mwatto,
No I have not but did look it up.  What do you have going on that you are looking to take?  Hope all is going well.

Hi there am going to combine it with PEA (palmitoylethanomide). Going to use 0.5mg LDN. I just feel keeping inflammation down will help prevent growth and also help with nerve pain (stabbing ear pain since Pfizer vax 6 months ago). MRI confirms the AN is stable.

Matto,
So glad to hear the AN is stable, but sorry to hear that you have the shooting pain. I get that every now and then, but always hope it is the dang thing dying and screaming for help. hahahaha.

please let us know how the anti-inflammation combo works.

Hi there! GBLY you made me laugh out loud!  I am actually feeling great and my nerve pain is  a lot better. Hearing and balance is ok. I am just thinking that maybe 0.25mg LDN be good for inflammation (which we know fuels AN growth) and in case I get pain again...or Covid. I am on the LDN forum and its amazing how its helping in auto immune, pain, neuropathy, systemic inflammation, neuro inflammation. So then I thought since its also used in the context of tumors why not maybe try it out...! I continue to use fucoidan, boswellia, bromelain, melatonin, sulphorapane, D3K2, low dose aspirin, ginger on and off too. In any event I am no longer in pain- so something is working!

That's wonderful to hear, Michele!!!
Burning Tongue, Loss of Hearing & Balance, and Tinnitus led to MRI. Very small AN found on 11/23/2021
While watching and waiting, lost significant hearing. WRS now at 12% (down from 100%). Was fitted with CROS system on 3/7/22.  Stable MRI on 7/29/22
No treatment yet.

Thanks GBLY I just started - and i feel its right for me I have lurked on that forum for a few months and done a lot of reading. Other things I like are fucoidan, sulforapane, boswellia, bromelain. All work on the same pathways and inflammation to hopefully prevent growth. In any event I feel its all helping.
