My joints give me so much pain, there are days I can't even dress myself properly. The chiropractor didn't help, the yoga can only be done on days where I can actually move, and I can feel my body deteriorating from the football and wrestling physique I used to have in school. The medications help take a little bit of the sharpness off the pain, but it's still there. I don't want to be popping pills every time I hurt and not being able to do the things I love is worsening my depression. Is there anything I can do to help get some relief?

      @tosha2140 a dispensary will have it, you want full spectrum. Cbd kind of works if you don't want the high or thc.

      Have you tried cannabis on any form? I take rso oil and Ive never been happier. I do acupuncture twice a week and the oil everyday. It's the only thing that helps me, they also make cannabis lotion that works pretty well on the joints for days when it's not full volume pain.

      You should check out DDPYOGA. Diamond Dallas Page has helped former wrestlers like Jake the Snake get back into shape. Lots of testimonials on youtube, Arthur's story especially inspiring.

      Working with a physical therapist may help. They can adapt a program specifically for you on your good days and bad. Best of luck! I’m currently having a bad day where I can’t bend over so I feel ya.

      See what else the doctors can do besides give you pills. Tell them about your concerns for not wanting to pop pills. Doctors are there to listen and if your doctor doesn't listen sorry but you're gonna need a new doctor.
