hey ren!

glad you found us, and above all kratom! im glad you found some relief. kratom helps me feel normal if that makes sense. and way less side effects with so many benefits! feel free to ask questions. many of us take other herbals to limit kratom dosing and promote pain relief and healing. i got a new young blood at work a few akuamma caps for relief. he said WHAT? and i said trust me.. if it works ill bring you some lol..

Cool you got sent over here! What a difference, huh? I like all forums, but this is my “home page”! Best peeps are here!
Wishing I could tag peeps by username to make sure everyone sees important posts. Probably best to not have that option. I’m anxious to blab information about another member, but it’s not my place to blab. She has dibs on her own story. Hopefully she will be well enough to tell everyone here in the best forum ever, soon.

Love the post name on your intro, REN! Welcome to the forum. I’m also confused as to why medical experts are more akin to let needless pain go untreated. Pharmaceutical sales are winning over the oath to NOT HARM patients and by neglecting pain, that is HARM, I think. I’m SO GLAD you found relief from senseless suffering. What a brutal world...except for legal accessibility to safe kratom! Thank you to all of the vendors for going to all the trouble to help others to enjoy choices! Freedom to choose hardly exists besides this miracle !

Hello, everyone! I've been dealing with debilitating pain and exhaustion (+++) 24/7 for over 5 years now. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2015. In August 2015 I got suddenly ill and was never able to get back to work normally. I tried all sorts of treatments for over a year with no success. The major medical center I was being treated by is anti-opiates for chronic pain. Once it was determined my pain was chronic they didn't renew any pain meds including Tramadol. A friend who takes Kratom suggested it after he realized how much I was suffering. I was wary at first but also desperate for pain relief. Thankfully my friend educated me on getting Kratom from a responsible vendor which tests all their Kratom. The more I've researched the science behind Kratom the more comfortable I've become.

I was so relieved that Kratom reduced my pain. My "normal" for pain averages at around 7.5. With Kratom my pain is reduced by about half. It also reduces anxiety, gives me energy during the day, and helps me sleep at night. At first I would just use Kratom on my worst days or when I had an appointment. Eventually I started taking it every day as I realized there was no sense in me suffering so much. Now I take about 1 tsp (2 gram) doses of mostly white Kratom every 5+ hours during the day after the pain comes back more strongly. I sometimes switch to green at night or do mixes depending how I'm feeling. Right before going to sleep I'll switch to 2 tsp (approx 4 grams) of a fermented red Kratom for pain relief, relaxation, and slight sedation. If I wake up at night I'll take another 2 tsp dose of red. Too often I wake up when the Kratom wears off and my pain increases.

Out of anything I've tried Kratom has had the greatest positive impact to my quality of life since I've been disabled. I honestly don't know what I would do without it. It is so difficult to deal with unrelenting pain with no relief. There are so many things I wouldn't have been able to do without the pain relief and energy from Kratom. I'm so grateful that it is an herbal supplement that I can purchase and take as needed. One that is safer, less addictive, and with less side effects than many pain pills out there. I don't have to jump through all the horrible hoops that many chronic pain patients due to just get some relief.

I am a firm supporter of Kratom being accessible to all adults. Thank you to anyone who financially supports lobby efforts to keep Kratom accessible, who supports the rights of people to take Kratom, fights misinformation, and talks about Kratom responsibly.

I posted a question on another forum and was invited here. I hope to learn and share information from others, especially other pain warriors.
