Glucosamine and gas

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine and gas


Avatar n tn Number 1 is to stop drinking( 2 drinks aday),which I have been doing for about 5 years now. I have been taken omega3/omega6,,Centrum multivitamin and Glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM. Not because of my HCV,this is something I've been doing for years (healthnut). Do taken these supplements put undue stress on the liver or make my condition bad??
Avatar n tn I was a very healthy person. The pain began in my lower back and progressed to all my joints and entire back. When my dermatologist learned of my problems, she stopped the Accutane immediately. She stated back pain was a side effect. I read all the info before taking Accutane, and it never described these symptoms in 2001. When I was 30 years old, I had back surgery and it destroyed my back.
Avatar n tn While not generally well-known or understood, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause a variety of muscle or joint-related symptoms. Hypothyroidism can create a variety of muscle and joint-related symptoms. Most commonly, these symptoms are due to swelling of the muscles, or swelling that is pressing on nerves.
Avatar n tn i eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, exercise plenty, drink plenty of water and take multi-vitamins, glucosamine and cod liver oil daily. i am 25 years old and am not a vegetarian or vegan. what is likely to be the cause of this problem?
Avatar n tn Chance are, if you have healthy joints, the cracking sound is the result of gas escaping as you move your joint. Another cause can be ligaments moving across your joints and "snapping" back into position. If you have arthritis, it is possible that the sound comes from the rough joint surface if you have lost cartilage.
Avatar n tn I have always had bouts of constipation and heartburn but now that I am menopausal I feel always bloated, have gas and have a hard time eating anything. I drink tea all day and eat very little and still have gas. Going for a colonoscopy and my gyneo is going to check me next week since I feel abdominal pain like my ovaries hurt. The pain does move because last summer the doctors thought I had gall bladder problems and it ended up I did not.
Avatar m tn Also, a lot of your symptoms could be motor neurone disease. There are 3 types of this and one causes the wasting you described and the tearing up, and actually a lot of the other symptoms. I would read up about that too. I hope you get a diagnosis soon, I know what it's like living with the stress of not knowing what you have. It sounds as if you are putting up with something very nasty indeed and I wish you the best of luck in finding treatment.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar m tn When they began I was passing gas and muccus alot.could not pass gas w/o joint pain like before,just rare slight twinges,not extreme,no swelling.did have a lot of cramping,naseua and fatigue,lasting 1 day.back was also sore one night.Do have some blood being passed when I wipe or mixed with the muccus,not heavy. I do have a hemmaroid from pregnancy.never have had regular bm's and continue not too.
Avatar m tn Tramidol side effects may include sedation, anxiety, bloating and gas, constipation, convulsive movements, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, hallucinations, indigestion, itching, nausea, nervousness, tremors, vomiting and weakness.
Avatar n tn The supplements I've found to be amazingly helpful basically consist of MSM and glucosamine. Within a few days of taking them, my muscle pain decreased and my muscle endurance greatly increased. I'm now able swim and exercise again without the rapid onset of muscle fatigue that I used to experience, and my muscles no longer feel sore for days after exercising.
Avatar n tn My ID there is aurora2779 if you ever want to talk to me just drop me a line and I will help you as much as I can. The people there are great and they understand what you are going through. BTW... What meds are you currently taking for the pain? Does the pain feel like you have the flu,that type of aching,or do you have specific spots on your body which hurt more than others? It feels like muscle cramping and knots, and hurts like hell especially when pressed or touched or both?
374933 tn?1291085384 I use Nordic Naturals or Trader Joe's brands and have no problems with them. they are molecularly distilled to remove any heavy metals. If the complex means omega 3-6-9. stay away. Our diets our usually heavy on the omega 6's and low on the omega-3's. Taking Omega 3 is enough to set the balance straight. Omega 3's are a great supplement and can help inflammation, cholesterol, heart disease and in high enough doses- mood.
Avatar m tn Not only do its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful to people with arthritis, bursitis, or tendonitis, but it can also help relieve gas, nausea, motion sickness, allergies, and bad breath, says Phillips. Tart cherries instead of pills. Like NSAIDs, cherries ease pain by inhibiting COX enzymes that trigger the production of inflammatory compounds called prostaglandins, note Job Teitlebaum, MD, and Bill Gottllieb, CHD, authors of Real Cause, Real Cure.
Avatar n tn Balch's advice in Nutrional Healing, I have begun taking kelp capsules. I also take glucosamine, 1,000 mg. of C and bioflavonoids, a potent B complex/multi vitamin supplement, 400 IU of E, calcium with D and a little magnesium, 200 mg of selenium and an estrogen replacement tablet. COULD ANY OF THESE be causing the daily bouts with very loose bowels, cramping, frequent gas and the need to belch? I have tried omitting mild products, reducing wheat intake, eliminting most sugar, etc.
221122 tn?1323014865 I don't think any of these interact, but ... I am again taking fish oil and glucosamine in the morning, but that's for joint pain, not for my heart.. but I'll take it if it helps the heart too. None of the above cause me any digestive problems.
Avatar n tn The Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT), rigorously evaluated the efficacy and safety of glucosamine and chondroitin in 1,258 people, concluding in its study that the "combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in the right formulation is effective in treating moderate to severe pain due to arthritis.
Avatar n tn It is possible that there could be a connection between the gas, internal hemorrhoids, rectal bleeding, and back pain. Some people with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis) have a form of arthritis that is associated with inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. This type of arthritis can result in severe back and/or joint pain without causing any degenerative changes that would show up on an MRI or x-ray.
168348 tn?1379360675 As long as you are not allergic to seafood or shellfish you should consider trying a Glucosamine (and Chrondroiton if you can because they work really well together but can be $$$ AND it is shark cartilage so some may have a moral objection) supplement for your athritis. It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks or more for the Glucosamine supplements to do their job so persist and be patient. These supplements help rebuild the cushioning between joints. Search it.
274158 tn?1276350787 I also give him a vitamin supplement called the missing link with glucosamine, and 3x a week he gets solid gold berry balance. He is 14 and spoiled. He was a stray and I got him when I think he was 1 and had him on the regular solid gold. He does have trouble with his back leg and drags it now and then. Probably arthritic and I give him metcam every once in awhile.
Avatar m tn I will call my vet tomorrow, but I have absolutely no money to take him in, or even gas in my old van to get him there. I've had some medical and car repair and tire expenses, so I've had to take out "payday" loans to get by, and can't even afford to go shopping this month. And of course next month the loans are due...

Avatar n tn Also should I just try and continue it as long as I can, or give up now and wait for other drugs? Also do any of you guys have severe gas, nausea and vomiting while on tx? Any info would be helpful.

Avatar n tn I am releived that I've found this site and that there are people just like me here, I'm not alone, and that makes me feel better. I still fear the night sweats and the muscle cramps and I turn into a monster...when I've ventured down this road in the past I've turned into a crazed woman...I fear Jan. 2, when I go back to work and have to put on a happy face for all the patients. I know I'll be hating life. I have the L-Tyrosine,potassium and the vitamins.
Avatar m tn When the symptoms began I was passing gas a lot and a lot of muccos. So much, that I stopped just randomly crop dusting and headed to the bathroom every time for fear I may pass muccus. I am not having joint pain like before, just slight twinges of passing pain, but not extreme and no swelling and very rare. I did have a lot of cramping and some slight naseua and I felt very worn down, but this lasted for only one day.
108861 tn?1227249648 We would be so covered with chocolate, bananna and coconut cream pie we'd head to the 24 hour grocery for shampoo and such afterward so we could clean up and fly under our Mother's radars when we went home. Way fun! I always say restraunt work motivated me to learn something else but will admit those were good days! Tell us about your first job or, perhaps, favorite or least favorite job. Let's have some fun Cysters!
Avatar m tn He cries, whimpers and barks a lot of the time. Although he is on Metacam and Glucosamine/Chondroitin and phenobarbitol I think that his dementia is such that he is an unhappy dog these days. He can barely see, can't hear, and just doesn't enjoy life much anymore. Although physically he might have a little more time left the quality of his life is so minimal that I think it is time to let him go.
Avatar f tn They recommended a joint support (glucosamine, msm comb) and an RX of Tramadol. Then in January he started drinking more water. When symptoms of anxiety, needing to go outside frequently, (including midde of night), appearing confused, eating more-we took back to vet. New blood panel showed raised levels (sorry, can't remember what) that indicated Cushings as possibility.
Avatar n tn I would have to say if you have had sex with her while she has a yeast infection you can be making it worse. A man can carry the infection and give it to the woman again and again. I would go see the doctor yourself. If you dont want her to get the infection again, I would suggest talking to your doctor about transfering infections. Otherwise she will continue to get it.
