Confused: test didn't detect neuropathy, but many symptoms

Hey everyone – I received my medical marijuana card in hopes that it would take care of my pain and reduce my need for hydrocodone. Unfortunately, it was not as great as I had hoped for. My pain level equated to extra strength THC and as I crept up the dosing chart to find relief, it made me completely unable to function. I don't get that from opiods therefore, opiods win out for me. Now this is not what any Dr or our government wants to hear but too bad, it's a fact for some. My Mom for example…41 year chronic pain suffer from a motorcycle accident and on opiods to live somewhat of a less dysfunctional life. There are legit reasons for people to need certain drugs because other drugs or techniques dont work.Whoever brought up the point earlier about diabetics needing insulin….great point. Sometimes, it is what it is.

@rwinney Hi Rachel! Even though the marijuana made it hard for you to function, you might want to try different strains of it. I absolutely know what you are talking about. The amount you need to not feel pain, makes you unable to function. I have that also, but am learning to pick and choose which kind and how much to take of that kind. I choose from chocolate, gummies, the plant itself, and a vape. The edible things give a very strong high, but if I am in excruciating pain, I take them, or Kratom. I am so happy you have a doctor that gives you the hydrocodone you need, especially if you find you really can't do the marijuana. Oddly, I am learning to live feeling a bit high. It beats PAIN!!!! However, down the line, I will probably do the Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulator trial. I do think it will come to that. Meanwhile, I have not had pain for almost 3 days, which has left me utterly perplexed. Tonite, I can feel mild pain again. What an illness. Just what an illness. Lori Renee
