So I discovered Kratom About three months ago. I am 41 years old have had several surgeries. Both shoulders operated on lower back fusion L4 L5 S1. A few years ago my doctor had me on 120 mg per day of oxycodone 30 mg pills. I weined Down for only three weeks and then quit cold turkey. It was agony. But I got through it and have it touched any sense. The issue is I still have pretty severe pain in my lower back, elbows and shoulders. So I heard about crate hi down for only three weeks and then quit cold turkey. It was agony. But I got through it and haven’t touched any sense. The issue is I still have pretty severe pain in my lower back, elbows and shoulders. So I heard about kratom and begin to dabble with it. To my surprise it works very well. I don’t take you for a euphoric feeling or just to feel good I use it strictly for pain. And I have to say it’s tremendous how it’s changed my life. I don’t even take ibuprofen anymore. My concern is Is taking it for an extended period of time and having to go through that hell of withdrawals again. I can’t even describe the hell I went through. But being a strong individual I made it through it. But the older I get the more pain I continue to experience. I really do enjoy the feeling of being pain-free every day, but again scared to death of ever going through those kind of withdrawals. So starting tomorrow I am going to do a 60 day wein down process. I plan on continuing taking the Kratom. But not taking it quite as often. Trust me the hell you go through with opiate withdrawals is something 95% of people can’t endure. So do I wean off completely or continue to suffering through my every day pain? I played 15 years of football all the way through to college and have been working out for 30 years and it’s really taking its toll on my body. So my question is has anybody else been in this situation. I look forward to hearing your feedback.
