Mr Tin Man update!

Hello ladies

Just an update on my Mr Tin Man status, if you remember me writing about stiff painful joints (especially in mornings) well the magnesium has worked a treat, even night leg cramps are better, I thought I would post this as I noticed some ladies complaining of muscle and joint pain! X

      Dear Sue,

      Yes i cook with tumeric and black pepper, plus i read somewhere to add olive oil to get it working, I didn't realise it helped joints, I just read how good in general it was for you, so thanks for that x

    What type of Magnesium are you taking? I've tried Mag Oxide and am now on Mag Malate and have yet to see much benefit in the 'Tin Man' dept! Joints are SO painful in the morning.

    That is great news. I have woke up this morning early hours with joint pain now in my elbow. I have a day off today from work and was heading out to holland and barrathe for some vitamins and advice, but cannot even drive at the moment. So tired. Please can you state the name of what you bought. Once again great news.

    Hi pinkcatfairy. Thankyou for sharing that tip with us. I had a steroid injection in my hip in april for what they think is trochanteric hip bursitis which causes pain in my right calf/knee only during the night in bed!! It still hurts in my calf/knee at night but not as regular as before injection. it is like deep bone pain. i may try the magnesium, but dont want to take any more tablets as i'm on alot of meds at present. I heard there is a magnesium spray - does anyone know where you can get it from? (might be better for me to try a spray, as i have a colitis flare at present so dont want to take anymore tablets that may possibly interfer with colitis/meds) thankyou again. xxx
