Katie from the US has been taking Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for Fibromyalgia for two years. In this interview, Katie talks about how her doctor measures her progress with blood work every three to six months looking at the inflammation markers, which have been consistently decreasing.
Katie suffered from fatigue to such a degree that she had to stop working and her days were pretty grim. Katie says that Low Dose Naltrexone is worth trying primarily because there are no side effects. Katie says “I think for other people who have fibromyalgia, there can be chemical sensitivities or sensitivities to medications. It's really nice to take a medication [LDN] that has very minimal side effects”. Katie was unable to return to work but, as she says, she’s not suffering any more and that’s enabled her to do all the social things that she was missing previously. Katie says she feels she now has her life back.
