Hi @Mbuletza - great question and I am sure some members will be responding to you; however, I want to bring your attention to some of the top discussions were CBD was discussed as a method for treating pain. Feel free to check out these discussions and comment, as these are already on going discussions. Not each is in the RA group, but still may be of assistance as most of the conversations are about pain.
I also would recommend you join the chronic pain group by clicking here and clicking the Join Group button. I would also recommend posting your question in that group as well - That group is dedicated for anyone, no matter what the cause (RA, OA, lupus, etc.), who is dealing with chronic pain.

@Mbuletza how has the fetanyl patch worked for you? Did it help with pain? What about side-effects?

Yes it helps. It’s better than pills that have a roller coaster effect. It’s now been over 2 yrs on fentynal and the pain is mostly controlled but not eliminated. I don’t have any side effects that I’m aware of. I just worry because it is an opioid and the nature of RA is good and bad days. I’m just so tired of dealing with pain every day.
