Do you suffer from agonizing joint pain?
You say you do.
Well then, you know how miserable it can make your life.
How the constant pain stops you from being able to live a full and active life.
Sometimes even the simplest tasks that we used to take for granted can be extremely painful, like using your hands or just taking a walk.
Every time you take a step, every set of stairs you climb. It can be punishing to live with joint pain.
Now, there are two main types of drugs recommended to combat joint pain.
The first type are NSAIDs, (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) like Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and Naproxin Sodium (Aleve) which are available over the counter.
The second are opioids, which are available by prescription only.
Now the results that people get from both of these types of drugs are mixed at best, and many people don’t get any relief at all when they take them.
And worse still, both can cause some nasty side effects.
Here are 21 side effects that you could experience by taking one of these drugs;
- Skin rash or itchiness
- Upset stomach or stomach pain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Peptic ulcers
- Drowsiness and lack of energy
- Ringing in ears
- Loss of appetite
- Dry mouth
And if that’s not enough, opioids are also highly addictive. In fact opioid addiction and abuse has become an epidemic.
In the U.S. alone 128 people die every day from opioid overdose. Now all of this bad news may lead you to ask if there is a better solution.
