I am sorry that some unscrupulous marketeers overpriced you and most probably sold you MSM in tablet form. My experience has been that the MSM tablets don't work! I purchase MSM White Crystals and capsulate them myself. The only side effect that I get from MSM Crystals is that my hair & fingernails grow at least twice as fast as normal. The other factor you need to know about using MSM Crystals is that it depletes the Vit."C" from your body. In order for MSM Crystals to rebuild body cells and do Trigeminal Nerve repair, you must take Vit."C" in a natural form every day, i.e. Orange juice unprocessed. The MSM binds with the Vit."C" to build new tissue. With regard to your knee problem, a lot depends on the type of knee damage you have. If you have arthritis of the knee, then MSM & DMSO might improve your condition. If you have destructive damage to the bone or cartilage, then I might suggest you try " Syn-Vic" which was just approved by the FDA two years ago. Caution, 5 injections of Syn-Vic is $3,000.00 Syn-Vic comes from Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which your body produced as a child. As you grew older your body stopped producing HA and that's when joint and eye problems start showing up later in life. HA rebuilds the tissue and bone. cf. ABC/Primetime 02-Nov-2000/ "The Fountain of Youth". I hope this answers some of your questions.
