    I have been taking Mobic and Xeljanz for two kinds of arthritis and it is the former that causes side-effects, in me. That side-effect is being treated by medication that is doctor-prescribed. Good luck to the people whose symptoms are relieved by anything other than prescription medication. After all, nobody needs pain.
    However, a quick trip to a website purporting to be the home of the Mayo Clinic, informs me that the side-effects of MSM are not so well known. Therefore I urge caution; a consult with a doctor for instance, or chemist, before travelling into the more or less, unknown.

    I am riddled with arthritis from the base of my neck down to my tailbone.
    Add to that bulged & herniated disks, and a list of other ailments I can't even spell.

    Hell Yeah, I am going to give MSM a try.

    ...and NO, I am not going to consult my doctor. It is their job to push what Big Pharma sells and poo poo anything cheap, abundant, or natural.

    He even said he would take away my pain meds if i ever take any Kratom.
    When I asked him what he knew about Kraton, he said he did not know anything about Kratom at all, but can only suggest prescription meds to his patients.
    In other words, only stuff Big Pharma sells and nothing else.

    So, of course, I never took Kratom at any time and never have.

    MSM has been researched since the 1950's.
    Well documented research at that.
    I researched it diligently prior to using it.
    I suggest you all do the same.
    I found nothing detrimental in any of the studies, and I have experienced no Ill effects whatsoever.
    Check out NIH's website. Lots of information there.
    According to the FDA which has approved it for human use, MSM is safe in dosages up to 4845.6 mg per day.
    That is in excess of 16 times the dose I am taking presently.

    I have heard of MSM but have never tried it. Maybe get some for my Mom, she has Arthur bad. I am holding up pretty good at this point. I walk 3 or so miles a day, helps a lot. My only issue is weight. I was walking 2 miles a day, weight holding pretty good. Want to lose weight though so I increased mileage to 3 miles a day, lost a few pounds then started gaining. Driving me nuts. I am probably going to have to go low carb no carb to lose weight.

    I gotta say I have tried the prescription crap and it makes me sick to my stomach, took the other stuff glucosamine for a year or so and noticed nothing different except lighter wallet. Now I take aleve and suck it up, but after reviewing this thread maybe I will give this a whirl. I used to use DMSO when I played sports for injuries like hip pointers and bruises and it worked like a champ. I always seem to have a garlic taste in my mouth using the DMSO and yes it was a horse liniment I was using and I think I bought it at Southern States long ago.
