Fired up my TENS machine today. I have no idea how to use it. I've read the instructions and put the pads on where I think they should go. I don't know what it's meant to feel like or anything. I think a trip to the pharmacy is in order to ask them for a bit of help!
I also bought a bottle of CBD oil today and it tastes strangely like over stewed, unsweetened black tea. Like the remnants in the bottom of the mug. No noticeable pain relief yet but I've only had 2 drops, so I'll give it time.
I was given chili cream yesterday by the Pain team and they told me it would burn. So I put it on a couple of times yesterday and it was all fine. Put some on before bed and then woke up 2 hours later feeling an intense burning pain at the back of my knee. I think it must have been that I slept with my leg slightly bent and it got sweaty/pores opened and the cream got deeper or something. It wasn't pleasant!
CBD crystal arrived in the post last week but I'm yet to try it. I'm thinking maybe cookies or a cake. Does anyone know if dissolving it in chocolate rather than butter would work?
I'm optimistic that something or a combination of these things will work and reduce my pain!
