Have hope because you will get on the LDN even if itís not for another month. Remember also that when you start taking it it may take a few days to a couple weeks if not more to see benefits. I didnít notice anything until the 12th day. Others noticed certain things right away and some it took a couple of months. You will get through this. We all have to have hope or otherwise we have nothing and nothing is a pretty bad place to be.

    My prayers go out to you each day!! Hang in there, Opare!!

    Yes, the heat sensitivity is better but remember Iím in Florida so it is still hot as hell here, but the indoor temps always overwhelmed me but they are getting a bit better. I am hot on my face , ears and sometimes the lower part of the back of my head. The rest of my body is normal temp. At bedtime I put fan on my face and sleep with round ice packs on my pillow cloth side touching my ear, cheek and temple area. I now donít get up to switch it out during the night so that is better. My body gets chilly so I bundle up. During the colder months here, I leave my windows open and sometimes it will be 52 degrees Fahrenheit when I wake up. That is like heaven to me. Interestingly, I love the cold and wind. Wind doesnít bother me at all.

    There is still room for much more improvement on the LDN. I am back down to 2 mg. I will stay there. I am hopeful that it will get better and better as the months go on.

    Keep us posted.

    Hello Angela

    I am pleased to report things have settled down again since reducing to 2 mg, hope that you are finding the same.

    Judy, I too am noticing subtle positive changes going back down to 2 mg. Itís been about a week back at that dose and a total of about 45 days on LDN so I am hoping that I continue to improve like you and Fiona did. I am noticing that my nighttime reaction and swelling have definitely decreased.

    Have a wonderful day!!!

    Awww! Bless you! So delighted!

    Remember that I am almost 8 months into my LDN journey, slowly so slowly with this drug I think!

    You too!

    Just, would you say that you are back to your original gains from before? How much better percentage wise are you? Lastly, at what month on LDN did you feel the peak of where your improvements were probably going to remain?

    Thanks,
    Angela

    I am 'getting there' my nose sensitivity (tingling not redness) is often and indicator, and I still have that!

    Overall I would say 85% better with LDN!

    As for my peak, probably at about 3 months; will not be moving from 2 mg for a good while!!!

    Ive actually found a Dr. that according to a 5 year old thread is prescribing LDN in Zurich.
    Otherwise they talked about it from here https://www.buyldn.com/naltrexlow
    I'm not sure how the law is to order meds from abroad as they are located in Singapore
