Until recently I just assumed that the pain in my hands was joint pain, but since it has come back recently I've noticed there's pain on the bone in between the joints in addition to the pain on the joints. I also have pain in certain spots on my ribs which seems to be bone pain. I read something recently on Stephen Buhner's web site. He recommended an herb called boneset. I wonder if the medications and supplements I've been taking for pain such as those for nerve pain, inflammation, and collagen tissue aren't effective because I have a different type of pain.
