Does Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) work alone?

Does Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) work alone? I've been on LDN for MS for over 12 years with great success, but I'm now developing arthritis in my hands and I still get a lot of pain. 

LDN works great for some things and it can help reduce the impact of other conditions like arthritis or arthritis pain, but it's not working in isolation. So my advice for Chris is to go and see a rheumatologist, tell him you are taking LDN for MS, and look at getting other therapies for that because there are a great number of things that are either in existence now that weren't a few years ago, or are coming soon, which can potentially help when LDN isn't doing the full job.
