New medicine 4 me…. MediJuana

Having PsA is not easy. Being in constant pain really sucks. Having to ask my 13 year old daughter to open a can because i couldnt turn the opener at age 47 was something i couldnt do. I just could not do it. I mean here i am a grown man once strong as a horse now falling apart. It hurt. It hurt inside where no-one can see. It brought me to my knees.

To top this off i have 2 herniated discs in my lower back. This has caused my right thigh to go numb. Now and then it feels like someone just held ice cubes to my leg at other times i get a burning sensation, almost like someone held a lit cigar to my leg. I have actually jumped because of the pain.

Now…. add a ton of nights where i fall asleep only to wake in a couple hours and lie there the rest of the night (about 4 or 5 hours) then have to goto work. I am truly falling apart. Well this has got to stop……

I found out last year my neurologist now prescribes medical marijuana. My daughter and her partner both use it for their ailments with great success. I would like to try. So i got certified, and went to the dispensary. After speaking with the pharmacist i decided on 2 items to try.  I am pleased to say the sleeping is no longer an issue. Every night at bedtime, 2 or 3 hits on the vape and sleep comes quick. If i do wake up at 1am like before, i will try to get back to sleep, but if like before i cant get comfortable, or my back hurts that bad,  2 more puffs will do the trick. I have a spray for daytime use that doesnt give you the high so i may concentrate at the office. OMG… This is life changing. Next i need to bring my medicine list into my next appointment. Lets see if we can know a few pills off by replacing them with a little weed. Did you know its anti-inflammatory, kills pain, can be used for muscle spasms. Yes its got a LOT of uses, ill keep exploring , reading and let you know. Have questions? Please dont be afraid to ask. 🙂

Sweet dreams all…
