Joint Pain

Recommended Posts

Well it looks like the last 17 months that I thought I was gluten free have all been wasted.

This week after being in hell for the last 7months with inflammation of the lining of the brain I have realized that the vegetarian glucosamine that I have used for the last 21months is pure maize. Its been poisening me. I just feel like crying.

I left it off a week ago but now all my joints feel even worse than they did while I was on iteven joints that never ached before are aching, my body feels like its collapsing, although the pain in my head is now beginning to lift.

I loose one problem and cause another.

I cannot stomach glucosamine with sea creatures like shrimp or crab and I am wondering if it is safe to use bovine glucosamine or chondrotin.

I am so upset with myself I just cannot beleive that I didn't check this glucosamine out before it just said pure vegetable powder.

ya... maize is corn. some of us have problems with it- while others are just fine. its not the same as gluten- but it MAY be an additional food intolerance for you.

ive learned after this past thanksgiving- that i should also be avoiding corn. 4 or 5 days of cornbread left me feeling like i had had regular gluten (from wheat, rye, or barley) for 1 or 2 days.

yes I realize that not everyone is affected by maize but I cannot it it normally or use cornflour without it upsetting me.

When I did try the glucosamine again just to make sure it was that which was upsetting me, I felt like I had been drugged and also got even more shaky than usual.

I would really appreciate some advice on other forms of joint pain management.
