    A question about CBD for chronic pain

    Hi, In 2012 I underwent a Lamimectomy surgery which was not at all successful. Since that time I have been saddled with chronic pain and nerve damage to the left thigh area and toes of both feet. My back, hips and knees are filled with arthritis.

    HELP! severe pain, lumps and bruising in shins and knees

    I have had hard lumps and consistent bruising (same exact bruises on my leg) on my shins for about 6 months! I get severe pain in my shins after standing, walking, playing netball and just sitting down after doing an activity. You can see the lumps and ridges in my shins from the side. Sometimes the pain will travel to my knee. Any idea of what this could be would help so much! Thankyou

    Help, what's wrong with me?

    I've been dealing with chronic pain for as long as I can remember but it got extremely worse after I took thyroid medication that would hopefully help my hyperthyroidism. I went off it after I noticed an arthritic response and ever since, my pain has been excruciating and developed into a chronic pain issue that is not only related to joints. I've been to a rheumatologist, I've been to a doctor at a pain clinic, I've done PT for 5+ years, ice, heat, over the counter pain relief, prescription....

    Scar tissue pain after 1 year?

    I had my first knee surgery in April 2016 to fix “knock knees” and had screws inserted. In February 2017, I had the screws removed from pain. It’s been over a year and I constantly have awful pain on/around the operation site. Sometimes the pain gets so bad where I’m unable to walk or bend/extend my knee. I’ve been using heating pads, ice, topical lidocaine, etc but nothing helps. It seems to be getting worse. It’s way more intense in my right knee, with pain daily, and my left knee only occasionally....

    A Desperate Plea

    Hello, my name is Alyxandrea, and I’d like to tell you my story and I would very much appreciate your patience and attention, because there’s a very important moral to my story that I believe you would find eye-opening. I was born May 14th, 1990. I came into this world in the most horrific agony you could ever imagine. You see, when my mother was in labor, I was trapped, hooked around her pelvic bone and the cord was around my neck multiple times. They lost my heart beat, and at the time, the doctor....

    Knee Injury With No Hospital

    So long story short, amost two months ago, I hurt my knee. I was in a wrestling match (Girl wrestler) and I twisted my knee. It didn't really hurt at first. I could still walk but from here and there, I can feel a sharp pain, so I went tp the medicial attention center. All the medical attention center at the competition is put some ice on what's hurting. I went home and told my peoples what happened but of course, I knew what answer I was going to get. My mom doesn't have enough money....

    Weird pains

    So it started about 5-6 years ago I constantly had problems with moving my knees. About 4 months ago it popped and twisted in a weird way. I went to the hospital 2 hours later and the doctors said it was some kind of muscle pull or something, then they treated it with an anti inflammatory cream/ gel thing . It then happened again and that time I didn't go to the hospital. Know both knees hips and ankles constantly feel like they are going to pop or the joins aren't sitting right. I'm....
