There is no cure for MS, but that doesn’t mean you should be miserable. There are a lot of pharmaceuticals that can be used to treat the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, but these can have harmful side effects and may not work for everyone. Luckily, Florida offers another all-natural treatment that could reduce the occurence or annoyance of symptoms.
Bladder control issues
The most embarrassing symptom of MS is the inability to control the bladder. Patients may have frequent urination or urge, difficulty holding the bladder when needed, or leaking urine when coughing or sneezing. These are all indicators of different types of bladder control problems, but all of them are shown to improve with cannabis use.
The most uncomfortable and frustrating symptom of MS is usually the muscle spasms. Spasms can happen anywhere in the body, and not all treatments will work for all areas or muscles. However, ingesting cannabis could significantly relax the muscles so that spasms are eased.
Pain management is a big problem for people with MS and other chronic conditions. Opioids are no longer prescribed much at all, but alternatives haven’t really been discussed or developed. While medical marijuana will not completely ease your pain, it will relax you and decrease overall inflammation, which will, in turn, decrease your pain.
