What do ya'll take for your joints?

I have been taking glucosamine/chondroiton for a while with no improvements. I still have pains in joints(mostly knees and shoulders). Are there any good remedies for joint recovery?

I take a cocktail of:

1mg Glucosamine Sulfate
1mg Lysine
1mg Glycine
1mg Vitamin C
1 Aleve

Twice a day (breakfast, dinner, except aleve: just once a day). Been doing it for awhile when I get overuse type of injuries (which are typically ankle and knee from running and occasionally shoulder from swimming)

I take the above until the pain and swelling subsides. Typically around a week or two.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

I would suggest going to a doctor. I mean,you're asking a bunch of Ford Fanatics what to do,when you should also consult with a doctor before taking any new medicine/vitamins. Not to mention that a doctor could advise you better than anyone of us could. Doctors are a GOOD thing you know...

LOL...why go to the doctor when you have one on here right? Seriously though, if you are experiencing arthritis it could be due to a number of things...but since this is a chronic thing for you then you may have some cartilage damage and basically have bone on bone in your joints. Without examining you, I could only guess as to what is going on with you. If the joint pain gets worse with exercise, then I would expect that it is from cartilage damage. Or you could have bursitis. Either way, glucosamine and chondroitin are good supplements to take...also, plenty of fluids keeps the joints lubed. I would start out with a weeks course of motrin 800mg three times daily with meals to get rid of the inflammation. Or go see your doc about a cortisone shot. A good pulse dose steroid (cortico not anabolic!) regimen would likely do you some good.
