Joint Pain Disappears

We wrote recently in HEALTH NOTES about our success with Niacinamide (a B vitamin) for patients with anxiety. Not long ago a Center doctor saw a patient named Deb who is a 28-year-old accountant. She has been taking Niacinamide 750mg one capsule twice daily. The doctor spoke with her on the phone a few weeks after she started the Niacinamide and she reported "I am cool, calm and collected and have felt this way since I started the Niacinamide". She had been using Xanax daily to control her anxiety but no longer needed it because the Niacinamide effectively eliminated her anxiety.

Recently she returned to the office for a follow up regarding her anxiety. As she sat in her chair, she smiled. She said that in her previous visits she neglected to speak about the shoulder pain she had been experiencing for more than six months. She had seen an orthopedic physician and had undergone 2 months of physical therapy with no relief and decided she would learn to live with the discomfort. At her first visit, her anxiety was so life disrupting that she had failed to even mention the pain in each of her shoulders. It turns out that soon after starting Niacinamide for her anxiety, the shoulder pain disappeared, completely!

In 1955, a Connecticut physician, William Kaufman, M.D., Ph.D. wrote a paper describing his use of Niacinamide for arthritis pain (J. Amer Geriat. Society, 1955 3:927-936). Kaufman reported that high-dose niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, was beneficial in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. He documented improvements in joint function, range of motion, increased muscle strength and endurance, over long periods in these patients. Reported effects began after 1-3 months on niacinamide and reached their peak between one and three years. What a benefit, high dose niacinamide is useful for treating anxiety and some forms of arthritis.
