Well, today has not been the greatest of days. When I woke up, I had a headache and my legs were hurting, about an 8 this morning. So The first thing I did was take all of my medicine for the morning. But, I also added some Excedrin. BTW. for those of you that take Excedrin Migraine, take a look at this post — https://jimandms.com/forums/topic/follow-up-for-tecfidera-experience-3/ if you haven’t already.
It is about my experience with Tecfidera so far. But at the end, I talk about Excedrin versus Excedrin Migraine. I will give you a hint what I say there — They are the same drug except for the label. So don’t spend the extra $1 or whatever it is in your area for the “Migraine.”
So anyway, I am a bad boy and my doc tells me all the time to not mix medications. But since I am on the Tec and I don’t want to flush, I took an aspirin with the Excedrin. And I have had people ask, but I take a full 325mg aspirin. I have not had any problems with flushing since I started the Tec.
But anyway, and this is the first time I have mentioned it here, I got my Medical Marijuana (MMJ) card from the State of Florida. So I took some of that and it has knocked the leg pain down. And my headache is gone also. I cannot contribute that strictly to the MMJ because the Excedrin usually helps with the headaches. If it doesn’t get rid of it, it usually knocks it down to the point it is bearable.
Anyhow, today I did take a small puff off of my MMJ vape. I don’t take large puffs from it. I do not use it to get “high.” I use it to help my legs. I only use enough to help my legs. But, it did help my legs. So instead of them being an 8, they are now probably a 6. So it helps me. If you are like me and have tried all of the pain meds out there with no relief, then see if you can get Medical Marijuana. You don’t have to use it to get high. Like I said before, I don’t get high when I use it. I just take small puffs and get enough to make my legs feel better.
So since I am feeling better, look for another article or two from me today. I am going to be checking all of the research that is out recently and hopefully, there is good news about something coming.
