My legs and knees swell up a lot when the weather is cold and rainy.
I’m not sure why, but my arthritis is always a lot worse when the temperatures are cold and humid.
The doctor gave me some new pain prescriptions, but I’ve been trying not to use them very much. I don’t want to get addicted to pain pills like my sister. She broke her hip last March and three months later she was hooked on oxycontin. It happens really quickly and millions of people end up addicted to prescription opioids because of an accident or medical emergency. Instead of taking pain medications, I have been using medical marijuana instead. The state said yes to medical marijuana 4 years ago. At that time, medical marijuana was legalized for a bunch of different reasons. There was a list of more than 12 different things and each one of the items had subcategories. The doctor had complete control over who could get medical marijuana. I was lucky that a doctor thought medical marijuana would be able to help me. I got a prescription and went to the dispensary to pick out some products. One of the products that I like best is a tincture that has CBD and thc. The tincture comes in a lot of different flavors, but I like the green apple flavor. It’s really fresh and fruity. When I have a lot of pain and discomfort, I use the medical tincture to make me feel better.
