I am currently using 2 100mcg Fentanyl patches and 100mg MS contin bid to try and control pain. Even with the morphine and fentanyl I can't get rid of the constant pain in my feet and achilles tendons. Not to mention the spasms and that "cinched belt" type feeling I get around my abdomen just below the sternum. What I really want to know is does medical marijuana really work as well as so many of you have stated and was that just the smoked version? Is there a different form US doctors can write rx for? Pills maybe and if so do the pills work as well as the smoked? I have tried nuerontin and a whole list of different meds over the years and have never had a day or hour off yet.I thought I was just going to have to continue to deal with the afore mentioned pain and spasms that the other meds don't work on. But If marijuana works my family will just have to learn to deal with the stigma. Your thoughts on the matter will be greatly appreciated as well as give me ammunition to use on my Doctor when convincing him to write the rx. I thank You in advance, Roy.
