THC versus CBD

THC versus CBD

So i've been trying medical cannabis for a year now, more on the high CBD side with no relief unfortunately, great for anxiety though so still great. My question is, has anyone found more pain releif with THC if CBD didnt work? I am reluctant to try (more because of its stigma, husband is still uneasy just with the high CBD strain) but at the same time I really need something to get me through till my epideral steroid injection.

How much did you the circle of hope on a cure get disapointed and after that acceptance and their is hope again !

I can lean more over acceptance then in the first years and i am faster over the dissapointment.I hope i find rest some day because it seems like a vicious circle .

I'm undergoing a new pain regimen and have a letter explaining it, but it's too long for update. How/where can I post it so many can see it?

I'm undergoing a new pain regimen and have a letter explaining it, but it's too long for update. How/where can I post it so many can see it?

I have some very interesting news regarding a new pain management regimen my Doc is trying on me, however, when I tried to post
a letter explaining it my story was too long.

I believe many of you will find it exciting. How/where can I post it on this site?

I am just not experienced at posting info on this site.

this is regarding hip replacement, I have been seeing many advertisements on stem cell surgery, I diagnosed with arthritis.

this is regarding hip replacement, I have been seeing many advertisements on stem cell surgery, I diagnosed with arthritis.

I was wondering if anyone has had this procedure? I am unable to have hip replacement due to medical conditions. My pain started like my hip was going out of place like a cramped muscle, really no pain to the bone at all. I thought it was a nerve problem, it would come and go. Then I noticed when my bladder got filled I was having pain in the groin, but after relieving myself it went away. Now… read more

How to support your partners while they support you?

How to support your partners while they support you?

I can’t get out with my fiancé and so many things or enjoy moments as much as we used to because of the pain and I can tell it’s taking a toll on him. He just wants to see me happy and admitted how much it hurts him when he sees me hurting. He’s been so wonderful to me in this, but I know everyone has a breaking point of how much they can handle and I want to take some of the burden off of him. He always carries me when I can’t carry myself and I can tell he’s… read more

How do you exercise and stay in shape with chronic illness?

How do you exercise and stay in shape with chronic illness?

I really want and need to get in shape but I am so scared I will just end up hurting worse than I started or vomiting all over the gym. I’m just tired of my only exercise being a walk to the mailbox. Even then I’m tired but I want more. Does regular exercise help with pain management, even if it makes you tired?

Dental Impants

Dental Impants

Thanks to a friend, I'm considering dental impants. Due to genetics (thanks Dad-lol), I don't have the best teeth, especially in the back, where several have been pulled. Plus, for some of us, fibro, etc doesn't help our oral health either. I was wondering if anyone has had dental implants (not dentures or anything else) & if so, what was your experience. I've heard many success stories from healthy people & have heard a not so successful story from (I believe) an otherwise healthy… read more
