    I have a long history of chronic migraines but hate the idea of all the chemicals the doctor wanted to give me in the form of prescription drugs. Yesterday I could feel some muscle tightening in my neck and my halo started, ONE dose of 400 mg Bromelain stopped that migraine in it's tracks! My neck muscle relaxed the halo disappeared! In 16 years of dealing with migraines, this is the FIR ... Show Full Comment

    I have ongoing sinus issues which cause extreme pain at times, which traditional pain meds won't even touch. I've had sinus surgery (never again!) and it didn't help at all. Bromelain is the only thing that really helps me and it acts quickly with no side-effects (for me). Interactions aren't an issue for me because I'm not on any meds. I only use it when needed.

    I had surgery November 16,2009 on my back. It was my seventh surgery. My doctor told me to take a Bromelain 250mg. My doctor said that it would not only heal me faster, but help with my pain by reducing swelling and inflamation at surgery site as well as internally. The results were miraculous, to say the least! I recovered 2x as fast with this surgery than any of my previous surgeries and the pai ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Have had two major back surgeries (at age 39 and 48) and was determined to be a "chronic pain" patient at age 40. Narcotics were not helping much and began to see a chiropractor. She has assisted in me getting off all pain meds and has added bromelain. With the combination of Chiro and Bromelain I have less pain than on narcotics.

    Comment:
    After removal of L4-L5 disk 5 years ago, a scar tissue build up in my lower spine causes me moderate to severe lower back pain. In between epidural cortisone injections, the bromelain does "take the edge off". Especially when I prefer to avoid oxycodone, hydrocodone, aleve, and other anti inflammatories. The GNC brand is easier to swallow (60 tabs for $10), but the Vitamin World has t ... Show Full Comment
