Knee Pain - Can't Sleep

MyAchingKnees.com received another question on sleeping with chronic knee pain. Joyce from Eugene, Oregon asked: "I have knee pain, and at night it is at it's most severe when I try to go to sleep. Do you have any recommendations on sleeping with knee pain?"

I e-mailed Joyce back basically telling her this, which I am posting here because there have got to be more people with this chronic knee pain - not sleeping problem.

You have got to treat the causes of knee pain and not the effects,...insomnia or trouble sleeping. Although Rx Pain Meds may be a viable solution to some, I would suggest starting with high doses of pharmaceutical quality nutritional supplements (multi-minerals and anti-oxidants) and add an alike quality optimizer such as Glucosamine and Omega 3 Fatty Acids - this is what I do.

I also have used on our products called "Pure Rest" which is a pharmaceutical grade Melatonin at 2 mg per tablet. Pharmaceutical grade means, of course, that the product receives a U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP) label for meeting USP laboratory standards for potency, uniformity and disintegration.

I very rarely use Melatonin, but when I do I just let a 2 mg tablet dissolve under my tongue and 15-20 minutes later I drift off to sleep. I have tried 4 mg (2 tablets) and boy do I rack out hard! Nothing wakes me, but if you do not get seven to eight hours of sleep (at least for me) you'll wake drowsy.

Anyway Joyce, to give you an idea of the cost. A bottle of 56 tablets cots $17.94 retail, $16.61 wholesale and 10% off of that for scheduled orders.

  2. If you fail it doesn't mean you are weak, you fail because there are things that are not meant for you or not meant to happen. Accept failures and take it as a challenge to become a better person. Visit my site for more information. Thank you and have a nice day.
