I know that a 5+ hr drive is going to cause me some pain, and I won't be taking anything except for my perscribed medication for Fibro with me.

Has anyone here travelled to the USA who takes canniboides? If so what did you do for pain management?

What Tricks Do You Use To Handle The Pain From Weather Changes
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

The triple whammy. OsteroArthritist, Neurophathy, fibromyalgia all react negatively to cold rainy weather. It doesn’t happen concurrentlly, but they stack. Putting the pain in the stratosphere.
The last two winters have been brutal. Blizzards and record breaking rain fall. Since controlling the weather is impossible, how do i survive?

Dizziness
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

One of the main symptoms I experience for 9 years (after sudden onset) are strange sensations on upper sides & top of head (brain) that triggers dizziness/ disorientation & eventually headaches- especially to back of neck. Of course MRI & labs normal. Anyone experienced this?
