I am now off all my narcotics, not because I don't need them but because I hate pain clinics. I have resorted to using kratom for pain and it does pretty well. I have more energy in the daytime and less pain. By night, though, I am hurting, I am tired and I feel pretty badly. Every night I take an extremely hot bath. It seems to stop the muscle spasms, but I have to be careful as I get really dizzy, probably because I have low blood pressure to begin with. Does anyone else do this?
Also, my fusion is from L2 down, and though I get sharp pains where they had to replace my vertebra L4 and 5, I have more pain above my fusion. Maybe it's my posture? Any replies will be appreciated.
Before you try any supplement, herb, over the counter item, exercise program, mechanical aid, brace, etc always consult with your doctor to make sure you get their approval.
Some of these products may be very effective, but no two individuals or medical conditions are alike. What works for one, may cause trouble for another..
