My wife was recently diagnosed with lupus, and for the last 13 years i just thought she was being crabby. I am not sure i want the alcemist and bueracratic witch doctors treating her with overpriced and harmful chemicals. any feedback on Medical Cannibus and strands that work better than others would be appreciated. I am considering becoming a care giver for her.

Love and sympathy to you Rhonda, the real unfortunate part of this is we are truck drivers and cannot use mmj for fear of losing our jobs, My wife fights me every time i try to get her to take vicodan as she hates pills and has a sister that is an adict she thinks she will bcome addicted like her sister. she says she can deal with it but there are days when she cant and she will take a pill, but honestly they dont help her much! she had her first uncontrollable vom ting fit about 2 weeks ago, scared the HELL out of me.
i think we're in for a bumpy road ahead. thx 4 the love and concernmay it return to you 100 fold

I have had Lupus for 27 years. Living with all the pain during the flares.I take an anti-inflamatory.Some doctors prescribe steroids. I cannot take steroids. I have learned to block my pain through pain managemement.I think it is good idea for you to become her caregiver, as it can offset alot of financial issues.When I went through the vomiting it was also accompanied by a migrain head ache.I can certainly relate to her and her illness. One day at a time! If the mmj works for her them I suppose you should do what ever is best.No two pt.'s have the same symptoms and no cases are identical.Blessing and good health I send to you both.

i am a 28 year old male living with lupus and i use cannabis for when i have joint pain (pardon the pun) it seems to help as it is a natural anti-inflamatory. i dont know about its use as an actual treatment for the lupus its self. i doubt it helps with regulating the different levels that need to be monitored by a professional.

I'm from puerto RICO 23 years and I have lupus since last february. I was a marihuana smoker but the dr said it will raise my blood pressure so I stop using it. Now that my blood pressure is neutralized I started to smoke again and it really works with the joints pain. Believe me, I'm a physical therapist and it is a real phyical job.(sorry for the bad English)
