Eva, I so wish I had a magic wand for you. I hate to read how poorly you are and the daily challenges your family put before you. Sadly we can do little to influence family or their thoughts and actions. Thinking of you and wishing you some answers soon

[QUOTE=Diandra;1176201]Hi All,
I was just authorized by my pain doc to receive medical marijuana.

I asked him how it will be supplied, a pill or what. He said he just gives the authorization and I have to go to the dispensary and discuss with the pharmacist and he/she will suggest the best method. Pain doc also said it come in two kinds. THC and CBD, and I should make sure I get the CBD as it is more effective for chronic pain. I have no idea what that means but I am just about to research it.

I was wondering, for those of you who use medical MJ, how was it supplied to you(pill, vapor, edible, etc) and did you find it effective for pain or neuropathy.

Hi Diandra i was just reading your post from Oct. I was wondering have you gotten any response yet and have you tried the MJ yet? and if so, did you try the CBD and did it make you feel high? and did it help your pain?
what type of pain do you suffer from? I suffer from small fiber neuropathy, I am in NY, they legalized it here and i am hoping to find this to help me with my pain. thanks

My pain is so great right now and in the last six weeks a flare up
my upper right back
I have been without a shirt or anything for that matter
My lower back just not worth talking about
But the pain is so great I just want to die
There is another seven minutes before I start my med intake
I have been on the same time upon intake
I feel once I begin messing with my clock my body has become used to regimen
I do not like having to take any
The withdrawal alone is freighting in itself
I am under medicated only because I fear becoming a zombie
It makes me so bloody angry
I just want to die
Just knowing my nerves are not calm
They are just burning this body up without fire
My waist just cut me in half
My hands feet just cut them off they do not work upon command
I drop everything
My neck and base of my skull
Someone please just bite it out
Just as a animal who hasn't eaten in weeks
Rip it out please
Just rip it out
MM has allowed me some respite
I cannot imagine not having it if need be
And I need be
Being a recovering alcoholic for twenty four years now
just drives me nuts
Alcohol the culprit for many
And there are many who do not loose their privileges to a few drinks
To have to know take opioids to give me some relief for my mechanical problems my spasms the small nerves like biting ants all on my back feet hands
Taking my meds is a huge mental battle
I have no choice in the matter
And to think I WILL go through severe withdrawals if I did not have them
And yet "I" know there sits a bottle on the shelf
Just three shots just three
And that numbing feeling just comes over you

Twenty four years for what
I am screaming in pain
Just kill me please
And yet I'm not ready to give up the fight yet
It is getting harder and harder
I have a couple of years left taking my tamoxifen
for having the breast cancer
That just hit me
I still can't believe I had my breasts taken off
to eradicate my disease
But why do I still feel like I am slowly dying
This is not how one should feel
Oh if I could explain the horrible feeling I have in my gut
It never fails me
I know something underlying is going on
I still have no explanation as to why the veins in my hands and feet swell burst and cause bruising
Go figure
No blood runs to the tips of my fingers
Or the tips of my toes
Only my maker knows my pain
And I am scared
Me
I am so sorry for your pain. I know how horrible burning pain can be. I suffer with "Idiopathic" small fiber neuropathy. Mine has progressed to all over my body. Buzzing, tingling, stabbing, burning all over. I developed a horrible tinnitus. I wish I could give you a big hug. What do you take for your burning pain?
Please stay strong. ((Hugs))

Default SFN Pain & Cannabis

[QUOTE=Diandra;1185955]Hi Dave,
You hit the nail on the head !
Unfortunately, it does seem to have the munchies side effect. My husband reminded me I woke up from my hibernation-like slumber after my first "hit" and immediately asked for a brownie heated in the microwave with ice cream(something I RARELY eat but it was in the house for company). He thought that was hilarious that within seconds of waking up, that was what I asked for....he asked me if I needed anything and he meant like a glass of water!

Thankfully, I DID make extra food.

Hope everyone had a nice Tday.

Hi Diandra i was just reading your post from Oct. I was wondering have you gotten any response yet and have you tried the MJ yet? and if so, did you try the CBD and did it make you feel high? and did it help your pain?
what type of pain do you suffer from? I suffer from small fiber neuropathy, I am in NY, they legalized it here and I am hoping to find this to help me with my pain and burning skin and feet . thanks

Hello dear friend
Pain kills this person
And many here
My story in short
My mechanical pain is being treated with opioids muscle relaxers
My neurological pain I do not take any medicine for
We have tried at least ten or more
Nothing is working finding me the right medicine that does not harm me as they do
And I am tired of the trial and error of it all
I have been coaxed so in it all failed to find anything that worked
Hence the invisible pain
That you talk about
The burn that kills like someone took a piping hot iron to my body and nothing to take for it to make it stop
Smoking helps on several levels
And that is my experience
You take good care
Me

Default MMJ law passed in PA

Don't know if you guys heard, but they finally passed the MMJ law in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, estimates are that it will be 18 months to two years until the dispensaries are up and running, but at least it's a start.

There is CBD oil that is supposed to be 100% THC free, it is made from hemp. It is legal in all 50 states from what I have learned. I am considering discussing it with my PCP, neuro, and rheumy. I really feel I need some kind of relief. I do not take anything stronger than Tramadol, it is my preference. I do not wish to be getting addicted to any meds and there may come a time that a stronger med will be needed. Percocet is like taking candy, Demerol is one I am allergic to so that closes the narcs that work for me. I also saw that the FDA will make a decision (during the first half of 2016) about making marijuana medically available (class ll-lV) instead of keeping it listed as a class l, highly addictive and not medically useful. There may be some hope in the future after all.

Default Just waiting

It is a sad place
for some to live for someone who needs it
in their infant lives suffering seizures
My child an epileptic
It for array of helpful uses how it kicks nausea
and helps circulation and on and on glaucoma
and on

Now for some reason I am loosing weight again
for no known reason
It is not a good sign
Have a doctors appointment with pulmonary specialist
who can also be used as a general practitioner
This I need on my train
Point
Something brewing
This is a good thing in my opinion
A GOOD THING

I have been on CBD and all it,does is make me sleepy. AFter 23 years on men's. I tried mm and the vapor helps my pain to the point I can start decreasing my pain mess. My gold is pain relief and no opioids. Hope I can do it. WIll let you know But if you are new to this like me start low and increase as needed. I take 10 mg of THC twice a day and it really helps, relaxes my muscles and decreases my symptoms which you all know about. Jazzelise
