Hi Linda

Like you I also have ppms and it affected my mobility and balance. Not sure if this is the same but I get a lot of pain in my neck radiating to shoulders and tops of arms, sometimes feeling as though my head is too heavy to hold up.

Not sure if it is related to ms, as two months ago I was also diagnosed with RA. May be worth having a word with your ms nurse or GP.

Take care

I take 3 Tumeric tablets each day which help hugely with joint and muscular pain, I have what the doctors kindly call ‘a degenerative bone disease – arthritis) which causes the pains but Tumeric really brings down the inflammation and leaves me mostly pain free within 3-4 days.
I get mine from COSTCO as they’re cheaper there than anywhere else but they are a brand called Youtheory which you can also get from Amazon if you’re not costco minded xxx

PS – my 11 year old arthritic beagle has 1 a day as well and within 3-4 days of starting her on them she went from being unable to climb the stairs or stand up unaided to bouncing around like a puppy again
