I have been vaping herb now for several years, mainly indicas, for chronic insomnia and relaxation. I also vape and do some edibles (I make potent AVB firecrackers) for relaxation, recreation. Around mid-December 2012, I started getting shooting pains in my right hip and front and side of right leg. I did some six weeks of UNsuccessfull physical therapy. I also took naproxen, which may have had some anti-inflammatory effects, but did NOTHING for the pain. Last week I tried Tramadol, which also did NOTHING for the pain. Tomorrow (Tuesday) I am scheduled for an MRI to hopefully shed some light on what is going on and maybe a fix. Physical therapist thinks pain is starting in lower spine, but doc thinks its starting in the hip. While the herb I am using now can sometimes relax me to the point I can temporarily tune out the achiness, it does nothing the the intense shooting pains. I am wondering if there are better strains, perhaps sativas, that will reduce the pain more. I do not want to become an oxy,vicodin slave, but I am running out of options and my doc has ordered me some oxy. I am a legal herb user and live in Oregon. There are a number of clubs in my area so I have a lot of options, but need some feedback on what works best. Because of my chronic lung issues, the exertion of limping/using a cane/and pain/ make it so I, at times, can only walk a few feet before I run out of air and become exhausted.
