Booze, Weed, or Amitriptyline?
(Tip: please say Weed!)
I have a mixed selection of pain issues including a double stenosis, which because it’s all recent and won’t get better is probably taking me into mild depression. I usually rely on the booze, not because it works that well but because I have always loved booze.
Having found this site I am very excited about the potential of all these quality strains that are new to me.
In the meantime my Doc wants me on the Amitriptyline. He thinks I am- but I have a drawer full. Never started.
So biggaz, what varieties commonly found here are best to ease my woes??....I bet you know!...and I’ll sure appreciate it (vendors welcome!)..

You should try a TENS machine for your back pain. Cheap & no side-effects. Min hr at a time a few times a day and stick at it for a few weeks. Strange sensation, but you get used to it after a couple of sessions. After more than a decade of chronic back pain from degenerate discs, the TENS has been more effective than any of the meds or methods I have tried.

Well that’s very interesting DTB ‘cos the missus bought me a TENS kit and it’s been sitting in its box on my desk where I have been eyeing it sceptically for some time having no idea what its all about! (reading the instructions being the last resort!!) I’ve got nothing to lose so many thanks for the heads up, and the wifey will stop nagging me too!

Essentially you're trying to re-train your brain so it stops interpreting that nerve signal as pain, or at least turn the volume down, and that's why the sessions need to be at least an hour long. It's a gradual process. Sometimes I'll wear mine for 3-4 hours if I'm doing a spot of DIY or any job which stresses my back. Hope you get some benefit man!

Pleaseeee dont take those, I would strongly advise not to take the amitriptyline, through that shit in the bin!
This is tough for me to say but i feel like i should explain my experience with amitriptyline,,,,
My doctor prescribed me that for nerve damage, it was ok for a while untill i increased the dose. Then came the horrific headaches which lasted for days. This drug affects the chemical balance of your brain, when i stopped taking it I had the scariest mental episode, which ill try and explain. I was sitting at my desk everything was fine and all of a sudden I felt like I was going to get up and hurt myself, it was like someone else was controlling my thoughts. I was terrified but aware the whole time, I sat there frozen for 2 hrs as i dear not move, I was fighting myself not to get up as i didnt know what I was about to do. This is not like me at all and as you can imagine was terrifying! 90% of the medications they give can be replaced with cannabis, with far less side affects. Go for an indica dominant plant any of the dawg strains allways work best for my pain relief, there my go to and are really effective. The booze is your choice but it has wreaked my nervous system over the years and have several nurological problems due to alcohol. Stick with the weed and get those body repairing cannabanoids in ya, its the best medicine ;) Gl with the pain relief, stay safe stay medicated.

Wow, amigo, reading that makes me very happy that the pills are just taking up drawer space despite what my doc thinks!
I’ve got a life long quality relationship with booze that I don’t want to end but it’s not classically therapeutic. So yes, I agree entirely that having found this site it’s time to explore the wonders of weed...thanks for sharing!

yeah deep aint it. The problem is with doctors they are educated poorly on medications, take this drug or take this, mainly man made garbage that gives bigger problems than what you are trying to fix. Run by big pharma companies, scared of this devils plant. cannabis has been used medicinally by EVERY culture on the planet for thousands of years untill they gave it a bad rep. They dont want you growing your own medicine, which we should all have the right to! I have bad information and because I cant take anti-inflammatory,s the doctor said nothing I can do for you. Ive found that tumeeric helps massively but they dont tell you that because of poor education. Nature knows best

You’re right- you’ve just gotta follow the money. There is no money for big pharma in supplements like turmeric, or generics like aspirin or curing cancer rather than easing symptoms. I’m not saying there aren’t modern medicines that work but they only hit the market when the price is right!

One thing you haven't listed that you may want to consider is RSO or Rick Simpson Oil. Couple of vendors sell it but one particular one specialises in it called Oilman and he's very professional. I've used RSO a few times for arthritis pain and it works really well.

Thanks, that’s really interesting. How do you actually ‘use’ an oil? (Sorry if that’s a real noob question!)

It comes in a 1ml syringe way I use it is I put a bit about the size of a grain of rice in my mouth, leave it to swill about for around 5 mins and swallow. Starts working after an hour or so but its a bit faster acting doing it after a meal. I'm currently suffering badly with avascular necrosis of the hip joint taking the oil helps me walk without a stick.

Fascinating, thanks. But is it also a good high?...can you drink booze at the same time? Glad to hear you get relief amigo...

Cheers dude I've heard people have good experiences drinking with RSO but it's not something I've tried. For me the high by its self in high doses is a bit like taking a tranquilizer, but I always use it 3 hours before going to sleep(it really helps if you have sleep issues too). One thing I have noticed it works better after eating and hits faster the longer it's kept in the mouth.

Easier said than done but booze should be a last resort. Hope the weed helps you; and would be my recommendation. Listen to the doctor if it doesn't.

no worries mate. really comes down to personal preference but I like a nice haze or mimosa. half the fun for me is trying new strains. look at the genetics when you buy so you get an idea for what works best for you. maybe try a heavy indica for the pain. let me know if you need me to look over any listings for you before buying.

Thanks, that’s interesting. I’ve put both an Amnesia Haze and a Mimosa in my ‘basket’, but yet to try. So much to sample, it’s gonna be a journey! What do you think about Shatter?...or edibles generally?...

If it is pain then RSO is the baby,been using it for years for spondylosis of the neck,you can drink with it however like any weed it is not a good idea to use after you are drunk.
Oh it also cuts back your consumption of other cannabis as a joint on top of some RSO will blow your tits off in a good way lol
