Low back pain gotten much worse even with physical therapy. Doctor ordered an MRI and I was diagnosed with Stenosis of the lumbar spine causing severe pain in legs. Doctor recommended surgery. I am afraid of back surgery. Have heard all kinds of horror stories about pain becoming worse. My cardiologist said surgery is simply opening up the narrowed spine area to free the nerves that are being crushed by the stenosis. Otherwise it gets worse. Is it really that simple? Anyone… read more
Have taken turmeric but dont see any improvement. Also Chondotronin (probably spelled incorrecty) and no improvement either. My pain is primarily in knees and ankles going down stairs or even stepping off a curb. I got to take 1 step at a time. Going up stairs isn't as painful and I can walk up easier as long as I'm holding hand rail. Osteoarthritis in knees and ankles and feet have made me a very slow walker. I guess I walk slower so I won't fall .… read more
| am looking for any and all feedback on people that have either tried CBD oil or the patch (not sure what's it's called) that helps with fibromyalgia pain and diabetic neuropathy pain.

I would especially like feedback from people in BC, Canada as to where to get these products.
When I moved from the L. A. area near the ocean to Las Vegas, I noticed a dramatic decrease in joint pain (I was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis and DJD in 1982).

Doesn't it make sense though, because many people with chronic pain due to arthritis have moved here… read more

Does anyone have experience with withdrawal symptoms from a reduction in dosage of oxycodone - 15mg to 10 mg with 12 hour interval frequency? I have voluntarily requested this reduction because I feel I am becoming addicted and I am suffering in various ways over the last few days. Any suggestions or help out there please?
I have been using cbd oil for 6 months and I have been able to cut way down on my opiate meds. It is really helping with my fibro. However, not so much with my joint pain right now. May have to have hip replacement. Any way if any of you are using it I would like to know how you like it...
I was called on Monday being offered an appointment for Wednesday morning to have my impacted wisdom tooth removed. I requested to take Thursday off work and my boss wasn’t too happy with this due to the fact it was such short notice. I understand it totally for her point of view that she would be loosing money (i am a beauty therapist working in a salon and did have clients booked in). She basically asked if i could change the appointment for the… read more
