Aching all over

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi All

just wondered if anybody could recommend anything for the achy joints, I have read on here it is one of the many symptoms of Peri, once I get going I'm ok, but if I stop and sit then I'm stiff again, just wondering what suppliments any one could recommend, that do actually work

thank you

    Hi sue I am 64.

    I take a codliver oil capsule twice a day with a capsule of glucosamine and chondroitin..

    I take these all the time and they seem to keep my aches and pains at bay.

      Hi Jayneejay

      i have tried the above before, but never taken them together, so I will try this, I have also tried the B6 but felt quite dizzy with it, but to be fair I eat lots of fruit and veg and also meats, I have a very varied diet so should be getting plenty of my vitamins from this. I will try what Sus28 as taken and see how I ho on with that, thank you for your advice, it is much appreciated 😄

    Hiya

    I wasn't taking anything at all until the beginning of the year but, like you, out of every other Peri symptom, the aching joints were just getting too much.

    Well the thing I've found that works for me personally is Menopace Original.

    Has Vits B6, B12, D, Calcuim, Magnesium, iron, etc etc, all in one tablet, once a day.

    Think they've been popular in the UK for ages. Their range for Menopause specifically is quiet broad (the 'Plus' sounds appealing too....but that'll have to wait as I've just bought another 3mth supply of the Original!!).

    From personal experience, my aching joints (which were mostly in my left shoulder/elbow, sometimes between shoulder blades, travelling up neck (like a tight tension-feeling) have improved 100%, and I noticed a change in my general mood too, which is a result in my book!

    I can't be doing with taking loads of individual pills, so this works very well for me. However, read on, as you'll find some fantastic advice for you.  You've just got to have a read up, and see what you think might best meet your needs.

    Good Luck!

      Hi Shaznay

      thanks for that, I am going to try the menopace next if this doesn't work, I was worried about that because of the other vitamins, I didn't want to over do it on them, as I eat lots of fruit and veg on a daily basis. Hopefully the cod liver oil will do the trick taken along side the glucosamine and chondroitin, thanks for the info though xx
