The main noticeable difference is my improved sleep, because the pain I usually suffer in the night has considerably reduced. I would usually wake every few hours when I turned around, turning because I was experiencing a 'toothache' gnawing pain in my hips or pain in my neck, leg cramps or pain in my diagnosed 'stiff shoulder'.
The pain and discomfort from these has completely disappeared, enabling me to sleep through the night and usually in one position.
Now, I am not claiming 'cure' yet because as many know, people with fibromyalgia and M.E are prone to flares and distinct changes in patterns of pain and discomfort, however, I am loving my sleep and I'm loving the relief from this night time pain and I look forward to seeing if this relief continues.
I've had a few restful days with the Bank Holiday Easter weekend but I am back to a busy day tomorrow. I'm interested to see if I can cope better at all. At the moment I am still aching during the day and have weak muscle strength but I am not suffering with any acute pain. I have not done much moving about (I can usually not walk more than 20 metres without pain or discomfort or having to rest) but will be more active at the place I volunteer tomorrow and Thursday.
One place I have not seen any reduction in discomfort is the cramp I have in my hands, the stiff and sore joints. Perhaps this is not a symptom of my fibromyalgia, but something else. Time will tell.
Let me know your CBD story in the comments. I look forward to hearing your experiences.
