Fibromyalgia is a pain disorder that affects millions of people.
Fibromyalgia is chronic pain and soreness all over the body.
It can cause me to have a heightened sensitivity to pain. When my fibromyalgia is really acting up, I don’t want to go anywhere or do anything. Sometimes the flare-ups will last several days or a week. My kids were complaining that I didn’t want to spend any time with them, so I went to the doctor to see if there was anything that I could take to help with the pain. The doctor told me that I would do well to talk with a therapist that could help with the depression. He also suggested trying medical marijuana. The doctor sent me to a medical marijuana treatment clinic so I could speak with a special treatment physician. Only the special treatment physicians can prescribe medical marijuana in this state. It’s funny, because there are several states across the country where you can walk into a dispensary and freely buy marijuana. Here where I live, you have to go through a rigorous exam and screening process in order to qualify for medical marijuana. The prices are extremely high and insurance doesn’t help at all. Even though I have a note from the doctor saying medical marijuana will absolutely help with my fibromyalgia pain, the insurance company still will not cover the plant because it is not approved by the FDA. I look around to find the best deals on medical marijuana before I make any purchases, so I can save the most amount of money.
