Yesterday in Irvine I took care of a 41 year old women who suffered from severe pain as a result of cervical dystonia. Her pain was compounded by the fact that she developed botulism after a botox injection 4 months ago. Her pain was consistent an 8+/10 on a daily basis. She had been placed on a regimen of opioids without success. She was at her “wits end” when she came in to see me with her husband and wanted to give medical marijuana a try.
Here is the email I received from her today. It is truly amazing how cannabis can be a “Godsend” for some patients.
Hi Dr. Breen,
I met you yesterday. I have Cervical Dystonia and I am currently battling Botulism because I contracted it from my last treatment of Botox for the Dystonia. I tried the Medical Cannabis for the first time last night and I want to thank you. It is the first time in YEARS that I have slept a full nights sleep. I am crying as I write this to you. I can’t thank you enough. My husband and I were so scared to try this for me because he is in law enforcement and I used to be and we are also both Christians. I thank God that he lead us to you. I know that God did and I thank you for what you do.
From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!
