BB: Def try MMJ My pain is neurologically based. MMJ is a life saver. I don’t know if it would help your type, but it won’t hurt, except your wallet. Go see a MMJ practitioner: The ratio of THC to CBD is pretty key to what type of pain it will help. My preference is the tincture under the tongue. Works in 45 minutes, lasts 5 hours once you get the right dose nailed down. Mine gives me zero side effects. Works better than any of the western meds that wee tried. Your MD may have a closed mind about it since there is minimal research except coming out of Israel. The Feds made sure research in USA would be illegal on MMJ.
