I have this along with severe osteoporosis.............cannabis most definitely helps.........if by helps you mean makes all the difference in my life.
We have a front passing through today and I am glad for cannabis.

Same boat here. It’s been killing me lately. The pain is unbearable when it kicks in. It’s a different type of pain from when I had cancer. It’s equally bad but it just feels different. One was severe sharp, cutting, burning. The pain now feels as though it’s the aftermaths of a bunch of those Thai kickboxing guys practicing on my leg all day long. I don’t medicate before work. Maybe I need to micro dose. I can’t even go to the gym. And it’s taking a toll on my mental health and my performance at work. I really don’t want to start narcotics. I’m not worried about addiction just other side effects.

How do you all cope with the mental health impact?

Got my paraffin wax warmer. It feels so good. Kinda like as a kid with your feet in the smooth mud but warmer. My mother’s day gift from me to me. My new nighttime routine. My feet and hands are so smooth. It is one more thing that can help. It is a temporary type of pain relief.

I've had a parafin treatment in the past when getting my nails done. It's heavenly. I envy your wax warmer Carol lol. Enjoy!

I found a chronic pain support group. My first meeting is a few weeks out. I think I’d do better to find one for cancer survivors specifically but I haven’t had much luck with that.

Since your screen name indicates you might, do you meditate? Don't answer if I'm out of line, it's none of my business.

I did during those years I was drug tested. Attended yoga retreats, five hour group meditations, and whatnot. Its harder now while using cannabis, but it left me a foundation of sorts that I can call on and it lets me stay calm and relax my body. If I'm hurting I get comfortable, get rid of distractions, focus on my breathing, blanking out thoughts, and after some time my body follows my minds lead and I can relax.

Nearly 20 Percent of Patients with Rheumatologic Diseases Consume Cannabis​

Clermont-Ferrand, France: A significant minority of patients with rheumatologic diseases – such as lupus, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis – actively consume cannabis, according to data published in the journal Rheumatology.
A team of French researchers conducted a meta-analysis of the relevant literature specific to the use of cannabis in patients with rheumatologic diseases.

Researchers reported that approximately 17 percent of all patients with rheumatological diseases are active consumers of cannabis. Cannabis use was most common among patients with fibromyalgia. Overall, cannabis consumers tended to be younger in age and were most likely to report using cannabis to mitigate pain.

Authors concluded: “In this meta-analysis, we found that one in six patients suffering from rheumatologic disease actively consumes cannabis, reducing in pain reduction. … A favorable effect of cannabis on pain in our meta-analysis reinforces the idea that cannabis could be used for analgesic purposes.”

Placebo-controlled clinical trial data published last month in the journal Pain Medicinereported that the administration of plant-derived THC-rich cannabis oil is effective and well-tolerated among fibromyalgia patients. By contrast, less data is available at this time assessing the efficacy of cannabis for other rheumatological conditions, like lupus, spondylitis, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Full text of the study, “Cannabis use assessment and its impact on pain in rheumatologic diseases: A systematic review and meta-analysis,” appears in Rheumatology.
