This article is a collection of real-life stories about how Kratom has helped people overcome chronic pain conditions including Fibromyalgia, Herniated Discs, Scoliosis, Nerve Pain, injuries, Arthritis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Endometriosis, and Cancer. Essentially, Kratom is a powerful opioid analgesic, and these stories prove that Kratom can relieve the pain from even the worst pain-causing diseases, while simultaneously Kratom is safe and has caused zero scientifically proven overdose deaths in history, making Kratom the perfect supplement for chronic pain.

These stories were submitted to the Kratom Federation‘s petition to keep Kratom legal, where thousands of Kratom stories are being amassed, and will be combined with all of the scientific information showing the safety and efficacy of Kratom, and then sent all across the government to keep Kratom legal.

Kratom Relieves Pain From Herniated Discs And Scoliosis

Kratom has improved my life more than any thing else I’ve tried. I have had severe depression since 11 y/o, and I also suffer from 2 herniated discs in my lower back and scoliosis in my mid back. Suffice it to say, life kind of sucks. But kratom helps in immeasurable ways. Nothing has the combination of effects kratom does. Mood and energy boost, and pain relief properties allow me to live a semi normal life. Banning kratom would be like pulling the rug out from under my mental health. And necessarily so, as kratom is extremely safe. The risk of a fatal overdose is slim to none. It would be physically improbable to consume enough kratom in a short enough time span to cause a fatality. This is evident by its death rate, which is officially 44. However those deaths involved other drugs that probably acted synergistically. All medications should be taken responsibly, from alcohol to kratom. A comparison between the two being polar opposites. Please don’t ban or put unnecessary restrictions on kratom, if you want to save lives and improve quality of life for tens of thousands of Americans. Thank you.

Kratom Relieves Nerve Pain

I was the unfortunate victim of a physician’s error and have to live the rest of my life in horrible pain. She burned the nerves in my mouth, that can’t be reversed. The medications given for nerve pain were not only ineffective, but they also created side effects that landed me in the ER twice. Pure poison in my body. Kratom was the only thing that brought the pain to a manageable place where I could continue on with my life. To take this away and throw us into pain clinics that treat us like we are addicts is not the answer. We are adults, this is our body and we should have the choice of what works and what harms. It’s plant medicine, something used for hundreds of years vs the chemical concoctions given that have been proven to cause early-onset dementia and other unpleasant long term issues.

Kratom Relieves The Chronic Pain From Injuries

Kratom saved my life. I have a body full of injuries from decades of abuse and from decades of iatrogenic injuries. I suffered in excruciating pain that could not be controlled for years before I discovered kratom in early 2014. I’ve been taking it ever since, with regular tolerance breaks, under the care of my GP, Neurologist, Neurosurgeon, and Internal Specialist. My organs have been in great shape since 2013. We’ve closely monitored them, getting function tests every 6 months, and I’m doing great. I was able to start working again for the first time in 8 years last April. Thanks to kratom, I’m able to work a fast paced food serving job, on hard floors, all day long with a totally destroyed spine from top to bottom. I got my life back thanks to this magnificent botanical. I’m a functional member of society. I never stood a chance before I found kratom. In fact, the week I decided to try it (after I looked into it for a year) I was going to go bed my therapist to commit me. I took my dose and walked into her office a totally different person. She told me she didn’t recognize me at first because I was standing up straight, interacting with people, and this was the first time in the 2 years she’d been seeing me that she saw me smile and heard me laugh. She never knew the real me before kratom. I love making people laugh. But that’s not something I was able to do living in pain that makes complicated child birth feel like a walk in the park, for years.

Kratom Relieves The Pain From Rheumatoid Arthritis

Kratom saved my life in more than one way. After many surgeries and having rheumatoid arthritis , I have almost NO PAIN. I have NO side effects. I get many benefits from kratom, I get energy, pain relief, help sleeping, rls help, focus at my job, calms me down if nervous and can make me very happy if I’m down. It would be devastating to so many people if it was banned, people would die and also turn to drugs. So I ask for regulation, and to keep this amazing plant legal and overturn any bans that are now enforced..It should be completely legal at a certain age and If it stays legal and becomes legal in some parts you will see BAD drug use go way down over time.

Kratom Relieves The Pain From Spinal Injuries

I’m 46 years old and Kratom saved my life. Over 15 years I’ve had 18 spinal fusions, injections, multiple rhizotomys and a electric stimulator. I was taking approximately 9 Percocets, 3 to 4 oxyContin and 4 Soma every day, I was a mess and didn’t want to live anymore because there was no hope in sight and being in that much pain is no way of life. My poor wife was living with an angry drugged out zombi. Two years ago I heard about Kratom, like all the other healing methods I’ve heard over the years I was willing to try anything but expected little result. Kratom was the first day of sunshine that had come my way in a long time. My life was saved. Overnight I stopped All the pain killers…Never took them again. From going to the doctor and getting the golden ticket once a month “ prescriptions” I don’t see him at all anymore. I started going to the gym again and lost 30lbs, I care about life and my appearance, my wife finally got her husband back again after all those rough years. Kratom is my life blood and without it I would go right back into the darkness… people at work thought I found the fountain of youth and are still amazed at my transformation, thanks to Kratom I’m a citizen of the world again and teammate with my wife. Kratom is life… until you have chronic pain that drops you to your knees you simply will never understand so please don’t take it away from me and others like me because we deserve and have the right to have the ability to live our life as well.

Kratom Relieves The Pain From Degenerative Disc Disease And Scoliosis

I am a severe chronic pain patient, who has been in pain, since I was 13 and I’m now just a month away from turning 36. I had to have a scoliosis fusion at 13, then due to it not fusing properly, the Lexington Shriners had to extend it, so I am fused from T1-L3. What little is left unfused has developed degenerative disc disease and causes me a lot of pain all day, every day, plus because of my scoliosis causing me to be unbalanced, I have problems with my hips and legs. I had a pain management dr, but was released from their clinic, when I received WV Medicaid (the office was in VA). Eventually I was able to receive a much lower dose of a different pain medication from my previous primary care physician, but thanks to the WV Opioid Reduction Act (SB 273 from 2018), even that was taken away. Thanks to a fellow pain sufferer in a Facebook group of all places, I was told about kratom. I owe that woman my life. For the first time in over 20+ years, I am finally in control of my pain and not the other way around. For the first time in my life, I actually feel like a semi-normal person (I have had other health problems, since birth), who gets to be a productive member of society. Thanks to kratom I am now able to have a fulltime job and not have to deal with the negative side effects (like problems breathing with my one lung) my previous pain medications were causing. When I was on pain medication, I couldn’t even make it until the time for my next dose without getting horribly sick and miserable, but now I don’t start to get sick as soon as the kratom starts to wear off, instead my pain starts coming back and I know I need to take another dose. Please I am begging you from the bottom of my heart to keep kratom available for all of us who suffer with chronic pain.

Kratom Relieves The Pain From Cancer Related Injuries

Kratom has, quite literally, been a lifesver for me, a two-time disabled cancer survivor. I have been using it for 6 years now, never needing to increase a dose, and it addresses my pain in safe and efficient ways. The idea that this life-saving plant might be rendered inaccessible to us, who use it responsibly and count on it as not to ingest dangerous narcotics (the only other thing that relieved my pain), is unacceptable. All work toward ends to render this plant legal and accessible are appreciated.

Kratom Relieves The Pain From Degenerative Arthritis

I am 64 years old. I have terrible pain from degenerating arthritis. My joints are being destroyed. I have been taking kratom for 5 years. I can still contribute to this world. Without kratom, I will die. I use to use alcohol. You can imagine what that did to me. Doctors won’t prescribe pain meds. I meditate and take my kratom. It does NOT make me high or mess up my coordination as other things do. Please, please do not take it away or I will die.
