Medical Marijuana May Help Fibromyalgia Pain
Lynda, a 48-year-old mother of three who lives in upstate New York, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2000. While there are prescription medications for fibromyalgia, she’s found one unconventional drug—marijuana—that really does the trick. “I would use [marijuana] when the burning pains started down my spine or my right arm, and shortly after, I found I could continue with housework and actually get more done,” says Lynda.
