Re: MS Hug information - updated 4/2/13

lovebug - I look forward to reading about your experiences with the triggerpoint injecyions HappyPoet - that MS hug stuff can be hell all right. "Having to deal with horrible MS attacks is bad enough, but having to deal with clueless doctors is just downright unfair." So true!!!! Since my diagnosis ...

Re: MS Hug information

I went to a Pain management class today at a pain clinic and I started talking about finding out more information about block injections. Nobody had even heard of this yet! I heard of block injections about 4 years ago at Pain management classes at our local pain clinic from an anaesthesiologist th...

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

I mixed a bit of sour diesel that was given to me with my regular Indica MM prescription stuff today for some nasty back pain today and the pain which previously would send me for acupuncture , that pain just went away. I swear by this stuff after all those horrible years of sleeping pills, opiates,...

Re: MARIJAUNA BEING ILLEGAL IS PURE "BS"-PLAIN AND SIMPLE

My MM still keeps working for me - take in it tea or soup at night (sometimes use a vaporizer but not big on that ) and I sleep like a baby for at least six hours without having to get up to pee every hour as I used to do in my pre MM days. What a wonderful thing to have happened to me - no more sle...

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

I should have also added that I also put about 1 teaspoon of Indica to soak into a hot cup of cream of tomato soup for 5 minutes and then eat the soup and all. Takes about the same length of time to work - is a marvel for spasticity well with no other effects from it. The capsule form was made up by...

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

I am taking cannabis in pill form as smoking is not an option for me. It takes a while to take effect - 1/2 an hour to an hour. It's a reduction mixed with grape seed oil in a capsule - helps me get a good night's sleep and really helps with spasticity in a way that doesn't leave me with the weak ru...

Re: counseling

I have often thought about trying counselling but the emotional toll of interviewing various counsellors out for a good fit is proving too much for me.
Wish there were an easier way to find one. :sad:

Thankfully, at least for me, LDN is an inexpensive experiment unlike Big Pharma's DMDs and such.

Re: MARIJAUNA BEING ILLEGAL IS PURE "BS"-PLAIN AND SIMPLE

.....and the really nasty part is that this is the neuro that I am stuck with as he was assigned to me in the "system". I'm praying that my hopes of remedying things through a legal advocate will pan out, not that I have any great hopes of any neuro but I have talked to others with MS here that actu...

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

Prohibition of a drug that works is just so wrong but as long as it doesn't make big money for Big Pharma and subsequently big money for big Pharma's friends in government many in government will continue to push for the prohibition. I am now allowed to legally possess MM in Canada and it helps with...

Re: MARIJAUNA BEING ILLEGAL IS PURE "BS"-PLAIN AND SIMPLE

And these are the very docs that we entrust our care!!!! Pretty scarey, isn't it? Oh yes, scary all right! But to me what is even more scary is that this person has the title of Clinical Professor Emeritus at the main MS Clinic here. Where is MS research going if these are the attitudes displayed b...

Re: Lower Back Pain

My lower back pain is pretty well gone thanks to acupunture, physical therapy and medicinal marijuana. My physical therapist gave me some very targeted stretch excercises to do and as well as acupuncture over several months which did amazing things for horrible lower back pain that I had had for abo...

Re: MARIJAUNA BEING ILLEGAL IS PURE "BS"-PLAIN AND SIMPLE

"MARIJAUNA BEING ILLEGAL IS PURE "BS"-PLAIN AND SIMPLE" Ya think??? It's all about lies and deceit and GREED. I so agree about it being BS but then I had my neuro who diagnosed me with SPMS and say there was nothing I can do for it other than lose 20 lbs (& gets who knows how much kicked back from B...

Re: Alpha lipoic acid and L-Cartinine

I was taking L cartinine along with R+ala, iodine, coQ10. & vitamin A as per a naturopath who advised a protocol from the late Dr Harry Foster. It hasn't seemed to have any effect other than giving me headaches so I cut the dosage of the carnitine to one third of the dose and my headaches cleared. T...
