So many of us have been there. Bitten by a tick and a few days later you feel like you have the flu. You feel feverish, have bone and body aches, you can't think straight. It's Horrible! It's Lyme Disease!
For many of us bitten, though, the symptoms don't go away, or it gets worse, and we feel hopeless as no one listens to us, well, at least not the insurance companies.
Unfortunately, doctors face issues with insurance companies, some get even worse treatment, getting their licenses revoked. Watch the 2008 documentary "Under Our Skin," it's an eye opener and nothing has changed in the last 10 years. FYI, it was produced by a nonprofit, and continues to bring info to the public.
So, we are left to find alternatives to help ourselves live an enjoyable life. For this, many are relying now on CBD Oil.
If you are lucky enough to live in a state with medical marijuana, perhaps you can get that. All other states allow CBD. The derivative from cannabis that is legal in all 50 states.
Many people, including myself, have had relief from the symptoms of what we call Chronic Lymes. This is my own experience, and while there are tests going on, we cannot proclaim anything more than that.
The joint swelling and pain is relieved, I don't feel like my head is "swimming," and I'm not groggy. Since there's no THC, you don't get a high or loopy, I just got relief.
There's a ton of info out there about how much to take, but, in my experience, you really need to find your own level for number of ml or mg each day.
We would love to hear from others who have this disease, and/or have used CBD for relief.
Thank you and be well,
