Re: Wanting to Learn About MS
Hi Teacher Lady. I think what your sister in law needs the most is a supportive person she can discuss her illness with. MS is different for every person, that's what is most scary about it, not knowing from one day to the next what might happen. One of the most common symptoms is fatigue, so offer to help her with errands, housework, etc, but try not to act like she's an invalid and can't do for herself. As far as marijuana goes, yes it does relieve pain and nausea, however I have found that since I got MS when I smoke marijuana for recreational purposes it makes me feel dizzy and weak. there is also no evidence that it is more effective than prescription meds for relieving pain. But it does make you feel really happy, which is nice if your feeling bummed about having MS.
