Default CBD and MG/LEMS

Hello!
I hope everyone has been doing ok, I haven't been around much as my condition seemed to be fairly well controlled until August.. and since then, it's flare after flare (from my rheumatological issues and my neuromuscular Sx).

Anyhow, after reading quite a few studies (I know there is MUCH more research needed with larger groups of pts etc), I am considering trying CBD oil. Has anyone here tried it? If so, what was your experience/any improvement?

I need help with everything from my gut, muscles, joints etc etc!


Thank you in advance!

I've been taking CBD oil capsules for little over a year, prescribed by my holistic practitioner for digestion issues and my hashimoto thyroid condition. I've experienced some major improvement, i.e., no more nighttime leg cramps and full range of motion in my left shoulder where there was major arthritic limitation. I've been in MG remission for the past four years, I think, largely, because I've been in very good health most of my life (I'm 86 y/o now), and because I've taken 8 mg of manganese daily since its onset. Even tho at the onset, I experienced double vision, difficulty speaking and swallowing, the MG has been brought under
control. It's difficult for me to synopsize my health concerns ... I have a few. But, as to the question of CBD, it's been beneficial (see above).

I'm following this thread.

I've considered the same, even potentially THC/CBD therapy. I'm currently looking into alternative medicine such as IV Hubs where they can provide treatment for ailments, vitamin deficiencies, etc.
