If you are dealing with aches and pains in your joints, you need to keep reading – this supplement is part of my daily routine no matter where I am
Joint pain – knee pain to be real specific, was the first sign of my illness. Widespread joint aches ultimately ensued and became the most long-lasting, crippling piece of my Lyme fight, until I discovered two supplements that have literally been life changing [not even exaggerating a tiny bit]
When I considered myself “better” but not well, joint pain was my greatest struggle. Even though I saw a rheumatologist [a doctor who specializes in musculoskeletal and autoimmune conditions] BEFORE my diagnosis, I did a final visit with one just to like triple-check that I didn’t also have another disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, that could explain this lingering pain. My entire workup was negative, except for the inflammatory markers in my blood that were sky high. So Lyme arthritis was here to stay 🤦🏻♀️ I had heard that permanent joint damage was a possibility in those whoseLyme was left untreated for a long time, but I had just hoped that wasn’t my case.
My baseline at this point was pain, so I was given some prescription drugs that are used to treat arthritis and that was great, until I started having symptoms of stomach ulcers literally within a week. I’ve already been down the bleeding intestinal ulcer road and wasn’t trying to go there again. That’s when I started my research, trial and error and discovered Solgar No. 7
Solgar No. 7 is a joint supplement that contains ingredients such as vitamin C, Boswellia serrata, turmeric root, collagen, white willow bark, ginger root and pepper spices. These 7 ingredients combined into one supplement are claimed to provide improvement in joint comfort in just 7 days [hence where the ‘No. 7’ comes from] – and I can honestly attest to that.

This supplement has literally been a game changer. When I don’t take it for a few days I can seriously feel the difference – more pain and stiffness in my joints. I subscribe and save to this supplement on Amazon and I don’t go a day without it. With it, I’ve been able to work out in ways I couldn’t for a long time – a jog, the stairmaster, cycling classes – even just walking long distances or being on my feet all day is tolerable.
If I never see the day where my arthritic joints are healed, at least I can feel like they are.
