> I think we're getting closer to understanding how to regulate it. I think cannabinoids may be a useful route of inquiry.


Excellent! Do you think my docs can give me a scrip for these "cannabinoids" of which you speak ? I have never heard of these, let alone smoked them...hehe.


> Well, my recent years have been occupied by a novel medical stressor.

Ugh. I'm truly sorry to hear that.

> Unfortunately, I experienced a re-injury of my ulnar nerve during that surgery (first injured during my fall), and came out of the anaesthetic screaming.

Wow, I'm on anesthesia rotation right now, so this is particularly interesting. Do you know what they used? I see bad wakeups sometimes when people come out of general quickly with desflurane, but this is just an observation of mine.

> I could not tolerate opiates after about a year, and since then I've relied on periodic stellate ganglion nerve blockade, and mindfulness meditation. I've only recently been able to post again. I was quite incapacitated by it, for a good long time. I still have hyperalgesia and allodynia, but my symptom baseline is in steady decline since the nerve blocks were initiated.


Again, sorry to hear this, but I'm very glad you found something that works and are getting better.


> Apart from the period during which I withdrew from the opiates, my mood has been stable. I attribute that to my collection of coping strategies, mostly acquired from prior experience.

Yeah, I remember you had some great CBT-like coping strategies that we talked about years ago.

Hope you continue to get well.

Matt
