Question: I am in such constant pain that I cannot function. I am a nurse and am on my feet for 9 hours straight with this pain. If I sit down to rest it’s worse because getting up is even more painful. Please help me feel better. I asked my doctor for a small amount of pain meds thinking it would break the pain cycle but it did not.
Larry’s Response: It seems you are in the throes of a systemic inflammatory situation – sometimes referred to as RSD or fibromyalgia. To reduce the inflammation takes effort, but the results are worth it.
First, eliminate all wheat – other grains too if possible. In itself, going wheat-free can help a lot.
Next, ask your doctor about prescribing low dose naltrexone – 3mg, for example. Taken at bedtime, many people who suffer chronic conditions find relief that lasts all day. We sell it to people who are suffering symptoms of MS, IBS, psoriasis, arthritis, and practically any condition associated with the immune system and inflammation.
Nobody is certain of how it works; just that it seems very effective for a large percentage of people with chronic conditions. Dr. Bernard Bhari observed the effectiveness of this drug – referred to as LDN – many years ago and once told me that he can’t think of any reason to not prescribe it to anyone suffering from chronic health situations. The dose is low and there are very few side effects or interactions – the most prominent interaction is with opioids (narcotics).
Of course, there are other things to consider, but these two should give you some of the relief you’re seeking.
I wisk you luck.
