thanks Jim, I did go to a pain center my primary internal medicine doc recommended. I got a lot of good information about nutrition and effect on inflammation but walked away with a prescription for Lyrica. The doc called my experience with marijuana a paradoxical reaction. My primary who gave me the required legally required authorization had no useful comment. Dispensary where I bought the marijuana just sent me this answer.

Hi Norb,

That is very unusual, and I have not heard of those issues before. The two strains you mentioned are supposed to be strong pain relievers. Marijuana does have a strong effect on the nervous system, and that could be causing the painful reaction.

I’m not really sure what to suggest, however I would check with the doctor that gave you your medical authorization. They might be able to offer suggestions.

Sorry we couldn’t be more helpful.
