Hi Libby...the hubby is also taking fishoil capusles to see if it will lower his cholestral and tryglicerides as an article in the Havard Health Watch(I think that is where he read it) claims it can be at least as beneficial as statins without all the side effects. It also is supposed to lower blood pressure. I am taking them at the moment for lexapro withdrawal which has been a Hellish Nightmare. I just started them so I don't know if they are working yet. I understand they can help with inflammation. Like everythings else, including prescription drugs, what might work for some won't do a thing for others. I hope it works for you, but like puppylover said, you might want to check with your doctor or Pharmacist for dosages, and for contraindications on other medications you might be taking.
I take fish oil capsules everyday. I don't know it it helps the pain, but it can't hurt.
