Pain Meds Or Cannabis

Pain Meds Or Cannabis

Lumbar spondylitis with bulging discs is my condition, I'm prescribed norco 4x daily. My friend thinks I should just smoke cannabis for pain relief. It is not sufficient. But I cannot convince him. Therefore I'm a druggie in his eyes.

Anyone Had A Horrible Appointment With A Chronic Pain Doctor?

A little bit of background
I live in the UK and am blessed to have the NHS. The problem is that it is struggling and the area I live in has particularly bad waiting times (shortages of beds, doctors, nurses etc)
I was waiting for 22 months for an appointment with the chronic pain consultant.
I was excited and nervous. My GP had told me of various treatments which could be offered to me (tens unit, spinal epidural etc)
My appointment was on Monday and… read more
