I live in LA, CA (land of legal marijuana!), but am from Maryland. I have tingling along the face and tongue on the AN side. Before diagnosis, I thought my TMJ was getting worse! No such luck ;-). Anyway based on what you describe experiencing, my issues are not as severe. That said, when I got diagnosed I couldn't stay asleep, and it was making everything worse - including the trigeminal nerve issues. Anyway, I ended up going to a dispensary for CBD tincture (I don't smoke , and have never smoked pot, if you can believe it). It worked a treat! I have never had problems falling asleep, but the staying asleep had become an issue because of anxiety. That went away straight away, and my facial tingling abated. I had CK in April, and have been taking tincture since March. After CK my tingling reduced, but I believe the CBD to have played a huge hand in that. CBD tincture has been used for people with traumatic brain injuries, and a dear friend with MS takes it for neurologic issues - it helped her a lot. I have read that it does not help everyone - I recently read an article in The Washington Post
about a boy who took an experimental CBD medication for seizures and who had excellent results, but that not everyone has the same result. That said, the CBD certainly can't hurt! Most CBD tinctures have trace amounts of THC, which I understand helps them be effective. However, it does not impair or make you high at all
. I certainly have not had any kind of weird experiences! Just be forewarned - the tincture tastes like the water that collects in a lawnmower bag. I take it, leave it under my tongue as long as I can stand, and then eat a starburst or something to kill the taste.
