Anyone else been arrested at their local ER but wait , without having a history of any prescriptions?

I mean, the previous 15 years doctors handing out pain meds as if they were candy, creating a nice customer base. I because if my age decided to wait and now I cant even get a doctor to see me.

Has CBD oil or gummies helped anyone with severe pain? Anything over the counter helped?

Has CBD oil or gummies helped anyone with severe pain? Anything over the counter helped?

I keep seeing on the internet and keep hearing about CBD and how it helps relieve pain, or so they say. I would like to know if anyone has gotten relief from them. Also any other over the counter migraine or vitamin that may have helped someone. I really need to find something that works. Thank you.

Has anyone else decided to go with pain managment instead of pain killers?

Has anyone else decided to go with pain managment instead of pain killers?

At one point I was on 12 T3’s a day for the lower back pain from the collapsing discs; especially S1-L5. The next step was to go on Opiods (hope I spelled it right) anyway. I decided to go for a breast reduction and pain management instead. Anyone else?

Anyone know of a doctor that is a neurologist/painmanagment

Who else uses crafting as a distraction technique and what do you love to make ie papercraft, crochet etc

I use crafting as a pain relief as im distracting myself from my pain.
I prefer a physical craft rather than paper crafting at the moment anyway.
What do you love to make and post a photo if youd like to.
