Dear Friends: I've been battling chronic upper and lower back pain, head/facial pain, and fibromylagia for 5 years and I've explored the whole gambit of treatment options from narcotics to physical therapy to meditation, and everything-in-between. Vicodin worked, but we all know that docs are reluctant to prescribe because of all the associated dangers. So I get it, that's a no-go. Given its a no-go & nothing else helped reduce my pain to a functionable level. I'm out of options & I'm flat-out deseperate & got a medical MJ card. I've heard a lot of good things when it comes to its uses for pain management. With an informed mind as to the pro's and con's I tried MJ today [specifics below]. I am so heartbroken to share that I found no reduction in pain at all. I felt not much of anything truth be told.
My brain knows it takes some experimenting to figure out what works best for each patient. Even still I find myself gripped by fear that not even MJ will work for me. I guess I am looking for some support & reassurance around this idea.
I'm also looking for some ideas [don't worry i'll discuss suggestions with doc, etc.] for what kind(s) of strains or whatever to try.
Based on the kind recommendation of the doc & dispensary staff, I tried 3 CBD Caps 25 mg spaced throughout the day along with 2 droppers full of high THC tincture. My pain was at a 7-8 before medications and it has remained stuck there.
Would be so so grateful for your help.
I guess if you told people you were a lone parent, with no family (my mum, two brother dead....dad dying of cancer....his wife also dying of cancer) who had managed her own business and moved to a new country, you might think it was tough for her....but then know that that lone lady's ex partner sexually abused their daughter, and got a fricking way with it in court.....and no-body supported her...
I have been diagnosed with Fybromiaga/chronic fatigue. I have severe scoliosis and epilepsy. I am always in pain and I have no faith in conventional medicine to help me. I have no choice but to keep moving, keep trying and I have some good days for sure.My question to you all is this- why do you think so many people are suffering from pain today? Environmental issues? Stress? Lives style?...
