Chronic Pain, alternative Treatment

Posted by @cipaul, Jul 11, 2017

I have had chronic pain for 17 years. I know what I’m going to say will be met with doubt, but please try what I say, even though it is not completely backed up by sceince. I was on heavy doses of OPIOIDS for 16 years with no help, relieveing my pain, then I started to take Kratom, for the last year I have been Pain Free!!! If you try it , you will have to try different strains, to find out what works best for you

@cipaul, wow, thanks for the information, and congratulations for finding something that works for your pain. I too have RLS, i think. I dont necessarily have to get up and move around, but my legs hurt, especially the calves. I get a really squishy feeling in my calves thats pretty upsetting. Maybe this would work for me. Thanks, Diane

I hope it helps, the pain I had was,back legs hips, could luck & let me know how you do!

Hello cpaul:. I’m Victorios 69. Read your post re:. Kratom. What exactly is that? How did you discover it? Does it work topically or like an opiod
Taken by mouth, block the pain signals to the brain?

Dear Virtuous69, just Google, Kratom, you will find out alot! It is in the form of Powders, Leaves, Tinctures, Resins, &CAPSULES which is the way I take it, because it is Very Gross taste! It works by going to the Opioid sensers in your brain, telling your brain that you just took an Opioid, but without the “HIGH”, that you would get from an Opioid!! I take, depending how much pain I have, 6 to 8 capsules with 8oz of water, every 4-6 hours. When you Google it, read what every strain does, because every one is different. Just to tell you a little, Maeng Da will give you a boost in energy, & will relieve pain, while some others will relax you & or make you tired!! I hope this helps, let me know.

JUst a comment/? I too have chronic pain and take opiods and constantly hear about the excessive use of them and they take them to get high. I can say I HAVE NEVER GOTTEN A “HIGH” just less pain. They must really have to take A LOT.

I guess everybody is different, like the different strains of kratom, but I was taking 80mg of oxycontin & was getting a Buzz, which was not wanted or needed, Thank You for your response!!

can I ask a question? Did your Dr. progress you to 80 mg. or start you at 80 ? When I said I had less pain that is exactly what I meant, I still have significant pain( I also have lidocaine patches 5%) it is just to a level I can function so my Dr. see no need to increase and I am only on 30mg. and she talks like it is a LOT so I don’t complain about the pain I still have. I do on occasion have a good day and do not take all doses but I also have horrible days. I have been made to feel like I am an abuser when I suggest an increase. On the flip side I do not want to sleep my days away. I am on my 3rd occurrence of cancer and am not sure what my future holds. I would wish for that perfect drug that makes the pain go away and I can still enjoy my days !!! I have 5 grandsons LOL

Yes. I did progress, from 5mg Oxycodone, plus 10mg of Oxycontin, I’m very sorry to hear you have cancer, I pray you can beat it!!! My pain was & still is caused by two back operations, that left me with 6in of metal on each side of my spine & 6 metal screws, before I found Kratom I had very!! Bad pain for 16 years!!

I am sorry about your back pain. Pain from any source is dibilatating. it can wear a person down. I am glad you found relief. I am going to check into Kratom

Please Google it online, & Please research all strains carefully, they all do something different. God Bless, & keep up the Fight, you sound like a Strong Lady!!

Good evening. I to have suffered with chronic pain. Not sure if any of you have discovered PGX (pharmacogenetics testing) testing but I wanted to share a bit with you. It’s basically a genetic test that you take once in your life. The test tells your doctors your genetic make up which in turn tells them which medications will work best for you, at the what dose, and what time and day to take it. Here is a couple links that I hope will help.

The testing helps eliminate the trial and air. Of finding the right medications for patients.

What is Kraton? Thanks!

Kratom, is a tree that grows in different country’s in South East Asia. The leaves are chewed, or ground, to make tea, or into a powder to be put into liquids, or capsules! I hope that helps, if not let me know & I’ll explain further!

Not familiar with kratom. Using turmeric. May help. Other main alternative treatment is deep tissue massage. Has helped with torn rotator cuff. Or maybe just time. Who knows. Will try anything. Thanks.

Heard of using tumeric, but heard, too much can be hurtful!! If it works for you, Great!! If not try Kratom, let me know!!!
