kratom crazy

I am 45 and I have suffered with migraine headaches since I was 36. I have seen many specialists and have had numerous MRI’s to no avail. I am was in job in which 12 hrs has to be covered. However, with the sick days (there aren’t any allowed) accruing I had to change professions. It was at this time I promised myself that at 40 I would find help, if only to manage the pain. An accident busting up my L2, L4 & T6 left me with a 2″ splinter & bone spurs logged in between my discs. Three years later I was up to three, 10 mg Norco and 3 muscle relaxers a day. However, my system wanted even more in order to successfully relieve the pain and I started running out. Quickly realizing I was “hooked” on prescription meds, my life was on the bottom of a spiral. I was immobilized, three sleepless night in a row and nauseously aching/shaking all over as I researched for immediate help and legally ordered my first Kratom. I was normalized two hours later with a clear head/thinking and at a pain-free level that I had not had in years! Within three days I was past the narcotic withdrawal symptoms from the Norco and able to accomplish daily tasks.

    AngelaMackenzie,
    Thank you for sharing your story! I, too, use kratom and it has been very helpful in minimizing opioid usage. Here are two stories from other community members who have used kratom.
    Best Wishes!
