Early May 2022
Early May, and what a start to my birthday month it was
2nd May: Every bone in my body is aching, my throat is sore, it hurts to talk, cold then hot then cold, been sneezing, been sick, got a headache... what is this thing I've got? and how have I caught it?
3rd May: Feeling a little better, but got a feeling my back is gonna be hitting me tomorrow
4th May: Just after 3am and OWWWWWWCCHHHH
Aching from head to toe, slight high pitched noise in my ears, tingly all over, Fibromyalgia working with my Ankylosing Spondylitis to woke me up, hate this, I really hate this. Pain at level 9.5 out of 10
5th May: So after my full allowance of Co-Codamol, and Gabapentin backed up with 10 doses of CDB oil, the pain has FINALLY gone down to 7 out of 10, still not a good level but its getting there
The Co-Codamol and Gabapentin are on prescription, where as the CBD oil is not, I can pay upwards of £28 a bottle for a full spectrum oil, the most I have paid is £45. I am trying to reduce down the opioids (Co-Codamol) as I hate taking them. CBD oil seems to be the only real option for me right now. I also buy CBD gummies which are useful when out and about. If it wasn't for my PIP payment, there is no way I would be able to afford this, and would be 100% reliant on the tablets from the doctors, which I don't want to be.
