dianbm: I realize this is a few days late, but my friend has severe lower back pain due to an accident and surgery complications. Additionally she had one knee replacement and several surgeries in the other knee and had more complications that caused more problems that she'd care to count. The prescribed opiates
she despised because of the possibility of addiction
and the side effects
, so ended up using biofeedback and meditation to try to control pain until she discovered Kratom
Kratom, she uses Bali and then switches it up with Maeng Da and Red Vein, more often Maeng Da, has made life considerably easier. She does a lot of financial business consulting and being in continual pain was hurting - literally and figurative. Kratom is usually taken 1-2 times a week when the pain spikes beyond what she can deal with. Some weeks it might be 3 times.
She did go through a phase when she was taking A LOT of Kratom daily rather than working on her own pain management and just relying on the Kratom. This was not a great idea and she went cold turkey
and restarted Kratom a while later. Now she takes around 10g of Bali Kratom per dose and her life is more "normal" than ever before.
One thing that she had to discover was reputable vendors and the right strain and the right product - definitely check out the
And if you search, look for what's been discussed and reviewed. I would "think" (although I don't know any other Kratom users other than online) that people stick with one vendor once you find one with a consistent product. It may take a while to find the right dose and the right product, don't get discouraged. I think that it took my friend about 3-4 months to find the right vendor and then the right strain and then the right dose.
