Hi Chicme i no im going to sound silly here but are you saying that Glucosamine has changed your life for the better (sorry my fog is bad at the moment) im only taking Amatriptoline and co codamol as needed as im not a big pill popper but i would try anything to stop this horrible achey feeling (worst on lower back and thighs) Good to read someone is feeling better from Fibro WELL DONE YOU X


hi yes its stopped a lot of the i had i had it every where even my hips so well worth a try and also the B12 1000 is really helping me i cleaned for 6 hours yesday not been able to do 12/13 years .xxxxx


oops yes stopped a lot of the pain always missing words out x


So good to read of someone feeling better. I despetately miss my old self too. I was such an active person before this. Might try the B12 tablets. Do you get that high dose on prescription or can you buy it? I asked my GP about the injections before, but he didn't refer me for them. Have a friend who had a B12 injection for M E but he had a terrible reaction to it, skin rashes etc. Glad it is working for you chicme.


hi i bought them from the health shop they kick in right away within 20/30 min off taking them so see how you go mine cost £12.99 .every thing i did yesday i would be so ill but no feel great so something must be working .good luck let me know how you get on with them .xxx



So glad for you that you are feeling well I too have been taking

The same can't say that there is a lot of difference.

But taking magnesium has helped lots with restless legs, I have

Been Vit B for a long time as has my husband who has RA and it

Does seem to make a little difference not as tired

Some of the symptoms you have stated would be from anaemia,

so it's good that you have started Vit B

I hope you continue to improve.
