Better But With Side Effects


On several occasions I've written about pain from arthritis in my lower back, thighs, knees, wrists, pelvic area, and over the years have taken many supplements to help with this, but hand on heart I cannot say that any have truly worked (Please, no one suggest taking borax because I've taken this for quite a long time, and I live in hope that it is doing some good but the arthritis has never gone away).

In April this year I had the two covid vaccinations, and it was shortly after that I experienced a massive flare-up of symptoms, and wondered whether the flare-up was connected to the vaccinations. However, about this time I was taking MSM, and continued to do so until just recently, but my arthritis symptoms increased plus I was thoroughly depressed, and with the pain and depression some days I didn't want to carry on living. Then one day I left off the MSM and within a day or so I began feel much better. The arthritis pain was still there but to a lesser degree, but the depression had lifted. I honestly believe that I was reacting badly to the MSM but who can say?

Recently, in the hope of living an active life as possible for an octogenarian, I purchased some DHEA, 25mgs, and it worked wonderfully. My walking, balance, energy, definitely improved and I felt as though I had a better quality of life. BUT (why is there always a but?) my anger levels went through the roof over the smallest thing, and I understand that this a side effect of taking DHEA. I've tried taking half a capsule but this doesn't work. Yes, the anger issues lessen, but it does not help very much with the energy levels and arthritis.

Does anyone have a solution to this?
