So I'm curious as to how many of you rely on either "Opioids or Marijuana?"
This OPEN discussion should be honest and without judgment because we've ALL been on one of this or the other!
I do not have Marijuana available to me currently, and since my pain levels are steadily increasing over the months/years with the progression my MS, I'd like to know how you're handling of pain IS HANDLED? Yes, my Neuro has said there is NO pain with MS and that it's all in my head. He also said that any and ALL pain medications make the symptoms worse rather than better, but I explained to him that it's not just my MS symptoms as I have several old injuries (i.e., football, basketball, baseball, banquet hall duties with tables/chairs, luggage lifting as a bellman in my Las Vegas Hotel days and so on…etc…)!
He of course (along with my anti-pill wife) completely DISAGREE with me! This of course if very frustrating to me since I know my body and what's going on and due to an ever increasing/advancing flow of "cognitive issues," I've had difficulty explaining all of this to both my wife/caregiver and Neuro…Ughhhhh! :-((((
So, after all that —— may I please open a dialogue (and I'm sure I'm NOT the only one in this boat) that is both helpful and constructive to my fellow MSer's???
I THANK YOU each of you in advance for your input and feedback, jefff
