Based on your wonderful suggestions, I have started taking the Fem Balance and the other two that go with it... A vit D supp and a Calcium supp.

However am I crazy or what but everytime I take calcium my joints begin to hurt really bad.   I mean i'm hurting all over like crazy. I started taking the supp's 2 days ago twice a day.

I had a chiro tell me once that the pain in my thumb joints was calcium buildup.

Anyone else have this issue with calcium?  it happens when I drink milk too of course since it's an avoid!!

Thanks in advance..

whenever I take calcium I always wake up with restless less. I prefer to eat the skin and bones in my canned salmon and spinach. No problems with that. I didn't specifically notice joint pain but it's entirely possible. Sorry but I'm not going to take it to find out. tried many types and many times and it's a no go. So...yes, I have issues with it

how much dairy are you allowed in your personalized swami?
did you click on the arthritis box?

Well the type doesn't seem to matter.  I started taking some a year ago - forget the brand - because I was hitting menopause and I read that it was good to do and I had to stop because of joint pain.  

So when I was asking about how to get rid of hot flashes, folks here recommended the FemBal, DetoxiCal-D  and Clear Cal.  

And now the pain is immense... esp. at night.  So I'm going to keep on with the Fem Balance and cut out the other two and see what happens...

I just googled Calcium and Joint pain and got alot of threads where folks were complaining and one of the major causes seems to be a combination of D and Calcium.  

So who knows.. but the Calcium does seem to be an issue.

I do eat alot of eggs and we juice with Collards and greens at least 3 times a week.  And I do have high iron in my blood so who knows.. maybe the calcium irritates the iron response, which can be awful joint pain if I don't get my monthly blood draws for excess iron.  

But that wouldn't explain the rest of the people complaining about joint pain when they start taking calcium and going away when they stop.

Calcium needs to be balanced with other minerals, especially magnesium, which is necessary for calcium to be appropriately used by the body.  Just another thing to consider.

calcium and mag definately need to be balanced and I've also recently read that supplemental calcium is no good and can calcify your arteries when taken in large doses at one time. That large bursts cause a higher risk of heart disease but calcium from food is absorbed much slower. All this made me feel better for not taken calcium. I don't like too many supplements, they always seem to screw things up. Vitamin D is just as, if not more important for bone health. I take D, B12, transdermal mag and HCL for now. That's enough

Walking and jogging are good to keep your bones strong too and while outside you get to make some vitamin D.  I can have sore, stiff joints or bones and after a few minutes of walking it eases up and lets me get on with my trek.

If I take calcium, I am going to be in pain if I do not balance it with magnesium.

I take mag at night to help with the morning but I also recently have been applying transdermal mag during the day. It seems to be effective but I'm not exactly sure how to tell. I did find the Chris Kresser article interesting

Agreed, it's getting old but hoping to build up my levels the quickest way possible as mag is needed for so many bodily functions and lots of people are depleted. The mag I take at night is not absorbable so I'm sure I'm depleted especially if I have low stomach acid. You need mag to make HCL and you need HCL to absorb mag. Balance this, balance that, yada, yada

Calcium can only wind up in your bones if you are getting necessary nutrients that insure its absorption. Otherwise it can wind up in soft tissue and lead to calcification.

How much calcium are you taking, and how much magnesium have you been taking? What form of each? If the calcium is being absorbed but the magnesium is not, then you'll end up with too much calcium.

Blues, My aunt recently s tarted 'The Virgin Diet", it involves giving up the top seven food intolerances and she had previously had painful lumps from calcium deposit that have disappeared in a short space of time.  Something worth checking out.

magnesium deficient diet + dairy + time = problem

calcium also needs k2 to be utilized correctly.

leafy greens ideal when grown in good soil.

I don`t know but almost all of my calcium supplement experience seems to hurt me.
It hurts near the kidney area which I suspect it is the kidney. That is why I always choose veggies now.


What has surprised me? What has touched me? What has inspired me?

I don't know that I have a good answer for you except that one of my sisters has the exact problem with calcium as you are having. She simply cannot take calcium supplements. She has very good bones, though. Over eighty years old, and her back is as straight as a board! No osteopenia bothering this gal!
