Has anyone used CBD oil or anything similar for use in relieving Neuropathy?

@gfisher100 Good morning. I have been using some version of topical ointment with CBD oil for several years. Some work better than others. The only type that is very messy is anything with coconut oil. I am experimenting right now with a 3:1 THC to CBD. It is working very well on hands, wrists, and arms. I also use it on my Myofascial knee problem. I was doubtful at first because of the high concentration of THC. My patient counselor said that it has been delivering good results. Any of the medical marijuana products work better than the lidocaine compounds, for me.

I have neuropathy in my feet and sometimes go as far as my ankles. My biggest is after back surgery I have extreme burning pain in my lower back( lower buttocks) It has brought me to tears at times I have not found any real relief for this. I would appreciate any ones information
Where can I purchase the stimulator?
A surgeon must implant it so your doctor has to give you a referral
Pain doctor puts 2 wires in your spine! Surgeon makes 2 inch incision on butt cheek Wires are pulled underneath skin to stimulator installed in the incision and stitched! Out patient procedure! I was scheduled for this one week before this virus hit! Now wait forever! My trial was successful
That is wonderful @wilcy. My mother in law was one of the first patients to have the procedure performed in Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. She could barely walk from the severe sciatic pain in both legs and was on strong pain medication. She had the procedure and after they turned the stimulator on, she could not believe the difference. They have now mentioned this to my husband. He has two bad knees and he is not a candidate for knee replacement due to multiple other health issues.

I understand it can work for knees
imagine it is the same as the Navro stimulator. It did not help me.
Sorry it didn’t work! The 3 day trial worked for me as soon as it was turned on! 80% effective! Now, getting permanent when virus is gone
@schony1087, It has been a while since I wrote the easier post about medical cannabis. As you might expect within an industry that is just "blossoming" with new products and better results. You have me wondering now…..what was the surgery for that has left you with intolerable pain? Was it a laminectomy and fusion? Was bone gathered from your hip to be used to shore up your vertebrae?
I have had two lumbar surgeries and a cervical "rearrangement". How long ago was your surgery? Have you given your surgeon or PT feedback about your pain level? Can it be related to physical activity or sitting too long in a car or even sleeping in a bit of a poor posture?
Neuropathy can be accompanied by what is called "nerve pain" or some folks just have numbness. What are you using to achieve some relief from the pain? How is it working for you?
Before I can invite other members to join in who may be able to help you spot on, I need a few more details. Would you be so kind as to respond?
While you are thinking, please be safe and protected from inner and outer harm.

@gfisher100, @garydoys. The CBD oil that I am experimenting with at this time is located at the following link. I am using the Releaf Balm 3:1 THC to CBD. https://www.papaandbarkley.com/product/releaf-balm/#
Hi Chris, so if you can't purchase the CBD oil what else would you recommend for the tingling feet and pain?
Dear Chris, I had a laminectomy and fusion a approx. 7years ago and I have talked to my doctor, surgeon, and he stated after many visits of complaining, that he could not help me. I have more pain now than I had before surgery. Sitting is a problem. It
@gfisher100, @garydoys, As.mentors we are not clinicians and may not recommend treatments or medications. We can only tell you what we are doing or have done. We can also share our results with full knowledge that everyone is different. The company, P & B has products that can be shipped anywhere .
Another company I use currently is Care by Design. They have legally shippable options.
Using Medical Cannabis requires patience and experimentation that can lead you to the best products for your needs
You mentioned that your surgeon has given up. When I had exhausted that Avenue, my personal trainer came up with 2 or 3 exercises to prevent back pain. I do them every day. Look for Pigeon pose and legs up the wall and a couple of twists. Seek a Myofascial release therapist (MFR). I can send you links when I get home. Am at the eye Doctor now. What kind of exercises do you do?
Be safe and secure.
