@terrydclaar I now take it in pill form from ethanaturals.com No side effects but a bit of sleepiness, which I enjoy! Lori

You are welcome, Terry. Lori
Lori, I went to the ethanaturals website. They show 4 kratom pill products on their home page. Can you recommend one to try for PN pain? In the descriptions only the Sunrise specifically mentions pain. But perhaps you know more you could tell us. Thanks.
@jesfactsmon Hank, I use Susan's Endless Etha Kratom Blend, and it works well. I also bought Maeng Da Etha Kratom Blend, but I have not tried it yet. However, Maeng Da in the powder form always worked for pain. Maeng Da powders have always worked for me, so I bought it. Maeng Da Kratoms, in general, are known for helping pain. Also bought Etha Sunset, and that also works. Just so you know, and I do not know if I said this to you already, you really have to work with how many pills to take. I can take less of the pills than the powder, for some reason. I am 5 feet, 3 inches, 160 pounds. A touch of meat to the bones, I like to say! I take 9 pills at a time, and they leave me pain free I accidentally took 8 last time, so I will take that amount again. If your wife does not get results, she may either have to take more pills, or change the type of pill. I would start with more pills, the next time she takes it, to really see if that particular Kratom helps. Good luck, and no vile taste! Fabulous. Lori
Good info Lori, thanks. I see they have more than just the 4 kinds shown on their home page. We'll give one or more of them a try. Thanks again. By the way, I hope to get back to Glencoe to visit, was there last in 2003 when my mom sold her house and moved away. My wife's neuropathy and overall health has curtailed most of our travel the past few years, making our retirement a bit different than we had expected. Chemo came into our lives from out of the blue and then PN did as well. What gets us through is love for each other and abiding faith in God. Best, Hank
Lori, 9 tablets sounds like quite a bit. What does this amount to in terms of mg of Kratom?
@terrydclaar, Thank you for the private message. It's a good suggestion/questions and I thought members should know that this function is already available to them. You suggested that Mayo reverse the order of postings to have the newest posting appear first with first initial posting appearing last. That way users do not need to constantly scroll to the end to find the current and most recent posting.
You can change the option to show the posts in newest to oldest yourself by going to the top of any discussion and selecting the drop down menu that currently says Oldest to Newest and then change it to say Newest to Oldest. I use this option all of the time and you are right, it is helpful.

@terrydclaar Hi Terry, In theory, 9 pills are about two and a half grams of Kratom. However, next time I take it, I am going to put them down on a gram scale that I have, and actually weigh them. When I think about it, it seems like they should weigh more than this, but I do not know. However, the company advertises them at about this weight. What is odd, is when I took Kratom powder, I needed at least 4 grams worth to take away the pain. Each company has Kratom that acts a bit differently, so I have to take the least amount I can, to take away my pain. As of now, 8 or 9 pills seem to do that….Lori

@jesfactsmon Hi Hank, Somehow I managed to miss your post here. Come back to Glencoe! A gorgeous community. You know, my neuropathy started within 3 weeks of a lumpectomy, but I did not have chemo. However, I did have radiation right into the tumor, at the time of surgery. My neuro doc thinks I may have an autoimmune response to the tumor, but blood tests did not show that, and sometimes they just do not. All in all, I will never know what caused it, for sure. All I know is that there is no diabetes, family history…. and now, severe pain. I wish you well with the Kratom. It does help. Most things do not. My best regards. God is good. Lori R.
Lori, yes, severe pain, I understand. I have seen it up close firsthand. I wish I could take some of it off my wife's hands once in a while to give her a break. I ordered some kratom from ETHA on 3/21 and am hoping it gets here pretty soon. Although Linda is just starting the Protocol of that facebook group which John Bishop talked about, so she'll be holding off on taking the kratom for a while anyway I guess. I hope she gets some good results from the Protocol. It would be nice to see her have a pain free week someday, instead of just a good day here, a so-so day there, and 3 awful days in a row, which is how it seems to go now. If she does not get good results then the only next step I can see is to visit your guy in Riverside, Ill. and start the scrambler therapy. Hoping to have the $$$ available for it someday. Thanks for your good wishes!
John, I like it. Thanks!
@jesfactsmon Hi Hank, For what my two cents are worth, there is no reason why your wife cannot do the protocol, and take the Kratom when the pain is severe enough to make her cry, or scream. They really will be ok together. That protocol will not work instantly. It may take some months to feel. Who really knows? I just hate to hear how much pain she is in. Just remember to start low with the pills, perhaps 3 pills, and work up, as needed. Best with lots of water, on an empty stomach, for best results. If she does not get relief, slowly up the pills to find her sweet spot. If you do go to Norm Black, he is a real decent guy. Maybe he would charge you less. Just don't mention I told you so! Ha! Anyway, my best again. I usually have my worst pain at night. Read that neuropathy pain is usually worst at nite, something to do with circadian rhythms. Without medical marijuana or Kratom, I could not get thru the night. Be safe, my friend, Lori
Thanks Lori. I am thinking about starting to try Kratom for my severe foot PN issues that keep me from sleeping.. How long does it take for Kratom to take effect for you? What time do you take them at night? Thanks, Terry
Thanks Hank. Guess I just did not take the time to check out this option. I will reverse the order on my display. Thanks again, Terry
Thanks for the information John. You are very helpful on these pages. Terry
terrydklaar, are you related to an Officer Klaar who patrols Delaware State Park at the Indian River in Delaware? Peggy
