41 minutes ago · Neuropathy: Anyone have any experience with gabapentin? in Neuropathy

Good morning Linda. @lioness. I do not use any topicals except Topricin on occasion. My ingestable THC is 19:1. High thc at 19 to cbd 1. It's also an extra strength strain. I am very careful with it. I don't use CBD oil anymore.

Hi @jbarb.. I'm so sorry to hear of your migraine struggles. They are miserable and debilitating to deal with. I've gotten relief from botox every 3 months ( but it took 2 rounds to produce). Aimovig and Emgality both did their job but after 8+ months they each became less effective. To that, my neurologist says, then we keep rotating once you build tolerance. I'm now using Ajovy which are 3 needles once every 90 days. I'm back on track…til the next time. Also, my Neuro suggested Cambia, a powdered abortive medicine, mixed with water, taken upon onset of severe migraine. It is a game changer!

My only other advice is about clear diagnosis. I was also diagnosed with occipital neuralgia which led me to greater and lesser occipital nerve blocks in my head which then turned into several radio frequency ablations to kill the nerves.

I also have Small Fiber poly neuropathy. It is whole body but is predominant in my head, neck and shoulders so, that all presents mitigating factors for me.

Some days I don't know if I'm coming or going! Trying to navigate the root of pain and cause can be a challenge. No more injections/RFA's for me as I don't believe they helped my cause and perhaps contributed to permanent nerve damage.

Hoping to have helped you in some small way. May you find answers and relief soon. Be well –

No, you don't get high unless your dose is one that you can't handle or more than you need to curb the pain. THC will bring euphoria at certain levels so be prepared to experiment and slowly work your way up the dosing and strength chart. This was my experience.

@lioness YES! I totally agree and have been thinking that same thought.

@ilovedoodie Thank you very much for the thought. I'm alllllll the way over in New York. I'm currently under control with migraines since my last bad bout. I switched from Emgality to Ajovy. 3 shots every 90 days.

Here, here. My MM is delivered to my door from the dispensery within 2 hrs of reorder. I utilized this service long before the virus bc I can't drive. What a life saver! All in all….using the product and working with educated pharmacists has been very valuable for me.
