Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

I am looking for alternative treatments for my AS. Will be on pure Medicare this next year and I’m very doubtful that I will be able to afford my humira. If you are using or have tried using either the full product or the cbd (without thc) I would love the feed back. Also if you know a source for good cbd, product descriptions are sketchy online. ( I can buy from 9 to 120 and they all read the same) thank you!

I often see that people take these meds but don't know what the names of them are so I can ask the doctors if they would help me sleep without so much pain. If you take them please can you give me the name of the medication you take and if it helps. Thank you. X

Arthritis Vs. Ankylosing Spondylitis

Arthritis Vs. Ankylosing Spondylitis

My friend had been diagnosed with severe arthritis in his lower back. He goes to a pain clinic where he receives two strong prescriptions (Norco & Tramadol) for the pain but they only give him little. I feel like he needs something for inflammation but he can’t take NSAIDS because they make him bleed terribly. How does his doctor know it’s not AS instead of arthritis? If it is AS, has anyone tried acupuncture? If so, has it helped. He is very depressed and I’m worried about his mental… read more

I Have Been Calling More Often Over The Last Few Months. I Avoid The ER Because I Tend To Be Treated Like An Drug Addict. Any One Tx So?

I Have Been Calling More Often Over The Last Few Months. I Avoid The ER Because I Tend To Be Treated Like An Drug Addict. Any One Tx So?

I have a spinal fusion, spinal cord stimulator, and I am in pain management program but they do not have urgent appoints and will not adjust meds between appointments so they tell be to go to the ER but the ER staff treat me like an addict. I currently have a hugh bruise going across my back and hip from a fall 2 days ago and am in terrible pain. Any one else running into these problems of caught in the middle between pain management and ER?

All of our stories are the same. We're in pain & MDS only care about their career.
The FDA does audits on MDS who write 'more than normal' scripts for pain. This makes them leary to write scripts.

HiHas Anyone Tried CBD? I Have Severe Neuropathy And Slot Of Patients Use It.

HiHas Anyone Tried CBD? I Have Severe Neuropathy And Slot Of Patients Use It.

Hi, I'm new to this group. I have severe neuropathy and I believe the Dr. said spondelosis (?), and herniated discs up and down my spine, worst in my neck and low back. All I know is screaming pain, burning, stabbing,etc. I'm in pain management, so I'm given pain killer and muscle relaxer. Since the pain is so unbearable, slot of neuropathy patients are using CBD. Just wondering if anyone has tried it?

What Relieves Pain?

What Relieves Pain?

I live in constant pain and have for years. I wake up in pain...everything causes pain. Exercise actually helps.

Ive tried everything from Gabapentin to acupuncture to opiods. All help some...but not that much.
