Does anyone have any experience with taking Zelnorm and having joint pain? I'm having "connective tissue" issues in both of my elbows, knees, right wrist and hands.
Since I can't seem to get any assistance from the 4 different doctors that I've seen, I've been left to figure it out for myself.  mad  
Thanks! Creel

Hi Creel,
I only took Zelnorm for a short while but I don't think that I have heard or read anything about joint pain with it. What kind of docs have you seen for your symptoms? Have you had any blood work? I have a connective tissue disorder (Sjogren's) so I know how awful you must feel. I would definitely keep pushing for answers and if you can't get them (unfortunately things take years to show up on tests/bloodwork but that doesn't mean its not there), I would push for treatment. Omega-3 supplements in either fish oil or flaxseed oil I would highly recommend to help with the inflammation in your joints.
Hugs, Des
