Glucosamine and stomach upset

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine and stomach upset


Avatar f tn I wish I could get rid of both doctors, but I'm on Long term Dis. and switching now would be more stress and I would have to fill out a ton of paper work explaining why, which could back up my payments. I see my GP this week, and going to find a solution, I am also going to tell her how annoyed I am at my shrink assuming it's "all in my head". I could say a bunch of expletives lol..
Avatar n tn Hi I did IUI on Saturday and am now doing the dreadful 2WW and I am already feeling discouraged but not defeated. I have PMS signs and it sucks cuz IF and WHEN AF shows up I'm gonna feel like burying my self under my sheets and never waking up. Don't mean to seem negative but today I am feeling prety down. Anyhow good luck to both of us.
Avatar n tn Also one multi-vitamin dog tablet daily and 100 or 200 units of human Vitamin E. Occasionally, the aspirin upset his stomach and the vet said we could give him an over-the-counter human Pepsid. He's 95 pounds. Good luck. We had to take him off the aspirin and switch to Previcox recently, as his arthritis got worse.
Avatar f tn At first I thought he was faking to stay home from school and did not relate this to the fall since the xrays were clear so I stopped him from playing football and the limp went away. In Feb 2010 the limp came back and he also had stomach pains. He had an ultrasound done and was diagnosed with appendicitis but I asked for a 2nd opinion as he did not have a fever or vomitting. Then he was diagnosed with IBS and we modified his diet but the stomach pain got worse and the limp came back.
Avatar n tn I'm 52 and about 4 months ago I noticed my pants getting tight and my stomach swelling. I had lower abdominal pain and looked about 4 months pregnant. This literally seemed to happen overnight. I've always leaned toward the constipated side, but never to this extent. I immediately thought the worst, but CTs and ultrasounds showed severe constipation. I've not been right since and am still struggling with the symptoms. I'm on a mission to figure this out.
Business man2 Previously, I posted the question "if NO aspirin/NSAIDs/acetaminophen, what OTC pain killer for "scoped" knee pain?" Dr. Murphy replied glucosamine and fish oil. Why didn't Dr. Murphy suggest TRAMADOL ?? Are there concerns with REGULARLY taking one Tramadol 50mg tablet up to twice a day ??
Avatar m tn Joint pain Glucosamine, a building block of cartilage, can relieve pain and inflammation in joints, says Nicholas DiNubile, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon. In fact, a recent study found glucosamine is more effective than acetaminophen (a.k.a. Tylenol) at relieving symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, often caused in younger men by joint injury.
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 n tn The vet was looking for some serious underlying problem the whole time to explain the vomiting and it was probably just something he ate that severely upset his stomach... We're going to keep giving him the medication the next few days and if he doesn't regain his appetite we have a high calorie cat food paste that we will force feed him, rub a bit on the roof of his mouth, but I think he's going to be ok. So far so good, anyway. Hopefully this information helps somebody out there.
Avatar n tn He was able to tolerate Myristin which contains cetyl myristeolate and glucosamine, I'm not sure if he benefitted from taking it. I'd like to get him healthy without breaking the bank and unfortunately the vet he saw wasn't very holistic. Should I consider getting him x-rayed? Or would he benefit from a supplement Liquidambar 15. I'm hoping that Dr. Cheng might have some suggestions because I prefer alternative medicine. Thanks.
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 f tn I have severe headaches for days at a time sometimes they are so bad my eyes swell shut or I see spots my face and jaw joints ache all the time. My ears hurt and click and some times I have deaf spells my jaw pops and clicks when chewing, talking, smiling, smoking or really anything that the requires me to use facial muscles. My assult was nearly 10yrs. Ago and because of my finaces I got my surgery at the school of dentistry I got medicial insurance 6yrs.

Avatar f tn Like clockwork, I am sick for one to two days after I take my methotrexate and Humira. Every other week, I get severe nausea and upset stomach. I usually have to take something for nausea but that then will be make me extremely sleepy. The nausea starts about 12 hours or so after the shot. Is this normal? Does anyone else experience this? I have been on each of these meds for 4 years now. I don't want to change because without these meds, I cannot function, work, or be independent at all.
Avatar n tn She is difficult to get into a vehicle and to the vet due to her size and lack of mobility and eyesight. I cant' find any vet in my area who is willing to come to my home to check her over. Any ideas as to what may be happening with her? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I am so very sorry for your loss,although words bring little comfort when a person looses a beloved,very cherished companion. When our Rottie started to groaning,we'd though it was due to her elder age but come to find she had cancer in her rear leg.
Avatar f tn I just think that I am one of those people who doesnt respond well to certain things, as I have problems finding anything that will help me, but i say try anything you can, cause you never if it will help unless you try it. I did find that some things upset my stomach, like fish oils and vitamin B's make me very nauseated. I did try glucosamine, which did help my joint pain a bit, but then it flared up my gout.
535822 tn?1443980380 yeah try the liquid or look into Ruby Reds and check out the ingrediants cause at least you will be getting something then and it might not upset your stomach either.
2187849 tn?1338072581 although I did see improvement, it made one of my guys have a terrible upset stomach every night! There was something in it that did not agree w/him, so we stopped......I have read many positive reviews about this one.... I have tried many supplements & happen to like just one, extremely well....It's name is "Phycox Soft Chews"....My holistic Vet recommended this product...He does not sell it, so I buy online......It is packed with numerous joint support supplements......
1335386 tn?1275626304 An attack for me is similar to a panic attack – everything starts to spin and I get really lightheaded, then I will experience an inability to talk properly, my limbs go all jelly-like and I can’t move, and I go very cold and numb. After this episode which usually lasts about 45 minutes or so, I will fall into a drunk and disorientated aftermath that is debilitating and can last anywhere from 6 days to 2 weeks.
931217 tn?1283484935 Today's popular press often extols the supposed virtues of more "natural" ways of living, and approaching illness. There are a wide variety of theories and modalities, that together make up the broad category known as "complementary and alternative medicine (and veterinary medicine)." These approaches to health and disease are not monolithic and therefore their merits or lack thereof cannot be discussed as a category. Each must be examined alone.

Avatar n tn Mornings are often met with an upset stomach, which feels more relieved after drinking more water. - Gained 50 kgs/ 110 lbs in the space of 6 months. Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, this weight fails to reduce. Signs of improved muscle tone and improved physical ability and fitness levels indicate that the exercises have been sufficient enough to create positive change. Routine check ups with doctors show healthy blood pressure, cholesterol and blood-sugar levels.
Avatar f tn If it's a while till your next appointment, you might call the MD's office and ask if these are normal side effects and what you can take to soften them, like tylenol or something for the headache, and what to do about the stomach upset. I got no headache on Mepron and zith, but I seldom get headaches at all. It might "just" be a Herx you are having? But do report to the MD's office and see what they recommend. Let us know how you do. Take care! You're making progress!
Avatar f tn ones. I don't want to take Fosomax. It gives you an upset stomach and you have to sit up for 30 min. after taking it and the pill is HUGE. You have to have special permission to take the liquid. I just got off of very strong meds. I don't want to take anymore unless it is absolutely necessary . I ordered a couple things from this chemist/nutritionist in Ft. Worth, Texas that rebuilds bone. They are flower essences. I ordered Female Serenity Herbal Tonic "F.S.
1760652 tn?1313065993 literally felt like I was dying feeling after that I was scared I'd feel it again and it made me super hyper and jittery that night for around a week or so after I still felt out of it and it upset me alot .

12773 tn?1328916786 But all the other things I just don't know. I guess I got so used to having an upset stomach during treatment, that on and off bouts of upset stomach I just blew off. But I have been off treatment for 2.5 years now, and in the last 6 months or so been feeling worse than I did when I was done. Another thing is my brain is just not functioning properly either. I cannot talk have the time, cuz I can't find the word..
