    Yes, I have all these issues. It makes life real tough, I haven't had dreams in over a year. I have to wear a morphine patch for the nerve pain caused by the phantom limb, it feels like my fingers are being twisted(which aren't there anymore) quite a bit of the time, hurts like hell, but not all the time. The doctors don't seem to be able to help me much. I am experimenting now with OG kush and blue dream. Any recommendations that might help me with this hell I am in, would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    phantom limb pain = nothing to say other than sorry, that sucks! hope over time, your body adjusts to the loss of the limb as far as the pain goes. just a thought but have you considered lowering your morphine dose as you start to smoke? the brain does perceive pain differently when on a strong narcotic.

    as far as your other symptoms, it sounds like a triple whammy! you must be freaky tired all the time. my husband is suffering from sleep apnea and he is fighting going to the doctor for it - it is a terrible thing to be exhausted. kush is probably your best bet to help with insomnia but since you also have narcolepsy it might not be something you could smoke during the day. do you have a mask at night? smoking then would probably help you sleep. good luck dude. bongsmilie
