Does anyone use Naltrexone, what is it prescribed for? does it help?
I’m curious to know has anyone tried this treatment and if so, how have they found it for treating chronic pain.
I know every one is different, but I’m trying to find out what ever I can about it and if people have had positive or negative results with it.
Thank you all xxx
Does anyone have experience with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) or Low Dose Dextromethorphan for Fibromyalgia?
I recently came across a book on my shelf, from 2016, on LDN. I cannot remember reading it but probably did if it is on the shelf. I would have brought it up with my PCP back then and he probably dismissed it.
I have also seen several YouTube videos on the topic but not very recent.
What do you do if you are allergic to steroids? The last time I had a steroid shot, I turned all red and got very itchy. I tried to take prednisone and it made it worse. Since then, I cannot take any steroids at all. Some of my doctors can't believe I'm allergic, but I get this reaction every time I try to use them. I even had a reaction to an asthma inhaler that had a steroid in it. HELP??? What do I do for my back pain, my bursitis, etc.

My back is worse at night which makes my already bad sleep pattern worse. I am wondering if anyone can suggest an extra pain-killer that i can take just at night-time?
I have tried Tramadol and i does nothing.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
So I had my appointment with the pain clinic yesterday and after going through all the questions on the form and talking with the doctor, he told me I deal with central sensitization and unfortunately there's nothing that will help me. Injections into the various areas where I deal with pain would only enhance the pain that I am already in which is not what he wants me to feel. So here's my question then? Anyone else deal with this type of pain and what do you do when all medications, short of… read more
I have been having a rough weekend with my pain and my depression/anxiety and more so, far of what is to come, after recently finding out I’m being forced off of my pain medication. My health insurance is stating that they are tapering me down due to the obvious opioid crisis going on in the world which I completely understand, but to leave me with so many questions, no choice in this decision, no non-opioid medications or alternative treatment options being considered or offered, no plan if… read more
