achy joints

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
i get really achy joints so i took cod liver oil to make it a bit more smooth running but it doesn't seemed to have helped in fact it has made it even more painful!

i also get really clicky joints like when i bend my knees n owww it hurts.

oh well spose theres notin i can do maybe im a hypochondriac.

There's a girl in my mirror
I wonder who she is
Sometimes I think I know her
Sometimes I really wish I did

    Could be rheumatism...that gets worse in the cold.
    Anyway...I used to take ibuprofen for swollen joints, but it upset my stomach, so I tried aromatherapy.

    I found that mixing LAVENDER with a base oil or MARJORAM (but be careful with marjoram) and massage it on the swelling (although I prefer marjoram in the bath).

    When I was at my worst (eating wise) I had real problems with my bones and joints and coz I wernt eating anything they became brittle. It was well painfull and I had to give up horse riding and dancing coz I injured myself so much! Its really nasty when u get like that. So what Im saying is maybe u should check your diet coz this sort of thing can be linked to lack or vitamins and stuff. I think u should take a trip to the docter though coz he/she will no best <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    lib - you took iboprofen? isn't that dangerous to take long term? And the oils sound good, i already have lavender <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    lolly - i don't think its a vitamin deficency, i always take my vits, and i have a big appetite unfortunately.

    maybe it is rheumatism. i was playing basketball with my brother y'day and it hurt so badly that i had to stop.

    Te earlier rheumatism is caught, the better the outlook. Got & see your doctor as soon as possible, just in case. You could take Glucosamine Sulphate as a precaution in case it's osteo.
