medicinal marijuana
1 Replies
neurrorist - January 17

I have been recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, something I could have suspected with my father having it as well. The symptons became unavoidable and constant beginning a little over three months ago. Previous to this I had smoked marijuana recreationaly, however, beginning three months ago, whenever I smoke the pain becomes much much much worse. My father has a medicinal license, and has no idea as to why this happens, neither do I as it has always helped me with chronic migraines and the physical stress that came from work and being an artist. I have stopped smoking, but wonder why this could possibly happen. Every study, book, and internet site have told me of the theruputic benefits (and I feel I already know from personal experience) of it. My doctor seems to not want to discuss it (this being one of the states where you cannot get a license) but I am baffled. I have never encountered any information anywhere that would hint at this reaction. Does this possibly mean I may have a different problem? Or has anyone else experienced something similiar to this?

Your physician probably does not want to discuss medical use of marijuana due to his lack of knowledge on the subject. Give your physician links to specific research that supports the therapeutic benefit of marijuana. The American College of Physicians recently recommended increased research on this topic. It may be helpful to show this report to your physician. http://www.acponline.org/acp_news/medmarinews.htm
