Seeking info on medical marijuana for chronic pain & fibro

Hello everyone 👋. I have been battling fibro & chronic pain for 30 yrs. I’ve been diagnosed with MS from 1 doctor only to be told that I was misdiagnosed 😳. I’m currently on opioids for pain mgmt & would like to know more about medical marijuana. What strain have you used-indica, sativa or hybrid? Has it helped? How often do you have to smoke, vape or eat med marijuana? What is the best method of administration-smoking, tinctures or vapes? Have you had any side effects like paranoia, room spinning or out of body experiences while using med marijuana? #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis gia lgia #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #Fibromyalgia #MedicalCannabis

LVL - New UK Chronic Pain Study. Anyone heard of it?

I have seen a new post in the articles talking about using medicinal cannabis for chronic pain. It has been featured in quite a few news articles such as guardian, daily mail and etc. Was wondering if anyone has heard of it?

Would be helpful to gain an insight into this, as i am thinking of joining for my back pain.

Hey all.

I’ve had a fibro diagnosis for 11 years. It’s been tossed around that I have myofascial pain syndrome as well. Recently I’ve started PT for the millionth time and this time seems more hopeful to be honest. We’ve tried dry needling this time and it sent me into one of the worst flares in a while. I haven’t had normal range of motion in two weeks and it cracks every time I move it. Super tight muscles, huge hard as rock knots and headaches all day everyday. I have a theracane and use hot and cold. Literally nothing works. No relief what so ever. I’ve had trigger point injections multiple times as well. Does it ever get better? I’m a very motivated patient and will do anything to feel better. I’ve done meds, diets, PT, swimming, exercising, stretching, trigger point injections, cortisone shots. Literally everything I can think of. Am I doomed? I hate life. I have three children that are high needs. My husband can’t tough me without being in pain. I’m tired of pain medication. Eventually trying medical cannabis soon. Any input or advice appreciated. #MyofascialPainSyndrome #Fibromyaliga #triggerpoints #Lumbarfusion #CarAccident #MedicalCannabis #PainManagement

I only made it to the couch today and that’s ok.

Sometimes just leaving my bed to get to my couch is my task for the day. So I rolled a joint in celebration for my pain. #ChiariMalformation #ChronicPain #MedicalCannabis

Can we end the stigma already?

I have always heard people talking negatively about medical marijuana because they are ignorant and do not want to learn about its medical benefits. I have been and will always tell people that there are good things and I was told that I never discuss its side effects. So here it is I finally found it, side effects of medical marijuana: mdberry.com/risks-health-benefits-medical-marijuana

P.S: Please read it before posting any comments.

Which medical marijuana strain is your number 1 preference?

I would like to know which strains are considered best by medical marijuana consumers. I was recommended MMJ for my PTSD and my doctor gave me a list telling me that I can only smoke these strains: mdberry.com/marijuana-strains-considered-good-weed
I have been consuming White widow and Blue dream since the beginning of my MMJ journey. I would like to know what MMJ strains are other mental health survivors consuming?

In a bad place right now... (picture: because who doesn’t love a cat in her own stroller? Lol)❤️💕🐱🐶💪🥰🤗

I’m anxious. I’m leaving in an hour to go to the hospital for an urgent MRI on my brain. I’m having the MRI at 10:30pm. The symptoms I’m having, of course, are scary in itself and the fact I need to go now, but that’s actually not what is bothering me the most. Covid is pretty bad where I am right now. The hospitals are over run with Covid admissions and they are trying to make as much room as they can by sending patients to field hospitals and anywhere else that there’s room. I’m pretty much walking into a burning building as far as infection goes because the one I have to go to is one of the worst out breaks in my province. I can’t have anyone come with me for support so my husband will drop me off and wait the few hours in the car. If anyone has had a brain MRI, it’s more terrifying than most MRIs because you have to wear a cage-like contraption on your head/face while you’re already trapped in a tiny space for up to 60 minutes and you can’t move. I’m hoping I won’t have to wear a mask inside the machine as well. The last time I had one done 5 years ago, I was able to take an Ativan to calm (and it was still scary!). But this time, because of my symptoms and blood issues I can’t take anything. I’m have terrible coughing spasms (not Covid related) so I don’t know how I’m going to manage that when I’m not supposed even move. I think this is warranted anxiety, but obviously still unpleasant. My parents had to take my dog to look after her for me for a couple days, so I don’t have that important support. My cat is wonderful but she gives love on her terms only lol 🤷‍♀️ Any kind words or wishes would be appreciated ❤️💕💪 #Anxiety #BipolarDisorder #ADHD #PTSD #EatingDisorders #SensoryIssues #InflammatoryBowelDiseaseIBD #Allergies #SinusTachycardia #Hypertension #GastroesophagealRefluxDisease #ChronicPain #Nerve and joint pain #geneticblooddisorder #chroniccough #nausea #involuntarymovements #rashes #Fatigue #AutoimmuneDisease #DryMouth #Nightsweats #Endometriosis #kidneycysts #OvarianCyst #enlargedlymphnodes #Virus #Infection #CannabisCorner #MedicalCannabis #Isolation #Loneliness #nightterrors
