I take lyrica but it doesn't work for my worst pain ,so I would love to know if something works ,really works
Medicines work different for different people. What works for me is 300 mg of Gabapentin takem 100mg 3 timed a day, I wouldn't suggest more I would give that a cpl weeks b4 changing it. Skelaxin is a great muscle relaxer that targets the body and not the mind, so I can take it and function.
Cymbalta takes a little longer to really help but taken as directed it helps.
Maybe discuss these with your doctor, they are common treatments for fibromyalgia.
Praying this helps🙏🦋
Viewing CBD as a "pot product" is unfortunate, as it really has nothing to do with pot. As @A MyFibroTeam Member points out, it can be extremely effective. Everyone responds to it differently though. In my case, I have some pain relief from using CBD, but the biggest benefit I get is my ability to better cope with my pain issues. My wife has seen a huge difference in this area in me.
CBD product do not contain THC (psychoactive component of marijuana) beyond trace amounts - certainly not enough to have any effect at all.
One point of advice, though, the 'quality' of CBD products tends to be all over the map. So, if you're going to try a CBD product (which are usually extracted from industrial hemp... no marijuana... and no, they're not the same thing), I would recommend doing your research and finding a high quality product from a reputable source. The product quality can make all the difference. It's not cheap, but this is one of those "you get what you pay for" circumstance.
I have seen my fair share of drug abuse (including 'pot') in family and friends and (being a child of the 60s and 70s) am well familiar with related "devastation" that accompanies abuse of this and other drugs, but I would not let that cloud my judgment regarding CBD. It's akin to saying I wouldn't take penicillin because mold is harmful.
I got my license from a Rhumatologist where I go online and buy from a producer who is licensed with Health Canada 🇨🇦 and is delivered to my door within 2 days.
What helps me the most is Ativan and Tylanol Extra together. I'm intolerant to most medication except those. Epsom salt warm baths heps a bit.
