It seems kind of odd to me that I am going to a doctor that doesn’t have an MD at the end of his name, and I am feeling better than I have in years.
Whoever thought I could go to a non-doctor for treatments with my phantom pain.
Phantom pain happens when you have lost a limb. Although the physical entity isn’t there any longer, the brain still perceives pain through the nerves. It was to the point where I wasn’t sleeping. I would try to rub where the pain was coming from, but there was nothing there. I went to a holistic healer and told me to try CBD products. CBD helped to an extent, but it wasn’t anything that helped me to sleep. He then suggested a CBD and THC combination that would help me to sleep and also help to ease the pain. He told me that once I was able to sleep more comfortably, the nerves may calm down and stop sending false signals to the brain. I found a cannabis store near me, and went in to talk to someone. The young woman who called herself a budtender, told me she had someone in the back who could tell me more about pain therapy through the use of cannabis. The man who came out, looked no older than the young woman, but he was very knowledgeable when it came to cannabis and CBD. He was able to tell me what kind of marijuana I could use to help with the pain, and which would be best to use at night for sleep. I was really glad I had gone to that doctor for pain management.
