    Opened up today's paper to this article: patient says she has a form of MS that doesn't progress. Either she is misinformed or the reporter misquoted her. And Percocet? Didn't know they use opioids for ms pain

    There are good reporters and then there are those that aren't so good, and it looks as if the reporting here might be at fault. What this woman probably meant was that she doesn't have one of the progressive forms of MS. Nowadays they're classifying MS as RRMS, PPMS, and SPMS, with maybe PRMS sometimes but they're getting rid of that category.

    I started the higher ratio of 5:1, CBD:THC. So far, the ratio seems more effective than 12:1. And somewhat less expensive as you don't need as much...so far. No side effects so far.
    I was able to drive 20 miles in a rainstorm and got no neuropathy. I had to drive in the storm to see doc to R/o a UTI. So far, no evidence of it...

    Guess I missed something, BBS. Why did the UTI need to be ruled out if you'd had no evidence of it?

    Too bad you had to spend your energy driving 20 miles in a rainstorm to see a doctor. I hope the UTI got ruled out, at least!

    They ran a urine test and did vag exam. Both normal. Took cultures just in case.
    She said if it comes back normal, may be MS related. Two of my 3 biggest attacks in 20 years started exactly this way. Waiting for shoe to drop.

    I was stoked that I could handle the drive in the storm and had no pain.

    Do you run on adrenaline sometimes?

    I've heard of an adrenaline rush, and sometimes I think that's how I get through times when I have to do things I wouldn't ordinarily be able to do without symptoms.

    I know what you mean about an adrenaline rush. Sometimes I think I get one, but mine seem to be short lived as I get so tired so quickly after.

    Increased the 1:5 ratio MMJ from .33 to .40ml and that seems better.

    Speaking(reading) of CBD/THC.... I'm out, I have to go to the dispensary and pay cash for it. I'm somewhat cash poor right now because I had to pay a $250 adoption fee for Karma, my new service dog in training. She's a 40#, hound mix bundle of joy. She looks like a mini-black lab/greyhound cross, but specific heritage is unknown.

    I'm hurting w/o my tincture.

    I hope that your medical coverage can reimburse you for that hefty adoption fee, or no?
