You get the stuff from bone broths that are made from joints. Knees are the easiest to get if going with beef I believe, but any articulating joint works. Great for the joints, if a deficiency is the problem.

That happened to me. Turns out I have fibromyalgia. This diet pretty much cured it. Those are also telltale signs of vitamin A toxicity (pre-yellow skin). Maybe you're eating too much liver or cod liver oil? Just an idea.
