I don't post on this site often, I am usually on the Arthritis site but like you guys over here also suffer from chronic pain. I have RA, fibro, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis as well as diabetic neuropathy.
I live in Canada as well and also take Medicinal Marijuana. I've got to tell you that I was not sure about it when my Rheumy recommended it but it helps so much with pain and I also suffer from ++++nausea from pain and the Cesamet really helps. It is really too bad that you do not have access to this as it is a big part of my treatment plan and is very effective.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!!!!
