In a couple of months, I will have been on the Protocol for three years. And what a difference it has made in my life.
Before the Protocol:
Walking was very hard. Used a walker and a cane to get around. I was trying to figure out how I could quit work and survive financially. I went to Dr.s and found I had osteoarthritis in both knees and a bad heart. I knew I had to keep working for insurance to take care of my problems. Got knees replaced and had open heart surgery to replace a mitral valve. But that really didn’t solve the pins and knees pain in my legs. The heart Dr. said you have Peripheral Neuropathy, called idiopathic meant he didn’t want to find a cause. My internist started me down the road of a Lyrica connection. What a horrible experience that was all the side
effects they warn you about taking Lyrica happened to me.
Blurred vision, constipation, drowsiness, fatigue, weight gain, peripheral edema, abnormal gait, headache, confusion, edema, visual disturbance etc. etc.
I knew I had to figure this out because I wasn’t going to keep upping the dosage of the Lyrica for something that was causing more problems than helping me with the pain. And it wasn’t really helping me with the pain anymore. And I didn’t want to keep taking pain pills either.
Guess what I found Solutions to Peripheral Neuropathy Pain and Discomfort. Well I had been disappointed before on the Internet trying products etc. that were a waste of money. I almost didn’t stick around because they were talking about this solution called the Protocol. Well I started reading . And the more I read, I thought hey I want to give this a try.
I had been in so much pain for so long that after starting the Protocol and getting relief so quickly, I became a believer of the process.
I was able to work 2 more years at my job, and retire with full benefits, because I got rid of the cane and walker. Able to breath easier, mental attitude improved, and believe me that was huge because at work there was no air conditioning in the building, climbed 3 flights of stairs many times a day and worked mainly with 1st and 2nd grade children as a Paraprofessional educator.
Other benefits of the protocol:
I have 85% to 95% relief from my PN symptoms.
I got rid of over ten drugs and prescriptions for pain constipation, heartburn, high blood sugars because I was taking Lyrica, and urinary problems. And a benefit of that was I didn’t have to pay for those drugs anymore and not having to go to the store I didn’t spend extra money in the store waiting for prescriptions to be filled. It has really saved me a lot of money.
I have normal lab reports now.
My Dr. says keep doing what your doing. I think even they are Seeing my benefits in using the Protocol only they just see it as a bunch of vitamins and supplements that I am taking.
I am able to travel again.
Ride a trike bike, got most of my balance back.
Walk without a cane or walker.
I drive everywhere again because I not afraid of my tired eyes being a problem seeing.
I sleep better. I use to get maybe 2 hours a night now I get over 5 hours and it just keeps improving.
Definitely not constipated anymore.
I can wear my comfortable shoes again, nothing confining yet, but that’s ok I am all about comfort these days anyhow.
I think the best thing about being on the Protocol is I am not crying anymore because of the pain I felt, it is definitely a thing of the pass.
I am glad I decided to choose this journey to relieving my pain, I can only imagine how bad I would have been had I not found the Protocol, probably in a wheel chair. And I never want to go that route again.
