A regular runner here, averaging 40-60 miles a week for about 7 years. I wanted to know if anybody could enlighten me on how these tablets have helped them and what your symptoms were, because, as of recently I've been experiencing joint pain...and age isn't the factor! I'm a little worried it's arly signs of something else. The joint stiffness comes when I have been inactive, or waking up in the morning. The stiffness is coming from inside of the knees and sometimes, when I wake in the night,my arms too. I eat a balanced diet, although no gluten as I'm a celiac, so lots of fish, vegatbles fruit and gluten free breads/cereals, nuts etc...

I've stopped taking glucosamine as there's no way of the supplement getting to the inside of the joint to replace cartiledge.

There's a good posting about morning stiffness in this thread http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/health--injury/general-stiffness-especially-in-the-morning/233793.html

Also FF what made you try these initially? Was it pain in the knees?
