Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself

Posted by Kelsey Mohring @kelseydm, Apr 27, 2016

Welcome to the new Chronic Pain group.

I’m Kelsey and I’m the moderator of the group. I look forwarding to welcoming you and introducing you to other members. Feel free to browse the topics or start a new one.

Why not take a minute and introduce yourself.

I’m all for the cannabis in the oil form and the weed. I used to smoke for many years for pleasure, and the relaxation, feeling of well-being and good sleep would be extremely helpful to me now. However, here in Oregon, you can by cannabis in all forms on every corner. I’m too concerned about the contents. Once there is some proper oversight and regulation, I’ll be a consumer again. Definitely want to learn more about restorative stem therapies and whether it would be an option for me. Thanks for your input. Ute

Oh boy Here we go again. I need another procedure (or operation) on my right hand now for carpel tunnel syndrome. Nine years ago I had this done on my left hand and it is still like new and can do everything with it. At this time my right hand is crippled with the rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis.And you should only see my poor nails on this hand with the psoriatic nails Then after recuperating from this, both of my legs for ablations. This would be for chronic veinous insufficiency. If I have not said it before I will say it now: "If you live long enough you might get everything", Oh my, what we will do to stay alive with a good operating body. Put my mind into "I Robot". Everything is with the mind the big control machine. I do thank the doctors for their expertise.

@adalwolfa Living in Oregon would certainly afford you lots of trails to investigate. We live in rural southern OR, and my stepson lives just outside Portland. He assists with different runs/rallies in that area, like Hood to Coast. I use a tincture right now, but open to therapies that will allow restorative rest, which is very illusive to me.

That is the clinker. With legalization comes regulation. Also funds are released for research. I haven’t smoked it since 1978. If you only buy medical grade does that help?

I buy from a State controlled Dispensary . Since weed was legalized in November, 2012, the State of Colorado has realized in excess of 1 billion dollars in taxes from the sale of cannabis and related products such as creams, edibles, tinctures, etc. I have a medical card so i get reduced prices on the tincture i use.

I tried it and I didn't get any relief at all!! Nor did I get high… I tried smoking it and the gummies… So I guess that's not an option for me!

I tried pot once in the 70's – one puff made me so sick I thought I might be dying but I couldn't call an ambulance because pot was illegal then. How sick? Immediately I got a blinding headache, desperate thirst set in, and I broke out in fever blisters, then I laid on the floor with vertigo for 2 hours. A few years later I tried a puff of hash – the same thing happened. A few years ago I had to go to the hospital with an allergic reaction (soybeans), they gave me morphine for the pain – I got a blinding headache, I became sleepy, it maybe dulled the pain some but no 'high' or 'happy' feelings like addicts describe, and not the other symptoms like pot and hash gave me. The nurse came to room the next morning with a hypodermic needle and asked if I was ready for my pain shot. I said "No, thank you, I want to go home". Peggy

Hi, All ! I'm starting to get the feeling that medicines for this capricious condition I have work for awhile, then I have to try something else until that stops working, then something else or back to an earlier medicine. Has that happened to any of you?
Lioness, I tried meloxicam, it gave me the runs (every day, it got worse and worse, there were many hours a day when I couldn't go anywhere). When I quit the meloxicam, the runs stopped. I'm glad it works for you, we're all different. Peggy

REPLY

@pfbacon Yes we are hope you find something that works for you There are alot out there I think in the past I had alot of them but this one helps the best

Hi, diagnosis two years ago with kneecap arthritis and due to caregiver duties I push it aside. Caregiver duties had ended seven months ago and it seems the arthritis has worsened and in new places in the last couple of months. As my doctor says it been here all along, I just push it aside. I when from kneecap to back, hands, shoulders and both knees arthritis. In addition, nerves problem in the back, hands and legs. Physical therapy does not help. Trying ice compress, warm compress, anti-inflammatory and steroids. Trying to stay positive but it just seems hopelesss. Any advice?

@lioness conolidine is doing utterly nothing for me. I even called the company, and a worker there said I could take two droppers full. That did nothing. I am returning it. Let me know more about how you do with it, as time passes…..Lori Renee
