   I've had similar problems with my wrists and shoulders, and the one
   thing that helped most was taking 3 minutes a day to do a set of complete
   range-of-motion wrist exercises with really small dumb-bells (5 pounds
   or less).  Holding the weights palm-up and rolling them from fingertip
   to palm and back really did the trick.

   I correct shoulder pain by doing 5-10 very slow pushups just before bed,
   or by holding a dumbbell over my shoulder and letting my hand dangle over
   the back of the couch while watching TV.  A few minutes of that and my
   arm turns to spaghetti, but it feels better in the morning.

   I've been told that not getting enough B-vitamins drops the effectiveness of
   other supplements you take; they'll be washed out before the body can use
   them, and they tend to get eaten up faster when under stress.  I also take
   cod-liver oil to keep my joints nice and gushy.  Your doctor may disagree.
