Medical Marijuana for Cervical Dystonia; Medical Marijuana Doctor

March 7, 2012No CommentsDisease Treatment ,

Yesterday in Irvine I took care of a 41 year old women who suffered from severe pain as a result of cervical dystonia.   Her pain was compounded by the fact that she developed botulism after a botox injection 4 months ago.  Her pain was consistent an 8+/10 on a daily basis.   She had been placed on a regimen of opioids without success.   She was at her “wits end” when she came in to see me with her husband and wanted to give medical marijuana a try.

Here is the email I received from her today.  It is truly amazing how cannabis can be a “Godsend” for some patients.

Hi Dr. Breen, 

I met you yesterday. I have Cervical Dystonia and I am currently battling Botulism because I contracted it from my last treatment of Botox for the Dystonia. I tried the Medical Cannabis for the first time last night and I want to thank you. It is the first time in YEARS that I have slept a full nights sleep. I am crying as I write this to you. I can’t thank you enough. My husband and I were so scared to try this for me because he is in law enforcement and I used to be and we are also both Christians. I thank God that he lead us to you. I know that God did and I thank you for what you do.

From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!

    I have cervical dystonia. I am 64 years old and have had it for 10 years. How would I even try cannabis and how much I would need? I would not want to smoke it, only ingest it. I would love to have some relief from this. I don’t even know where to start. Thanks, Pat

      Hello Pat. Where you would start is by first taking your medical records to a Medical Marijuana doctor. I could recommend one to you if I knew your area. Or you could search Google for a medical marijuana doctor with your zip code in the search box and that will give you a list of some nearest you. Once you get your recommendation you can call me and we can talk about your options.

      Thank you Pat
