I am new to this group and have a quick question. I haven't used mj in years since my first pregnancy and nursing relationship started. But now I am pregnant with #2 (at 22 weeks if that matters), still nursing a toddler, and am having horrendous leave-me-in-tears-and immobilized on the ground s-i joint pain. my first visit to the chiropractor today was beneficial and informative, but squatting down this afternoon triggered another round of intense pain to where I could not walk for over an hour (and panicked when said toddler disappeared into the garage for several minutes and I cannot move!). So my husband recommended I try mj for some relief. any thoughts?
I absolutely hate taking meds, and I am doing my best to refuse tylenol since when you search for safety in pregnancy they say that while the safety of tylenol has never been studied in pregnant women, it has had the least amout of adverse effects. Not reassuring. I am resting as much as possible, stretching as advised by chiropractor, icing the area, and trying to maintain a positive mental attitude. will this help? how much should I use? should I use it daily for a while or just when in severe pain?
thanks so much for any feedback!
