Is it possible to have sight restored after damage to eye from a stroke?

Sorry to read about your pain. Try CBD oil topical . It can be purchased over the counter. Why not try a new doctor or a pain clinic ? But bring all your records since you have a history of over dosing. Pain meds over a long period of time is not the best for you anyway or it wasn't for my best friend. My best friend was given pain meds for many years and at the age of 78 was diagnosed with Crohn's ! Hope you find relief soon or a pain clinic that can help.

Is this the same as Coolief ? I have read about that procedure but it is nothing what you had done but it does target the nerves.

I know of ablation to regulate the heart but have never heard of the procedure for the knees and hips. It sounds like a procedure that would help many. Are there restrictions such as AFIB ? In my case with the osteoarthritis of the hip I was getting steroid injections but after the last shot I won't get any more . During the last procedure my leg "jumped" off the table and since that time I have had numbness in my foot and pain where the shot was given. I have fibromyalgia too so the orthopedic surgeon said I might want to just deal with the pain and not have surgery.. I am on medical cannabis but I try not to use it during the day, only at night so I can sleep. What specialist did the ablation ?

Wed, Jul 17 6:11pm · Side Effects of Metoprolol? in Heart & Blood Health

I had many side effects from Metoprolol and whenever I would call the cardiologist's office I would get the same answer…..the benefits outweigh the side effects. Besides the metoprolol causing a very low pressure he also had me on Xarelto , that was just as bad for me and I still had the same answer, the benefits outweigh the side effects without even trying a different dosage or med. I was also on aspirin. . One of my many complaints over a nine month period was every night I had gums bleeding and averaged 2 to 4 hours sleep.I asked him how can I heal when my body is not getting rest ? I went to a new cardiologist he changed the blood thinner to Eliquis and changed the Metoprolol to hydrochlorazide 12.5 mg.once a day. I sleep longer and no gum bleeding ! I am also off of aspirin . I do have AFIB but we are going to wait and see how that goes. I love my new cardio doc and very disappointed at myself for waiting so long to seek another opinion. Never had any real health problems until I had the open heart surgery….now I have severe fibromyalgia and on medical cannabis. I suggest anyone that has any issue with any med that gives you bad side effects to contact your doctor or seek another opinion.

Thank you ….Many seem to be having problems with Tinnitus again….maybe the weather here in Illinois is effecting it too. I'll see if our Walgreens has that med……Thanks again. Have a Blessed Sunday !

That's too bad . My cardiologist's daughter is on medical cannabis for headaches. But, like prescription meds everyone reacts differently. I have had a headache for quite a while but it's Tinnitus , another problem that many seniors face, no cure and they haven'e a clue how it starts. Tinnitus comes and goes. Ugh !

It probably had THC in it…..CBD oil that can be purchased without a prescription or medical cannabis card .
