It has been 2 weeks now of Low Dose Naltrexone. Looks like my body is starting to adjust to the med. I am starting to sleep better as I am not as tired. I still feel like I am up half the night but I think I am in some weird dream state. As long as I can get through the day without thinking I need sleep, then I am ok. The headaches are also going away. YEAH!!
The big thing I am noticing now, and this could be from going off Humira, is that a lot of my body pains are back. It is mainly muscle pains. My biggest pain though is in my feet. They seem achy when I am in shoes and at work, the shoes can’t come off 😦 I use the orthopedic insoles and I just got new ones. Let’s see if they help. Also, got a massage today so let’s see if that helps the body pains.
So far, after 2 weeks, life has been good. Still no change in my Crohn’s but since I wasn’t that bad, I might not see a difference. I won’t know until February when I go for a colonoscopy just how well it is working.
Well, that is all for now. Not much new to write. Just wanted to update everyone on my journey.
Glad to hear that your system is starting to regain some sort of equilibrium. Will keep everything crossed that things continue to improve and props again for having the nads to think outside the box and go down the LDN route. Sir – I salute you 🙂
Thanks for updating us! I hope your pains start to improve soon.
