I have back problems so was trying one of the top brands of liquid fish oil, not cod liver oil. I have been through 3 bottles so far and have been taking about 3 TABLESPOONS daily, NOT TEASPOONS. Recently I started having inflamed and swollen joints in my hands, some stiffness also, can this be the result of excessive fish oil. I am starting to hear it can sometimes cause more problems than it helps. I have stopped taking it a few days ago and waiting to see what happens. What has been you experience in a similar circumstance? The only other bad effects I have noticed so far was increased brusing, which I never had before.
Joint pain is not one of the usual side effects of fish oil. It does thin blood, so may increase bruising. Fish oil dosage various depending on a person's health issues. You may consider a trial discontinuation of your fish oil and any other supplements check for any adverse response.
