Fish oil cured muscle pains

Sally Cowell - geofsal@bigpond.com

In order to cope with the painful coccyx I compensate by standing or sitting in awkward postures. This causes considerable problems with backache from standing. I sometimes sit on one cheek which gives me pain in stomach muscles. My most used sitting position is balanced on the chair edge which gives problems with the top/back of my legs. After taking fish oil for about a week all back ache and stomach muscle pains completely disappeared. The leg problems are greatly improved. I have no idea why this should work for me.

The improvement for me was dramatic, though it only cured the muscle pains, not the coccyx pain. I have no idea if the fish oil will help others, but as it is a food it does not have side affects and is not expensive. The brand name is Fishaphos it says it is natural fish oil. Some information on the side of the bottle: A natural fish oil concentrate for the temporary relief of arthritic pain and as a dietary source of essential Omega 3 Marine Triglycerides, Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) which are often in short supply in a typical Western diet.
