Hi,
Thanks for your query.

There is no study which proves any correlation between coca cola and joint pains. Therefore if you are suffering from the same, certain investigations are required for a diagnosis.
Hope this answers your query.

1. are there positive and or negative effects of glucosamine as related to the aformentioned joint pain and 2. are there long term effects from the use of naproxen sodium for pain relief

Hi,

Generalised joint pains may be due to osteoporosis and yes, glucosamine has positive effect on the same (to some extent), with no negative effects.

Constant/ long term use of naproxen sodium in spite of being a safe drug may cause gastroenteritis, therefore its usage should be intermittent.

Hope this answers your query.
