  • Cissus causing pain?

    Backstory:

    My wrist started hurting from doing some bench pressing. Gradually was getting worse because my strength was going up more and more.

    Did deadlifts on tuesday - wrist was hurting even gripping that. No back pain or anything else.. felt great.

    Wednesday - Did a little cardio - no back pain, no wrist pain.

    ** I either added in Cissus on tuesday or wednesday**

    Thursday - Bench press, no back pain, wrapped my wrists all good.

    Friday - Wake up with my back feeling sore right at the base of my spine. Bend over just a little bit and I can feel it being weak. I do squats anyway. They didn't hurt when I was doing squats but I could tell it didn't feel normal. I figured I was just tight and I stretched out and warmed up extra before them.. No dice.

    Saturday - back pain still there, bugging me because I haven't done anything to cause this.

    Sunday (today) - Still have back pain and now my right elbow has started to have sharp pains in it when I extend my arm to reach for something. I haven't been doing anything with either my back or my arm since wednesday/thurs.

    The only thing I can figure is that the cissus is CAUSING these problems - because before I started the cissus i had been doing the same workout, the same cardio, etc.. With ZERO back pain. ZERO elbow pain... just some wrist pain more from a bad grip than anything.

    Wondering if I should discontinue the cissus or drop the dosage or what?

    The times that I have tried the cissus before, I vaguely remember my back feeling weak before as well. I don't think I made the connection as well as I am now, though.

    Been taking between 5-8g of cissus per day.

    Thoughts?

    that's odd. Why do you think cissus would cause pain, if that is the reason? It always cured any elbow pain I had, but I always has back pain. I haven't taken any joint support supps in a while, and I don't have any back pain.....but my shoulders and wrists feel awful......lol.

      It was more of the timing of the situation than anything else. Hadn't had anything else change but adding in the cissus.

      I will say I have discussed it with a knowledgeable member here and we've come to the conclusion that it is most likely related to a lack of estrogen and not related to the cissus.

          Stop what would be causing a lack of estrogen and let my body get back to homeostasis.
