So, as you know, I suffer with fibromyalgia. But my ‘suffering’ has increased a lot recently. My other half is an absolute angel and, noticing this, he did some research and purchased a CBD oil medipen for me to try. I’ve been considering them for ages but was unsure on what companies to trust, etc. I thought it might help me a lot, and hopefully others who are unsure, to blog about the effects.
I have no idea how much of it I’m supposed to “smoke” so I tried a few drags this morning as I was having a really bad day with my fibromyalgia. Woke up for work after only managing a couple of hours sleep and the pain was horrendous! My trouble is that I can’t take the pain killers I usually need, without eating, due to how strong they are, they can upset your stomach if you’re not hungry. So, I thought I’d give this a try as it’s been sitting there for a few days.
I hadn’t really noticed it’s effects until a few hours later, when it wore off. Even on my strong pain killers I was struggling to walk, lift my arms, function mentally and the pain was close to unbearable. This is how I’d felt the night before, and that morning before I used my medipen. I’m assuming that it is the CBD oil that is responsible for easing my symptoms.
I’ve just had another few puffs now and it’s made me a tiny bit out of it, but I’m also exhausted from work so that could be causing that. But, I can function well enough to write this and I can now sit up with my legs slightly bent. Before this, I was lay flat with my legs slightly elevated due to my extremely sore knees. However, my knees are sore as they have little cartilage, not because of my fibromyalgia. Also, my ribs aren’t hurting anymore so I’m assuming it’s true that CBD oil reduces inflammation too as the muscles and cartilage between my ribs were swollen today, causing pain.
Of course, these things could be simple coincidences and it is extremely early days, so I may not be singing it’s praises so highly in a few days. But for now, so far so good.
I’m interested to see if it has any lasting effects tomorrow with regards to improving my pain and inflammation.
Thanks for reading!
