I have heard this many times., I have a close friend with severe pain due to damage in his back. Doctors put him on strongest pain meds available. It took the pain away but put him into a depression. He was contemplating suicide. He received an ok from his doctor, and a certificate from another to try Cannabis. It worked. He did not completely stop his Pharm meds but dialed them back significantly, to the point that he got his life back and is happy again. His back is not repairable, but now he can cope, sleep, and even wake up with out taking very strong drugs, that impare his ability to do simple tasks, let alone drive.
If you are in a state where this is legal, and you can get approval from a doctor, it may be an avenue to restfull sleep and pain relief, without some unwanted side effects some pharm drugs can cause. Keep in mind that you still have to research and find the strain that will work for you. There are many people working night and day to develop strains that will be effective for many types of severe and painful conditions.
Good luck to you all in finding some sort of relief from your painful conditions, be it pharm, or something else. Whatever works is good.

Thanks for that info. I have not been aware of this. I looked at your link. I tried a TENS machine a couple of years ago but it only made my pain worse. I have overexcited nerve pathways according to the specialist.
