Ask A Doctor – Migraines & Chronic Inflammatory Disease

November 26, 2017

Migraines

Question: I know CBD is very beneficial for migraines. Why you think it helps?

Answer: Migraines are neurological. They are caused by alteration of metabolic activity at the area of the midbrain. The midbrain is considered the “migraine generator.” This alteration of metabolic activity results in a “spreading wave of depression” which travel to the occipital lobe (causing the visual aura), and may travel to the parietal lobe (which results in the symptoms of tingling), and sometimes also the frontal lobe (causing stroke-like symptoms).

Migraines improve on their own, without treatment, but the associated pain during the migraine can be incapacitating. CBD, which works centrally, can help alleviate the discomfort associated with the migraine.

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Disease

Question: I have chronic inflammatory disease. I’m in constant pain & suffer from daily headaches. I also have epilepsy. I was told that all this is a normal side effect from having brain cancer, surgery & chemotherapy 3 years ago. I believe some of this is true, but I do not want to be heavily medicated for the rest of my life! Advice? I take Percocet as needed, Topamax, Imitrex, nortriptyline. They work sometimes but not always. How do I know what mixture of CBD will help me?

Answer: You have asked me many medical questions. Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy is often considered the chronic form of Guillain–Barré syndrome. Symptoms include fatigue, general malaise, and peripheral tingling sensations.
Treatment is usually with centrally acting agents including antiepileptics, antidepressants, and opioids. It is one of the most frustrating diseases to treat in the medical community because, so little is known about it.

However, CBD (cannabidiol) is recommended as it does not have any significant interaction with any of the medications you mentioned and as your disease is “central” and CBD works “centrally”, it will help you.

Owning Guns is a Constitutional Right, Unless You’re a Cannabis User

September 28, 2022

Take two of the most hot-button, tendentious issues of our time – cannabis use and gun rights – combine them, and now we really have a debate.

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]

Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
