Newbie from the UK - Cannabis gives me excruciating pain

When I was a teenager my arches in my feet fell/collapsed causing my knees and ankles to roll in or out. The heels of my feet are sore and tender too. I've been wearing arch supports ever since, I'm now 42 and without them I'm in excruciating pain. Also In my teenage years, I visited my doctor complaining about pain coming from my left ribcage. He examined me and found nothing and diagnosed it as muscle irritation, I visited my doctor a couple of times regarding this pain and again muscle irritation. I've also fractured a couple of fingers in my lifetime that has now caused arthritis and suffer from CTS in my left wrist. I always been in pain since my teenage years and have managed it with pain killers etc.
I had kidney failure 10 years ago due to Henoch Schonlein Purpura (HSP) which was mis-diagnosed for 15 years. I was also diagnosed with Osteoporosis in 2015 as the doctors accidently found brittle vertebrae from an x-ray while looking for something else.
I used to smoke dope with friends when I was younger too and in my 20's. When I was stoned I started getting bad pain from the areas I've highlighted above. So I quit smoking it thinking that the cannabis caused the pain.
Anyway a friend gives me a Cannabis capsule and said it should help, I was reluctant to take due to my previous experiences. He's always known of my health issues. I took it home and hidden it away about a month ago. So Friday night I decided to take it.
Within 45 minutes I was in unbelievable pain, excruciating pain all the way down my left hand side, fingers, wrist, ribcage, left knee, ankle and heel. My right knee, ankle and heel also affected. The pain lasted for 4/5 hours, horrible night. Since then I still feel the pain, it's so uncomfortable. It has many times in the past faded away but never entirely. I've been able to manage it using pain killers and mind control. That too has its side effects.
I am now thinking that if cannabis does has curing properties in some or most cases, maybe in my case its making myself aware that I've sustained trauma to my body over the years and is releasing that trauma as pain?
I've seen my doctor many times about the pain.
Advice would be very grateful?

I am not a doctor so I can't help too much with a discussion of the physiology of cannabis & pain. I know for me, it doesn't dull the pain like an opioid, it just makes it easier to ignore. Heightened senses from THC could trigger what you experience so maybe high CBD would help?

You should head over to our Medical area. SweetSue's Cannabis Oil Study Hall is a thread that would be worth a look or ask on the thread for help & someone should chime in.

After you accepted my friend request I tried to access your email through your profile so I could email you but couldn't find it. I thought if we became friends that might work. To be honest I have not been on for a few days I've got things in my life I need to prioritise. But thanks for getting in touch!

WAMS your family and life always comes first, we will always be here when you are ready [emoji2][emoji1303].

I'm still not very familiar with using the desktop version bud, too much visual information gets confusing for me.

I tried to send an email to you with my email address on the desktop version but not sure if it went through.

Hey Bud, I've sorted it. My earlier posts the other week when I mentioned I had activated my VCard for some reason it didn't activate. I have now managed to activate it. Go into my profile and under contact there should 420magazine web address there but underneath there is VCard. It allows you to download the vCard to access my email address.

Hi Wams,

I know someone with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) who has a similar reaction. We believe it is the THC but have yet to find any CBD products without THC.

Have you tried a low THC/ high CBD strain? Ask around, maybe someone you know might have some. Here in Canada our Licenced Producers have 0.59% THC with 17.84% CBD. I'm sure I don't have to tell you to just try a little bit if you find flower or oil like this.

Good luck.

Peace. :peace:
