Pain is second only to severe joint damage as the most devastating symptom of rheumatoid disease. But unlike joint damage, joint pain is something that everyone who has the disease experiences.

I’ve also tried marijuana for pain. It worked better for my fibromyalgia pain then any conventional medication I’ve ever tried (excluding Lyrica, but side effects prevent me from taking that).
I find it very frustrating that the UK govt will not recognise cannabis has any therapeutic qualities, despite evidence to the contrary, hence it being legal in some forms across 23(?) States in the US. What is needed is some proper controlled trials. I’d happily volunteer!
I think it’s a good idea to legalize it, in general, but obviously for pain control. I don’t see how we can accept others’ pain when there is an answer for it, at least for some. I have never tried it, but if my pain comes back like it was before, I hope there are other alternatives for me then.
