I have osteo arthritis in my hips; not officially in menopause yet, but definately on the way. I can't take any hormones due to hormone receptive breast cancer (I'm a 3 year survivor). I take glucosamine condroitin and MSM. I don't know that it really does much, but I haven't found a great alternative.
Amber eyes, do you take the eggshell membrane in lieu of the glucosamine? I don't know if there would be a problem if one doubles up, or is it just a waste of money to do so?
I also wonder if the tamoxifen I have to take post breast cancer aggravates arthritis.

I had been taking Osteo-BiFlex for a number of years, and gradually developed GERD. After doing some research, I found out that Osteo-BiFlex has something in it that causes GERD. I did more research for an alternative, and discovered Natural Eggshell Membrane. It does the same thing as Osteo-BiFlex w/o the side effect of GERD. Well, I have been taking it for about a month now, and not only do I have more flexibility in my knees, but the pain is gone as well as the GERD. Has anyone else had success with this?
