    Cannabis and low dose naltrexone is my duo. Lots of stretching and 30 minute walks. My doctors have talked about immune suppressants like Humira too, I've never tried it because I have other autoimmune diseases but I've heard they help a lot of people like us considering that its our immune system attacking ourselves, so the medicine should stop that from happening.

    I have a long list of medications and supplements I take. I just started the low dose naltrexone and taking some CBD oil too. I know that makes it hard to know if the naltrexone works. But at this point the pain is so intense in my lower back, hips, thigh and knees. I also take collagen, Turmeric and omega 3. All those were recommended by my pain management doctor. I don’t know if the dosages need to be different for those to work too.

      my doctor told me it takes 9 months to feel the full affect of LDN so don't give up on it. Good luck from there:)

    9 MONTHS??????? Holy Cow!!!! Not acceptable to me. I am in excruciating pain. It’s not helping. Nothing is working. I can’t live like this I just can’t deal with this kind of pain. I am not going to hurt myself but it’s difficult to live like this!!!
