Has anyone heard of taking omega 3 for neck/back nerve pain? It sounds wierd, but a friend on another website told me he took it trying to avoid having surgery and it relieved his pain within 2 days. I know Omega 3 is good for cholesterol issues but how could it work for pain? Any thoughts on this. Several others agreed with him and he said his doc recommended it. I started taking it today because I figured it can't hurt any. Let me know what you think. Thanks
One thing I can say already is that since I began taking this stuff yesterday, I have not had nearly as much burning pain - it is more like aching, so that is a bonus. But it's early yet, so I will let you know in a few days. I spoke with a PA at work and he recommended getting the best stuff you can find - made from sockeye salmon, not anchovies and other fish so keep that in mind. I am taking 2 1200mg gel caps twice a day with meals. Good Luck anyone who wants to give it a go.
