I have DMD type 2 and pain in the hips/legs can be severe. There are only two treatments that seem to work for me… Codeine and, even better is marijuana. Here in Colorado medical marijuana is legal and you can get marijuana high in CBD’s and low in THC so no “high” feeling. On a scale of 1-10, Codeine provides about a 6 and marijuana high in CBD’s is a 9. Extremely effective and only makes you mildly sleepy and very minimal cognitive effects. In my experience, smoking is more effective than CBD patches, lotions or edibles. Hope it helps and if it’s available to you it’s worth a try.
