I've been in pain for about five years. Only recently has a doctor ordered X-rays for me so we could see what's been going on. Diagnosis DDD and DJD right knee. Prior to this, I spent the better part of the past five years on one narcotic pain med or another. After weaning myself off the meds, I made the decision to try medical marijuana. It's legal in my state so I registered for a mmj card and purchased my first bit of medicine. I was doubtful that it would be helpful, but I figured I didn't have anything to lose. That was two months ago.
I can tell you this about medical marijuana. It has helped me tremendously. No, it doesn't take all the pain away, all the time, but it sure as heck takes a big part of it away by acting as an anti-inflammatory. I only need a very little bit several times a day to keep me up and operating. Has anyone else tried mmj and would you care to share your experiences with it regarding your pain?
