I am sorry you are having these issues.

what is your height and weight?

can you improve your diet and cut out gluten, white flour, pasta, bread, sugar, sodas, alcohol? this can help decrease inflammation in your body and help you loose weight

you can eat more protein and fruits and vegetables which can help you loose weight and decrease inflammation in your body.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No and I can't stand even cigarette smoke so with my lungs I truly don't think that would work..I can't handle perfume, gas smells ECT..
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

some dispensaries have extracted CBD and marijuana organics into oils and lozenges that you can dissolve under your tongue or swallow as a pill to help decrease pain.
