I’ve had fibromyalgia for the past three years. During that time I’ve tried damn near every drug on the U.S. market with no success. None of them even touched the pain, the horrible sleep, the fatigue, the splitting headaches, the brain fog, or the weakness in the mornings. Well, except Cymbalta, but the horrible reaction it had with my Manic Depressive brain kind of outweighed the little good it did.
I was quite skeptical on whether or not this, Banjo, would work, but what did I have to lose, really? I started taking Banjo twice a day about seven weeks ago, and I’ve tried keeping a diary to note changes. I was in the middle of a bad back flare when I started taking Banjo, but almost right away within the first few days felt my pain lessen to where it wasn’t much. I also started having fewer headaches within the first four days. Which was a very nice change. I usually either wake up with a headache that doesn’t go away during the day, or get a headache a few hours after waking that lasts until I go back to bed. During the first week I didn’t notice any change in my sleep, fatigue and concentration, but not being in anywhere near as much pain was enough for me.
By about the third week I would say I started noticing a big improvement in my fatigue and concentration. The pain relief was rather dramatic, but these other symptoms went away gradually so it’s hard to connect them with a certain date. I was still having trouble with my sleep, but I was doing really, really well by the third week. I moved into a new apartment which involved a lot of heavy work. That was like a test for me and I was really surprised to find just how well Banjo can work during the move: I was hardly in any pain at the end of the day! And then by about at week five I started noticing a change in my sleeping, finally! Getting good sleep is AWESOME!!
I’ve been taking Banjo for nearly two full months now, and I have to say, I’m stunned that it’s still working. My metabolism for medication, homeopathic or chemical, is insane. Something works for a few weeks, then never works again, and it’s not because I abuse whatever I’ve been taking. But, Banjo still works for me, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the result. Thank you, kiitos, grazie, arigato, tack, marci!
