Morgan Freeman

You would never know by watching his blockbuster films that Freeman has fibromyalgia. Not only does he speak out for the disease, he also gives hope and encouragement to other fibromyalgia patients. The cause of his fibromyalgia could have been from a car accident that paralyzed his left hand, causing possible nerve damage. Freeman described the pain in his entire arm as excruciating.

Freeman says the only thing that relieves the pain is medical marijuana. Medicated adhesive patches will be available that administer cannabis through the patient's bloodstream in an effort to relieve fibromyalgia pain. CBD has been proven to relieve fibro pain in some people, so this method of treatment could be revolutionary. Maybe Morgan Freeman would use them too!
