If so, thyroid and adrenals play an active role in pain and fatigue. If your dr said your thyroid is normal, question how he tested. If he just ran a TSH, ask what the level was. This isn't an adequate. If you're symptomatic, it should be treated regardless of what the tests show since they're so inaccurate.Lab Testing Is NOT Reliable! | Vitality 101
have you looked for underlying infections? Not many drs do.
B complex- if you have nerve pain, the you probably need an increase in B6 and methyl B12. I take a B complex and it doesn't have nearly enough B6 and B12 to help my nerve pain. especially if you're taking any prescriptions that rob the body of B vitamins. It's not stored in the body.
How are you taking the bromelain? It needs to be taken on an empty stomach 3 times a day. Otherwise it acts as a digestive aid.
definitely add magnesium malate or magnesium taurate (magnesium plus taurine) The malic acid in the mag malate is helpful for muscle pain
after doing a lot of research, I'm not a big fan of calcium supplementation. It's not needed for bone health.. magnesium and vit D are just as important. So many of our foods are fortified with calcium, that we get a lot more than we think. Calcium is best absorbed from foods and the body stores calcium so we don't need to replenish it the same way as we do magnesium. Unregulated calcium contributes to a lot of health problems including pain. If you want to supplement, you need to take twice as much magnesium as you do calcium otherwise you can't get the benefits of the magnesium because the calcium is using it all (they bind together)
The product Curamin is excellent for pain. It contains a highly absorbable form of curcumin (from turmeric), dlpa, nattokinase and boswellia. I've used it and it really good. Dr Teitelbaum recommends using a higher dose at the beginning then decreasing it as your pain is under control.
The product End Pain is also helpful... acts like a nsaid but none of the nasty long term side effects. It contains white willow, cherry extract and boswellia.
