I deal with chronic pain 24/7. I don't know of any other way to ease my pain enough so I am able to leave my bed. Does anyone have any advice or knowledge of something that works for them?

      @Heidi_M marijuana definitely can help! I also agree that not enough movement will make you even more stiff and sore.

      As a person who has dealt with chronic pain for almost 25 years, I have found that it has to do more with lifestyle change than drug regiment. The more active I am the more movement my joints get, and as a result, I don’t feel quite as stiff. I also tried Neurontin as part of my treatment regiment. At one point I was taking nine pills per day. I questioned what that was doing to my liver, And then looked for alternatives. One of the choices presented to me was the use of medical marijuana. I can only speak for myself, but the cannabinoids and terpenes in marijuana helps me deal with the significant inflammation and pain, while also helping with my anxiety.

      I deal with this too. My PCP has me on Gabapentin to try to help with my pain level.

        @BethanyAnnette gabapentin is awful! I can't take the substitutes the cdc is pushing on us. I'm so close to just jumping off the cliff and actually being able th breath and sleep for a night.
