1 day ago · Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy? in Neuropathy

@sjhedcon I use Kratom, and swear by it. I do not use it daily, as it can be addictive, so I use it only 2 or 3 times a week. My pain can be very severe, and Kratom takes it away. I'll say that is a good reason to use it. However, I respect it, and do not abuse it. I take the least possible amount for the desired result. It is one of the very few things that takes away nerve pain. I have STUDIED police reports about it, and unfortunately, it is foolish young adults that abuse it, and get sick, or die from it. It is a God send. It makes life bearable…..Lori R

@terrydclaar I do not take Kratom at a regular time. I take it when I hurt, whenever that time happens to be. The pills take effect in about 10 minutes or so, and last about 3 hours, maybe 4. Because I take 8 to 9 pills, it makes me sleepy, but what can I do. It beats pain by a long stretch. I take it from 1 to 3 times a day, and never take it two days in a row. Hope this helps! Lori

@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

@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.

@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

@meandyou I am so sorry. I have neuropathy and I do know what constant pain feels like. Can you get medical marijuana in your state? It does help distance or take away the pain….. Lori Renee

@jmb73 I have taken Gabapentin and CBD with THC many times, without any problem. Everyone is different, but they were fine together for me. I have gotten off Gabapentin because for me, it was not helping. Now I only use medical marijuana and CBD oil together. Much more helpful. Lori R.
