MSM is amazing! Just start slowly! 1/4 of teaspoon or less and increase gradually.. I just started for low back pain after microdiscectomy 4 years ago and pain ever since they found osteophytes or bune spur and I'm sure inflammation and starting taking MSM. It's relieved my back pain. We need to start putting these doctors in jail for what they are doing to people and performing surgeries that were not necessary.

I am 66 year old female and have had chronic lower back and shoulder blade pain issues and started to get much worse. So I started doing some research and started on MSM powder both internally and externally. After using I am now in only my 2nd week and have to say my pain has improved probably 75% . I was using an arthritic cream which helped but since starting the msm I haven't had to use it. (Good as it was expensive for the amount of cream in the tube) From the first dose and application I noticed a "little" improvement. Thought to myself "must just be in the mind" :) but every day noticed more and more improvement. I started on a low dose as advised and am adding more each week. I also made up a cream which I massage in two to three times a day to the areas.

Started with 1/4 tsp mixed in water am and dinner time for a week and now using 1/2 tsp 2 x day. Monday I will be upping it to 3/4 tsp 2 x day.

Made up a cream to apply topically. Add 3 tsp msm powder to each 100ml of cream. Massage into areas. I apply it 2-3 times day.

I just found this forum looking for treatments for other ailment for my husband and I had to share this with you. It is working for me and hopefully it will work for someone else.

I had severe back pain to the point I couldn't move around in bed without pain in my lower back which was throughout my leg as well. I looked it up online and found it was sciatic nerve pain. I had numbness, weakness and serious sharp pain. I started taking around 6g of MSM and vitamin b complex. Praise be to God my pain has gone.

In reply to Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France:

Hi Francesca,

I take 2-3gms of MSM powder daily in drinks and have found it works for my creaky knees and stiff finger joints better than anything else.

You might try belly dance classes for your back ache, I had severe lumbar pain with sciatica for several years after a strain injury to my back. I took a class in belly dance and was impressed by how you are taught to separate and work muscle groups on your torso, which makes them stronger, which gives more support to the spine and seems to pull it into alignment. It takes a few months to get really fit but you see improvement after a couple of weeks.
