An MRI showed arthritis wrapping around the major nerve that comes up to the top of my head. She wants me to see a pain management doc and get a nerve bloc but my cardiologist doesn't think it will work. I take CBD & ThC and that controls it. Have any of you had this and did you get a nerve bloc and if so, did it work?
I have been diagnosed with costochronditis and my chest swells. The rheumatologist and my cardiologist say there is nothing they can do about it. I have had to go up 6 sizes in my bras or I can't breathe. It has been going on for over 2 years. It will go away and then come back. Now I have pain under my left breast but the docs say everything is fine. My pulmonologist says I have arthritis in my ribs and my PC did an MRI of my head and neck and the arthritis is wrapped around my major nerve, causing a constant headache. She suggested I see a pain management doc and get a nerve bloc but my cardiologist doesn't think it will work. Any ideas?
I tried the premixed .8CBDto .1THC- it was not as effective for my pain as .7CBD & .2THC which I mix myself. I was told that the THC will help the pain when mixed with the CBD. I have Sjogrens, osteo arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuropathy in my feet, severe degenerative joints in my thumbs, arthritis that has attacked my nerve in my neck causing a constant headache, maybe RA and need a hip replacement. So I am in pain a lot. Unfortunately, I have a low IgM- a low immune system. I had Gamma brain surgery last Jan. and got an infection at the pin site that took 9 months to heal. CBD & THC have really helped me.
He has kept to the same diet all his life except now he eats half of what he used to eat. He has been losing weight. He has bouts of loose bowels but the old gastro doc said they were normal as he had his gallbladder removed 5 years ago. They are getting more frequent. He has type 2 diabetes and the VA doc changed his meds and now his sugar levels are high and his A1c is 8.9. We are waiting for the results of the ct scan and then he will call the VA to have his meds changed. He has a PC outside of the VA and she had wanted him on a med that the VA wouldn't approve. So the VA put him on a different one that doesn't work. He gets his drugs from the VA as he is a Vietnam vet and has agent orange.
My husband has had Barretts for 10 years and is now having difficulty swallowing- occasionally. He sees a new Gastro doc on 11/20 as our usual one just retired! HIs PC wanted him to have a ct scan first as she wants his pancreas checked. Are they connected? Thanks for the help.
I didn't finish but hit the enter button by accident! I am concerned that the Diazapan didn't last the 12 hours that the PC said it would. When I had the Gamma surgery, they gave me Versed and I had an opposite reaction. It made me hyper! The nurse gave me my CBD and it calmed me down. The Dr. had told me to bring my CBD with me. I strongly recommend CBD for pain. I take .7mmCBD with .3 of THC and it takes the pain away or at least makes it manageable. I also use heat on my neck. I am afraid of neck surgery since I have such a low immune system especially IgM. Jill, you might have the same problem with arthritis in you neck and bone spurs pushing on your nerve. My PC showed me a picture of the nerve that goes from your neck to the top of your head and that is exactly where the pain/headache is. Sometimes it is severe – like now- and I am waiting for the CBD to kick in. Good luck and let me know how you feel and if your Dr. thinks it could be from the neck. Joan
