I tried marijuana, and it did not help my symptoms. Does that mean medical marijuana won't work?

No.  There are many different strains and distinct concentrations of different active ingredients in cannabis.  Just because one strain didn’t work does not mean another won’t provide symptomatic relief.  Sometimes it is about finding the right CBD/THC conentration or strain of medical marijuana.  

Will medical marijuana definitely alleviate my symptoms?

No.  Medical marijuana does not work for everyone and does not work for any condition.  Everyone reacts to medical marijuana in their own way.  There is no guarantee that it will provide you with relief and many people do not benefit from medical marijuana.
