Tracey started to feel unwell around 1989 when she was only 26 years old. She had joint pains and swelling and was then diagnosed with fibromyalgia. She struggled on with various prescription medications until she was 40 and then she couldn’t work anymore. Other health issues had started to appear; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hashimoto’s, Depression, Essential Tremors and Anxiety and she was tested for Multiple Sclerosis which came back negative. Tremors started in her hands and the medications were harsh with side effects and she finally had to finish work as she was now disabled.
In 2015 Tracey heard about Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) from her support groups and eventually talked her rheumatologist into prescribing it. Tracey first noticed good things happening a week after starting Low Dose Naltrexone, she felt she had more energy, she didn’t need to sleep all the time. By week three the brain fog started lifting and she felt he could have a decent conversation again without forgetting what she was saying. She started to clean and organise the house, she no longer needed pain medication every day.
Low dose naltrexone gave Tracey her life back after years of suffering.
