NonprayingMantis: Ipinched a nerve last year and I know how you feel. absolute agony.

New age stuff (homeopathy, acupuncture etc) only works based on the placebo effect, and since I trust in science rather than bull that means it wont work for me.

I just took as many drugs (legal) as I could get my hands on. starting with the easy stuff, Neurofen, paracetemol etc, moving onto codeine and morphine.

I tried chriopracter/ostepath, but they didnt do much for me.


Did you try pot at all? There's a reason places in the states have medical marijuana!

(If you google around, i'm pretty sure there have been studies about what it can do for pain management, would be more studies if it wasn't demonised. As for the harm it does, well, alcohol causes more harm than pot. Alcohol should illegal and pot legal, not vice versa)



I was in agony from back pain one night. I tried some marijuana. Worst thing I ever did,. It had a magnifying effect. I could see every ruptured cell in 3D retina quality images and this is back in the 90's, Went to the Docs,the next day, hé gave me some pills, Ahhhh bliss....

Two wrongs don't make a right, I am sick to death of "alcohol causes more harm" as a justification for pot. The two have nothing to do with each other

Medical marijuana is not the same as the stuff you may buy/grow/whatever. Doctors here are aware of its uses and can prescribe in certain circumstances.  If pain is that unbearable that you would consider using marijuana you should ask your doctor about it.

I feel for you
I am a Homoeopath and I suggest you get the homoeopathic remedy from the Simmilin Pharmacy in Welling Arnica 200/with Ruta grav 200 mixed
Take 2 drops as needed for pain
I was killed in Whangarei hospital with an overdose of morphine so avoid all such daangerous drugs and only use homoepathy and vitimins
The best help is to go to a registered Osteopath too, avoid physios and chiropractors is my advice

I didn't know  medical marijuana was different. The only reason I tried it was the pain came on at night-. time and I didn't have any painkillers. I never really liked smoking weed but because I had heard it was a good pain reliever I gave it a try. The worst pain I experienced in my life. It's like they say a little knowledge is dangerous....
