This is good news! My doctor took me very seriously today when I brought up my pain level and questioned him about my eligibility for disability. He was honest, a lot of my tests need to be redone. I've a had some doctors who are... no longer in practice and need more reliable answers/more up-to-date papers before I go to the disability office. But he has a referral out for an MRI of my neck to see if there's a visible reason my arms are going numb! (I have 2 past injuries to my neck and this doctor helped with 1 of them.) He increased my Cymbalta in hopes of it helping my nerve pain. I always forget it helps with nerve pain and not just as an antidepressant. So I'll be starting 60mg of Cymbalta tomorrow morning. I was also honest with him about my weed consumption (a new thing for me) and he didn't say anything negative! He only asked if it helped, and if so, how? Just normal questions I believe. Today has been good. I'll have so many bad days but today was a win and I'm so happy!!!!

      Weed is many times the only saving grace. I tried cbd alone but the weed is better at stopping the painful cramps/spasms.
