    A supplicant for joint pain question?

    I have recurring pain in one knee and my left hip which at times are inabiltaking to say the least, it tends to have an effect on my shooting the bow.....I also have some pain in my bow shoulder but not enough to worry about. Are there any out there that have a supplement that really works? I am currently taking FlexoPlex and it seems to be working OK and I've used OsteoBiflex also in the past.......any help and advice would be helpful, and I would appreciate it!

    I use Osteo Bi-Flex daily for shoulder, elbow, and hand pain. I've been taking about 2 years with good results. You may want to ask this in the health and fitness section as well, good luck!

    Try fish oil, I have friends that swear by it. It takes a month or two to start seeing results though

    I tend to use Scotch more than anything else. It doesn't really help with the pain, just makes it way less important. And, it's way less expensive than most OTC supplements. Taste better, too.

    This right here. I've had both shoulders scoped and I love my fish oil. It's also great for your cholesterol/heart. Other options are glucosamine/chondroitin (did nothing for me but some people swear by it) and good ole' Tylenol arthritis.

    WD40 on your skin? I have used it on my muskie baits to keep the hooks from rusting but never on my joints..

    1oz of pure cherry extract every morning. It took care of my tennis elbow in a couple weeks.

    The "D" in WD40 is, I believe, DMSO? Baseball pitchers used this religiously when I was in college to help relieve shoulder and elbow pain from tendinitis, due to over exertion. My grandfather used to spray wd40 and rub it in on his hands to help with arthritis pain. I just use a prescription anti-inflammatory to help with my knee and joint pain. Cherry juice is good for gout!

    Maybe try a product called DMSO it's in health food stores in the cleaning department. Only use a little, gives ya bad breath but help with all kinds of things. Google it.

    I heard the main ingredient in WD40 is fish oil, makes since it would work if this is true

    WD-40 gots its name for:

    Water
    Displacement
    40th try.............they got the formula right on the 40th try...hence wd-40.

    Stuff works great on me.

    They say......."laughter is good for the soul".....well I got some good laughs out of some of these. I thought somebody was making fun of me going and getting a diet DP from Sonic everyday at 2PM ( Happy hour) with cherry juice......there are some good advice here and WD40 is a penetrant which is OK I guess but doesn't it have some kind of oil in it? I've rubbed it on my fingers due to authers-itus......I've also tried the gel that is for ligament damage in horses forelocks and it is also a penetrant and boy does it set you on fire. I put it on my back one time and it set me on fire and hollered for my wife to get it off and fast......Wasn't funny but if I remember correctly, its a blue gel and it does penetrate right thru ya......This stuff I'm taking is FlexoPlex and its rated over Osteobiflex but there are others that say you have to get egg shell in the pills to really work.......I've found with Osteo and this Flexo stuff that when you first start using it the pain increases like all git out and then after a few days to a week it eases away and becomes easier to take......I know one thing......I will eat buffalo dung if it will save me from having to go thru hip replacement again......
