copy from the other thread--
most likely herniated disc in my neck at C6 level, have an MRI wednesday next week to confirm the damage. will get the results somewhere in january.
meanwhile, i have been cooking myself some cannabis in beeswax to give it a rub against the pain and it works perfectly. because it's illegal when driving i'm going to make some hot pepper beeswax next week.
so to anyone that can get their hands on some pot for medicinal reasons (or not)-- don't smoke it, just give it a rub!
