I might try the edibles. CBD oil makes me drowsy. Have you tried CBD suppositories? They don't give that head high. It works pretty well for me and you get the full benefit without part of the med… read more

I Am Not Sure What’s Going On But I Had Severe Pain In Right Big Toe.
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Off and on I’ve been having pain in my right big toe. The pain is constant now it started about two weeks ago and nothing seems to help to relief the pain. I have a severe case of neuropathy due to the chemo I received during treatment and the super chemo I received during my BMT. I will see my Oncologist on October 31st and will have her check it while I’m there. I am very concerned and pray that it is nothing serious. Please pray for me and God bless you all!

Peripheral Neuropathy
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone seen a neurologist for peripheral neuropathy caused by chemo and do you see the need for it? Also has anyone tried the natural remedies like massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga or exercise for it and does it seem to help? Mine may be in the earlier stages but it seems to be getting worse. Thank you
