Marijuana for chronic pain?

Hi, I just want to ask is someone has any idea on which marijuana strain would be very effective when it comes with chronic back pain.
I injured my back at work and been suffering for almost 3 months now and mostly can't sleep properly at night. I refrain my self on taking meds coz they only take the pain for a minute or so and back again. So that's the reason I started my ...

Weight gain

Dear sufferers, Has anyone put on much weight through being disabled with fibromyalgia? I also have M.E. I was a size 14, but now I am size 18, and now finding those clothes are too tight. That is another thing with fibro. We cannot bear anything tight on our painful bodies, right? Just want easy, floppy, comfortable clothes. In fact, I live mostly in my night-clothes.

Any thoughts? sincerely, Roselil

Oxygen treatment

I see some good research about this. Anyone ever tried it?
Seems a bit daunting - you have to start off with 5 days a week for 3 weeks. 90 mins a go.

Not so good if you dont live locally.

depo provera

I had this contraceptive injection earlier this year and I noticed that my symptoms got dramatically worse. I have since read on google that it can either bring on or worsen fibro. Begs the question, why did they give it to me???? I was due my second shot last month and have not had it - never having it again. I am so tired all of the time and my limitations are still way higher ...

Trying Pregabalin anyone use Topiramate?

Hi

For the second time I agreed with my GP to try pregabalin for fibro pain. As before I'm finding it helps with the pain BUT side effects are stupidly tired and spaced out and 'lazy'-like (just can't do anything basically). This is the same as the last time I tried it, plus I was on it longer and had a big increase in appetite and put on weight. Last time I started on 50mg ...
