all of a sudden on week 7 of antibiotics I have gotten really really achy and sore joints - like worse than before starting abx. Toes, wrists, knees, hips, back, thumb - you name it. Does anyone have any thoughts on how you can releive some of the aches and stiffness? I went for a walk earlier to try and get my blood flowing but now me feet are killing me. Would you ice your feet and ankles or apply heat? Any ideas? Thank you

Stephen Harod Buhner recommends Nettles for joint pain. I tried it and it worked great for me. He says to take 1500mg/day - that's what I did, and it started working the second day I took that much. You can also apply the nettles topically and get some relief.

Some also find MSM helpful for joint pain.

I hope this helps - take care,
