i havnt been on for a while for various reasons so thought it was about time i updated on my sativex experience and ask for other peoples experiences.
ive been on it for about 7 weeks now and am finding it very benefitional for spasms and pain, but was not expecting any benefit bladder and bowel wise so it came as a nice suprise to find i no longer need to self catheterise as there is such a tiny amount of pee left in my bladder its not worth the previous 5 x a day ritual. woohoo!
bowels are also emptying pretty much every 1 to 3 days, a damned massive improvement on once a fortnight (ouch!). mind you i am eating baked beans an awful lot cos they are cheep and sativex has eaten away at what little money i have.
i have cut down to 1 sleeping tablet a night instead of 2 and sleep on the whole soundly for 7 hours, maybe because i no longer need to get up to pee several times a night. or is it the lack of spasms.
the tremor on standing has reduceddramatically which everyone has noticed.
but a few nights ago i did wake up with a horrid prickling going on all over my body which lasted 3 days then went as quickly as it came.i did redce the dose back down to 4 sprays just in case that was the course.
has anyone else found unexpected benefits/drawbacks?
