Choose CBD For 5 Reasons
I Choose CBD For 5 Reasons
I do choose CBD for five reasons. First of all, whole-plant extracted CBD Oil was the first in my life to give me relief from Severe Anxiety without narcotic sedation! Valium (Diazepam) was my prescribed drug of choice for almost thirty years.
I took my last one in February 2018 and it is November 2019 and I prefer the unprescribed, legal, CBD more complete relief. CBD products made from the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Plant are not psychoactive.
To explain, I don’t like sedation from drugs for I have to take psychiatric medications. Having Bipolar and choosing to be a medicated bipolar I must take in my case several medications. While these aren’t sedating in the same way as a narcotic they can be distracting.
Secondly, the focus for me is on pain and today I choose CBD and Lyrica, but no narcotic, no opioid. From a ruptured disc in 1977, (just think that is 2018-1977=41 years) I was first prescribed Vicodin. Then, another ruptured disc in 1984, and the same thing called Lortab!
Opioid Prescription Trail
I was on the opioid prescription trail! Until 2016, Oxycodone, then July 2018, when I stopped the opioids, and I chose CBD for milder withdrawals! I must say, the opioid prescription trail was a long one for me!
In 1990, my physician prescribed Hydrocodone 7.5 for lumbar disc disease, migraine, TMJ Dysfunction pain, and intense, general, undiagnosed body pain!
Through the years I was treated for bursitis and had fluid drawn from both knees, and in general, treated for inflammation in both shoulders and other joints. I took the Hydrocodone 7.5 and still ached unmercilessly through I took many Cortizone shots.
Fibromyalgia and Symptoms
Thirdly, my physician of twelve years diagnosed my symptoms of inflammation, severe body aches, and gastric problems, and more and he said, “I read your twelve-year history, and in my opinion, you are coping with Fibromyalgia.”
So intense, undiagnosed, body pain, and gastric problems, after twelve years became Fibromyalgia with all its connotations of inflammation! In 2002 Fibromyalgia was being diagnosed but there were no specific remedies, except ‘treat the symptoms’.
Symptoms of Fibromyalgia:
- Generalized body pain-it can come in different ways, but the pain is the definitive symptom of this musculoskeletal disorder, which affects 5.8 million people in the United States.
- Gastric Problems
- Mood disturbances, Anxiety
- Fibro Fog-Dazedness, Memory loss and forgetfulness
- Insomnia, inability to get restorative sleep
- RLS Restless Leg Syndrome, more than 1/3 of Fibromyalgia patients have this
- Tingling, burning, stiffness, numbness throughout the body. Any may be made worse by lack of rest. These neurological symptoms are similar to those of Myasthenia Gravis and Multiple Sclerosis.
- There are Several more Symptoms! Varied by count and degree per patient.
Attention: In Aug 2017, researchers discovered Fibromyalgia amplified pain signals in the patient’s body as a matter of course of the disease. It does this by affecting the way the patient’s brain processes pain signals.
Fourth, during 2008, I was examined and tested by three doctors, an ophthalmologist and two neurologists, then told I had Myasthenia Gravis. This is due to the onset of double-vision.
CBD and Inflammation
Fifth, I have a chronic pain diagnosis due to scar tissue causing inflammation from a ruptured-disc in my cervical spine. Due to the Myasthenia Gravis, I’m not supposed to be sedated deep enough to have surgery, so they can’t repair my neck.
Not only do I choose CBD, but I also decided to be a Sales Representative for CBDBioCare!
I choose CBD for these five reasons and more, but I am going to stop here and give you a:
