No: Not to my knowledge unless your joint pain is dues to some specific severe vitamin deficiency syndrome.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Don't think so.: Stretching, heat from a shower or heating pad (don't get burned), massage, & acupuncture can help. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can help with both pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Examples are ibuprofen (like Advil, Nuprin or Motrin), Naproxen sodium (like Aleve, (naproxen) Naprosyn, Anaprox) or Asprin (such as Bayer, Ecotrin, Ascriptin). Avoid NSAID's if pregnant or allergic.

Well, not exactly vitamins, but fish oil (High EPA/DHA content) will help with joint pain because if will alter the balance of inflammation- causing and inflammation- preventing chemicals in your system. Costco brand is pretty good. Topically, some people get relief from Arnica, capsaicin, or liniments. I feel acetaminophen may be better as a first drug treatment (up to 4 gms/day) than NSAIDs.
