    Chronic pain and CBD Oil

    Hi there! I have had issues with chronic back and leg pain for many years. Have had three back surgeries, need another one. At times, my pain is so bad, I can hardly function. It is debilitating and exhausting! A couple of months ago, I started experimenting with CBD Oil. I bought it at a very reputable health food shop, and only after talking at quite some length to somebody there, who seemed to really know her stuff! So, my question is, has anybody else out there tried it? Has it helped you? I....

    Back ache that won't go away

    For over a week I've been having back pain. The pain is mostly located a few inches below my right shoulder blade. I've tried NSAIDs, heat, massages, yoga, even going braless. But the pain keeps coming back. When my husband massages my back he said that he feels knots and massages the pain away but the pain comes right back 5 to 10 minutes later. I emailed my doctor. He said to try epsom salt soaks, deep tissue massages and stretching. But the pain keeps coming back. My doctor doesn't....

    INpatient Pain clinic

    Does anyone know of the existence of an INPATIENT pain facility? It seems like every hospital system has an OUTpatient pain clinic, but none have any inpatient. What I am looking for is a pain clinic that does not release you until they are able to find a pain management that works. I have severe chronic joint pain due to joint laxity. All my joints hurt, but no swelling. Everything hurts at a “9” all day, every day. No opioids EVER have helped. I have had a spinal cord stimulator, and several experimental....

    Ankle Pain

    About a months ago, I was playing tennis and I sprained my right ankle. For the first few days it was swollen and painful. Eventually the swelling went away, but I still have ankle pain. I try to play tennis but I have to stop cuz of the pain. It also feels weak at times, I would walk and it feels like it would give out. My doctor said to ice my ankle and rest. It is frustrating because Ive tried massages, icing, and pain meds, but nothing is working.

    Mysterious and progressively worse morning pain

    Hi, I am an 18 year old female and for the past month or so, every morning I am beginning to be woken up with extreme pain on my right side of my back. It feels like my muscles are on fire. Laying back down does nothing to help, really only makes it worse. Mornings like today, I just lay there until I fall asleep again. Strangely, if I do manage to fall back asleep, it's gone when I wake up again. If I stay up, it will go away within about 30 minutes to an hour. I have tried taking ibuprofen....
