Kratom and Fibromyalgia Does it really work?

Kratom for Fibromyalgia Symptoms

First off What is Kratom? It is a powder made from the leaves of the Mitragyna speciosa, which is part of the coffee family and is found in Southeast Asia. These leaves include many beneficial alkaloids, and the best results are attributed to mature leaves that have been harvested from their natural growing locations.People in southern Thailand have reportedly used kratom for thousands of years. Chewing the leaves is said to make people more energized, and Thailand residents have also utilized kratom to enhance their mood and relieve pain. There have been some medicinal purposes for kratom in Thailand, including treatment for opiate withdrawal.

Kratom is Legal…well that depends on where you live. 4 states in the USA have banned the use of it and the status is always changing. It is always a good idea to make sure it is legal in your state before buying it.

Which Kratom is Best for Fibromyalgia?

There are multiple strains of kratom. Those that have used it report that you will want to pay close attention to the strain that you purchase. According to an online vendor of the herb, there are three main kratom categories: white vein, green vein and red vein. White vein is reported to be a stimulant, red vein strain is touted as a muscle relaxant and green vein is used for an energy boost and to manage pain. Some users claim that stacking multiple strains end in the analgesic effect aforementioned, and that the green and red strains used together make for a viable mixture for fibromyalgia patients.

Ultimately, the decision about whether or not try kratom is a personal one. However, many people with fibromyalgia are not satisfied with the approved medication that is currently available. This makes alternative options such as kratom very attractive, especially when user accounts and medical studies showcase the supplement’s ability to reduce pain, increase energy and relax sore muscles.

My personal kratom account for my fibromialgia

Maybe i should say in short awesome!  I have been able to get off all my pain meds and just use kratom. For energy in the mornings i use a white viened and green viened strain, if i am in lots of pain  (esp for you on here that do not know what fibro feels like) There are many physical and mental difficulties associated with fibromyalgia, including headaches, insomnia, morning stiffness, memory and thinking problems, numbness in feet and hands and painful menstrual periods (you have the flu from hell!! )thats what it feels like crippling pain at times. With that said i use a red viened  strain. Im lucky to live in a state where it is still legal.

I want to hear from you, has it worked for you? , what are your thoughts on the matter?
