Ok long story short cis 4 month ago body still knackered managing pain and fatigue all day so…
Wasnt into the idea of taking particularly pain relief meds such as amatrypline gaabapentine etc
for personal reasons I don’t like taking meds for the long run as worried, what they would do to our already weak bodies! Thats one factor.
The other is dependence getting hooked on these things because been taking for long time body get dependant on them.
Then they’re is internal problems liver kidneys etc.
i don’t smoke rarely drink like to keep active n stay healthy as possible and I really don’t like the idea of getting addicted to anything.
I am really just trying to gauge what folk do to manage pain?
i did try amatyrpline but made me feel awfull for days so scrapped them now on gabapentin 1 per day but doc says get it to 3 per day lol.
hows that good advice? just keep taking more! I do dabble in cbd oil which is fairly good but is expensive to keep up being more herbal I’d rather just take that but not enough on its own, unless the lovely nhs want to pay lol.
I am worried about the long term side effects of being on these pills so would just to hear others opinions. Like I say 4 month from a cis and I’m still in a state so I have gave in now and started small doses.
so what yous all doing? Any granny meds? eat a carrot on a full moon or something lol joking aside I bet they’re is a wee granny trick out there.
Hope that was clear as mud lol
any advice welcome still learning as I go here.
Thanks for reading and take care.
