I think I started a long discussion on marihuana but it was not my intent.I simply wanted to get off these meds because they did not help with paresthesia. After nearly 3 years of GBS I know there is no med for this, so if marihuana helps go for it! There are other RX meds of the anti-depressant nature that may help tell the thalamus that everything is just fine today. That is a diversion too. Jack Daniels has provided that as well. The nerves in the body are devastated by this illness. They either grow back or not. If not, you remain in distress. One man’s opinion. Thanks for all the feedback. Happy holidays.
