About a month and a half ago, my mom's assistant offered me a slimming tea. It's called Power Slim and it's in powder form. You just mix it in 8 oz. hot water and drink. In my desperation to shed off some of the pounds I gained since I have stopped smoking, I thought I'd try the tea. I ordered for a box which is equivalent to a month's supply.
After having it for a few days, I felt pain on my left knee. I was bowling once a week so I didn't suspect it was the tea that caused it. That week, the approach (it's where you take a slide before releasing the ball) was kind of sticky. Thought I overdid it, and since I'm already in my forties and overweight, that caused the pain, though it was the first time I ever experienced a knee problem. It wasn't much of a pain and I was not bothered by it because I can still walk, exercise and bowl. It'll probably go away after a few days, I thought. The pressure is felt if I had to walk a lot and bend my knee for a long time. I noticed that it's inflamed.
The pain was still there after a few weeks, that's when I began to worry. Could I be having osteoarthritis? Am I not too young for that? I did a little research on it and found that it can be genetic, I could get it even if I'm only in my early forties. I was contemplating on visiting the doctor and if I should ask for Glucosamine prescription, but I waited. I went back to everything I did, ate and drink the past two weeks. Everything else was norm except for the slimming tea. So that's it! I stopped taking it and though it took a while to ease the pain, my knee is now back to normal and the inflammation has subside. I swear to myself, I am never going to take anything again without knowing what's in them.
