking 1/2 teaspoon (twice a day now) and OMG*****I no longer have hip or knee pain. I have NOT gotten any *energy boost yet*....BUT I am hoping this will soon happen as well. Time will tell.

    I do suggest that for anyone who is taking prescriptions to be sure and speak to your doctor or pharmacist about taking this to make sure there is not any known interactions which might occur.

    Good Luck. I hope this will work as well for anyone who tries it as it has for me so far.
