Works for me. I suffer from mild joint pain, but also some kind of nerve pain, as yet undiagnosed. Awaiting a test for that. Will let you know more, after the test. All I know is that Devil's Claw lessens the pain and when I stop taking it, the pain returns. Prescription drugs badly affect my stomach, as I also have a Hiatus hernia. So this herb has been the best option so far.
I had Nuss surgery 2.5 years ago and since then I have pain related to metal bars. Uncontrolled it gets so bad that I end up at emergency and only medication that can stop it is morphine. I have been taking Devil's claw for last 1.5 year and it is amazing. It keeps my pain at the level that allows me to function. At the same time it does not have side effects as other over the counter antiinflamatoty (for example advil or tylenol).
Yes it does work for me, I was having great difficulty stooping or kneeling, thanks to Devil's Claw, still having a bit of pain, but it is getting better and I'm still taking the tablets, it is superb.......... I really love it.
This is a fabulous herb that helps me treat symptoms of sore joints. When I was younger I fell down a double compartment and have never been the same since.
It does not give me the usual diarrhea I have when taking all the normal joint medicines and mineral oils that are a complete mess.
Try it with birdseed and goji berries!
It may be the mineral oil that is giving you all the diarrea. Give your stomach and toilet a break.
Based on my research the Devil's Claw also known as Wood Spider at the scientific name of Harpagophytum procumbens, this plant is have two active ingredients in Devil's Claw are harpagoside and beta-sitosterol. It is claimed that these possess anti-inflammatory properties. The British Herbal Pharmacopoeia recognises Devil's Claw as having analgesic, sedative and diuretic properties. Most studies involve chronic use rather than acute treatment of pain.

I was getting hip pains from about the age of 40, the doctor prescibed tablets that made me feel hungry so I didn't like taking them. started taking Devils Claw and didn't suffer so much or so often, it's possible that it was just a colncidence but I ran out a little while ago and noticed the pains just starting to creep in again, have ordered some more.
I have a 6 mnth old baby & left leg never felt good since. I'm 31 & was told had siactic. Went through physical therapy didn't help. Devil's Claw worked for me in 1 dose.
Hi my daughter fell from a tree and fractured her wrist. I gave her devil claw instead of ibrufen as she has been on them for 5wks with nerve pain. She still has no feeling in her fingers which is rather a worry. I give her 1 tablet every 4hrs with her paracetomal and arnica symp/comp.
Have been diagnosed with severe oesteoarthritis of hip started taking glucosamine, cod liver oil and devils claw and sciatica has resolved along with Pilates and low impact exercise helping. First time I have slept in months. I am 46 and wish not to have hip replacement for as long as possible as it doesn't solve the issues.
My daughter has chronic fatigue syndrome , one symptom is very achy muscles, has this helped any one with the pain.
