I have multiple sclerosis and I will turn 54 in October. I was diagnosed in 1988 believe it or not, and the most prominent thing is, I have to walk with a cane when I’m out of the apartment. However, that being said, I have witnessed this MS grow increasingly worse. and I am honestly in desperate straits for anything that would help me. I have only tried marijuana just a very few times and it was only in the past two years. Some of it was too strong for me and it scared me off. It was in a joint form and also in an edible form. I find myself doing less and less and lasts all of the time because my walking is so bad. My balance is completely off and I go to physical therapy for that.
Unfortunately, I have just recently broken a bone in my foot and I had to stay off my feet for eight weeks. That is pretty much my life anyway, but missing eight weeks of physical therapy has put me back so unbelievably far. I am so very uneducated when it comes to marijuana except for the fact that I know that CBD does not get you high and it does help with pain. I am wondering if THC or maybe the CBD or a combination of the two, would help me have more fluid movements as I try to walk. There is no question that I can walk with a cane and then I can drive a car and that I can go to the grocery store and all the other things that people do, however, if I do one of those things, consider me completely shot for the day. So much work goes into getting my legs to move and keeping my balance at the same time. I have seen numerous videos of marijuana helping people with ALS, which is far more of a nightmare than what I’m going through. What I am going through now is that I find myself just sitting for about 90% of the day. I have been on disability since 2005. And as I’ve said, I still am considered remitting relapsing, praise God for that, but I do see the MS progressing and though there is no way to stop it, I have got to find something so I can feel at least more comfortable.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I truly hope that you can help me and educate me more in the comments below.
All of my gratitude.
