Do You Take Acetaminophen for Chronic Joint Pain?

If you take Acetaminophen for chronic joint pain, like I did for years because my bad knees until I got smarter, then you need to read this:

Each year Acetaminophen, widely known by one of it's brand name's Tylenol, results in 100,000+ calls to Poison Control Centers, 56,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitilizations and more than 450 deaths from liver failure.

Many researchers believe that regular users of Acetaminophen double the risk their kidney cancer. The incidents of kidney cancer in the United States has risen 126% in the last 60 years. Even if Acetaminophen is responsible for even a small number of kidney cancers, the risks outweight the benefits of taking Acetaminophen for chronic joint pain.

Acetaminophen is the major metabolite of the banned drug, Phenacetin, which was banned because of it's severe toxicity to kidney and dangers to the bladder.

MyAchingKnees believes, due not only to personal experience, but to various opinions from medical periodicals and medical research that large doses of OTC pain killers are needed to relieve most chronic joint pain. All OTC analgesics have side effects,.......for instance, Ibuprofen or Celebrex are associated with heart attacks and stomach bleeding, so why would you take excessive does of it?

We believe that the prudent person (and Physician) first tries treatments that are much less dangerous, such as Chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, heat therapy, and supplementation such as Glucosamine, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Methylsulphonylmethane MSM) or other non prescription drug solutions either by themselves or in combination.
