I’m from a family of people with a wide variety of health concerns.
My mother for instance has Crohn’s Disease while her father had multiple sclerosis.
Both of them struggled with chronic pain and drastic attacks from the disorders throughout their lifetimes, although our mother is still around and suffering from Crohn’s. My father’s side of the family is full of mental health concerns, heart conditions, and kidney disease. Unluckyly, the kidney concerns are fairly severe. My father has spongy kidney disease and so does our sister. They both get at least 1 kidney stone per month depending on other factors that increase or decrease the likelihood of their perpetual kidney gravel to develop into stones big enough to cause painful blockages. You could gamble with using opiates to treat kidney pain, however they both have opted for other solutions. Aside from traditional cannabis products with high THC, our sister and our dad also treat their kidney pain with CBD products. They vaporize CBD concentrates and have amazing results instantly as the CBD immediately starts to kick in and take effect. I’m not sure if I have spongy kidney disease or not, but I still get kidney pain constantly and I often have gravel in our kidneys as well. I have had to go to the hospital three times in the last 10 years over having kidney stones each time. The last time I went they absolutely had to do surgery with the lazer. I was sore for multiple afternoons because of the sheer tenderness after the blunt force impact.
