@Hidden username‍ THC helped my spasms... indica was more sedative for me, but is was more effective than sativa for what I needed it, which was for pain and spasms. Have you ever tried cannabis before? If not, I highly recommend starting slow and see the amount you need to feel some relief... edibles hit harder and the feeling does not last as long as vaping.

Has anyone out there had any experience with EMG guided Botox injections? Any success stories? I will be doing it for my right hand focal dystonia. I almost opted out of it, but I'm going to try it.

Update: failed. No improvement. Just an added weak grip from the Botox...which really is annoying and scary.

Okay the question out there, so I have used on this issue. I'm not a pot head or anything of the sort. I can and family member seen the results. I have taken a couple of puffs and OMG,  I could feel my shoulders relax and feel comfortable feeling of your shoulders back where belong. They were no longer up by my ears. It felt so good that I wasn't in so much pain. It works. The other stuff, the oil it didn't work for me.

I did try medical marijuana but I found after a few weeks my short-term memory was not doing well. I'm still having issues with it from just that short time using it. Will not be going the medical marijuana route. I'm glad it's working for you though.

Great information but my Dr out of NY who treats me does not seem open to medical marijuana and in N.J. you have to be referred by the Dr treating you for two years. . I take Klonapin at bedtime but that’s the only relief I get. It’s very frustrating.

The I get in my muscles after a couple of hits is amazing.  I just wish it lasted longer!  Hopefully with increased Botox, physical therapy and medical mj I'll get some sort of long term relief.

Has any one had cbd oil help them at all.  I’ve tried Botox shots years back but never did much.
