I fell in 1996 15ft. broke L1-2-3-4. Two docs have said fibromyalga another two arthritis but still no help.
Not quite sure what u r saying about the accident in 1996? Did you break 4 vertabra in your back?? If you indeed had this type of injury I would imagine a good neuro or ortho doc or pain managment would be understanding and work with you on some type of long lasting pain meds, and I sure would not want to chance street drugs in case they drug test you. My friend that I ask questions about on this site goes to pain mngt doc & we have witnessed many being asked for urine test (to there surprise) on recurring visits. I hope you find your answers and I am not judging you pls understand that, I would eat dog poop if I hurt all the time so I truely wish you luck & hope a painfree life is ahead for you. Momma N
I am also a green card holder in the State of Oregon and it doesnt do jack here to have a card when it comes to pain management docs. They all think alike and Dadswatchinu is right when it comes to street drugs so they call MJ. My Doc asks me everytime if I am smoking pot for nerve pain and I say yes. If you are taking it for a valid reason, then be up front to your Doc and say I tried Marijuana and was wondering if this will help. I had a fusion and two rods placed along both sides of my spine T1-L-3... 4 years ago and the pain is still there and if I feel like smoking herb instead of relapsing with pills to get relief, my doctor is happy to know that I am smoking natural something instead of taking pills to destroy my liver more than I already have. I guess there is so many ways depending on which Doc you go to.
My doc has hippy hair and wears a shark necklace and he isnt into the gonja at all but he believes in his patients for sure. Hope you have a good Doc that is caring and understanding, Best of luck, message me and let me know what you decide to do... if u wanna
It has been my experience with my pain management Doc that I have routine random urine test. So just be up front with the Doc that way you start out on the right foot with nothing to hide. I am sure they deal with way worse than marijuana. Whatever you do good luck and I hope you find relief from your pain soon
