Nutmeg for Broken Leg

I broke my fibia (calf bone, the smaller bone in your lower leg behind your shin bone), when I fell off my mountain bike. I managed to ride/limp home and then sent my flat mate out to buy strong (8%) cider to kill the pain. A couple of litres of this did not work, but by the time I'd drank that the offy was shut so I couldn't get any more.

I had no weed in, but eventually I remembered some nutmeg that I'd bought for a 'drug experiment' several months earlier. I decided to eat the nutmeg in the hope that it would stop my leg from hurting.

I'd tried nutmeg once before, together with my flatmate, eating 6 cloves, raw, grated, and found the experience similar to when I'd first smoked cannibis, ie. a bit giggly and then getting the munchies, then sleeping a hell of a lot, although it lasted for 2 days and then the come down was very similar to ecstasy and lasted for 1 or 2 days.

In the meantime I had roasted the nutmeg together with a roast dinner but then left it uneaten for 3 or 4 months. In this form I found it far easier to eat (whole, ie. ungrated) although that might have been because I was drunk. It was, however, just as psychoactive.

In short, it seemed to be effective as a painkiller, or at least a pain ignorer, in much the same way as cannabis was, once I eventually got hold of some, lasting for about 2 and a half days. I did remain drunk for most of my waking hours (spending alot of time asleep or half asleep), whilst stoned on the nutmeg, but I don't think that my drinking affected it.

I didn't notice a comedown this time but that might have been because the sense of pain overwhelmed it, or because the gin drinking drunkeness did.

In conclusion, nutmeg works quite well as a painkiller, lying around, too stoned to do anything for a couple of days, but marijuana is probably a better bet, or going to the doctor.
