Hoping someone can lead me in the right direction. Have had severe back injury for years. Had nerve blocks done which worked, but not anymore. Also have 20 year progression of arthritis, but unable to be treated with normal meds (steroids or NSAIDs) due to a bleeding condition. I can only take Hydrocodone. So, I take 4 a day. I have been diagnosed with depression for the past year, taking lexapro for that. Some anxiety, have had insomnia for about 10 years, take a sleeping pill for that. But they just don't work anymore. I don't sleep much. I have migraines. I went from an extremely active person two years ago, good job, ran almost daily to today, no ambition, gained 40 pounds, hate what I look like but no energy to change it. Can anyone tell me what to try for the pain, the weight, the everything! I don't want to look like a walking pharmacy. I don't feel like anti depressants are working. Sorry it's long, just wanted to give the info to get the best response. Thanks

Welcome Fairy05 to the ILK Forum. Glad to have you here. I am sorry to hear about all your problems that you've been dealing with. For the Depression I've heard that Kanna is very good for that. Kratom is very good for all those Problems. I would start out with Green Malay because it has a unique alkaloid profile that gives you the full effects of Kratom. You will just have to adjust your dosage to get different effects. Then branch out from there. Order a sample pack from a trusted Vendor online & then you can see which Strains & Colors work best for each of your Problems. Good Luck.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can.

Sorry to hear about your struggling fairy05, but you've come to the right place. Most of your symptoms should easily be managed after you find which strains work best for you. The greens work great for me for energy and most people get pain relief from the reds. It's all about getting to know the correct amounts that work for you. There are many great vendors here that would work with you and send you some samples so you can get started. Good luck and welcome!
You get out what you put in....

Welcome to the forum :)
I understand where your coming from because i have had similar experience with pain from back injury and hydrocodone and I thought the pain meds weren't working anymore. Concerned about what this medication was doing to my body.. after 10 plus years i quit!
This is a great place for information and lots of good people willing to share their stories and findings. Keep researching and asking questions. The more i learn about kratom it seems the more questions I have.

Hi Fairy05 and welcome to the ILK forum. You'll find a lot of friendly and well-informed people on here.

Sorry to hear about all your health troubles. You might want to start with small amounts of Kratom from one of the vendors that are "approved vendors" on this site. Maybe buy a "sample pack" of several varieties of Kratom.

I can tell you that I use tiny amounts, usually of one of the red varieties, almost daily, for depression. Sometimes I take it along with my Lexapro and most of the time I don't need the Lexapro.

Best wishes-
Comfrey, my other favorite medicinal plant.

All great advice, keep researching, and find a few good vendors. As Lanie said, with kratom I always have questions, even after a few years of use. My two main vendors are Online Kratom, (capsules) and Pharmacy Dropout. I change my color veins often, and what may work today, may not work tomorrow, but it has helped me alot with my depression, social anxiety and motivation. I hardly use my prescriptions for my anxiety. Keep using this forum for advice and researching on the web. Good Luck, Golda55
