YES!! I have had great results. I've only lost a few pounds, not enough to make a difference, I have changed my shoes. I'm wearing shoes with much better support (Dexters, Rockports,Easy Spirit, etc.).
But my heel spurs rarely bother me and never to the point where I cannot walk anymore or even limp. I attribute my recovery to Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfates. I have been taking them now for about 3 months. I take 1,000 to 1,500 mg each day, even on the days I forget and only take 500 mg. my feet feel great. I feel like I should be on the payroll of the vitamin companies, because I recommend them to anyone I hear of with joint pain or arthritis. The only negative I've heard about them is for people with diabetes. These products are ammino sugars and are produced naturally in the body, but diabetics must ask their Dr. before the take them.
I heartily recommend you try them. They are expensive. I have found The Vitamin Shoppe to be the best price. If there isn't a Vitamin Shoppe around you, try their mail order catalog. I just purchased a bottle of 120 pills for $24.95.
