I have in the past reported about my neurotic, narcistic, demanding, unappreciative mother, but you will be happy to know that while that continues and I always wonder how long I can deal with it, this post is not about that.
She, like I am finding out from many that when you are in your nineties pain comes with the territory. A friend of hers has told me she just accepts it as part of life. My mom asked her pain doctor what causes this (in her world there always needs to be a reason and a cure) and the pain doc said it is caused by being lucky enough to have made 91 trips around the sun.
Anyway, my mom gripes and complains about everything so hard to know if her pain is as debilitating as she sounds, but let's assume it is.
She has had those cortisone type injections but they have had limited impact
My pot smoking brother has suggested she try CBD gummies, which if I understand correctly come OTC but not with THC and with THC with prescription. He says it would help not only with her pain but with her sleep problems.
Another issue with my mom she will read every disclaimer and possible side effect and after reading not take then.
But has anyone had any experience, good or bad, with CBD gummies and have any other info I might try to be aware of?
I did talk to her pain doc nurse who did not discourage the idea at all. I will wait till my mom actually sees her pain doc in mid Septemeber.
