Smoking chamomile. Supposed to be good against asthma.
Gout. Is similar in effect and feel to arthritis.
An excess of uric acid causes the sinovial fluid of the joints to crystalise. This causes inflamation and swelling of the joint.
If you have ever seen, or had yourself, a broken bone. When the two ends rub together. THAT is what gout feels like for 24/7, or until it goes away.
Other than that, imagine having your joint forced apart, and someone inserting sand paper, or broken glass.
For example, from my bed to the bathroom is 20 meters. When I have gout it can take 15 to 20 minutes to get there.
If I have it in both feet at the same time then I have to go to hospital by emergency ambulance, and spend two to three days in bed.
Last time they gave me 25 Mil, 100% liquid morphine, by mouth, which tastes bloody 'orrible, before the doctor had even seen me.
Within the next 24, I was given around 150mil, all together. Thats 150mil PURE.
For gunshot they recomend 50 mil.
Strange thing is, I STILL could not walk. Funny that.
Colcichum is used in Germany. Known in the venacular as "Gout weed". This reduces the inflamation, and starts decrystalising the sinovial fluid.
But that is the after care. Not the initial.
In Holland, the doctor can prescribe canabis. This does not reduce the swelling. But the inflamation and pain goes away.
The annoying thing is, it is legal to dose someone up with 150mil pure morphine, but they are not allowed to give me an eighth ounce of hash. Which has the same effect on the gout.
Which would YOU pick?
