Medical Cannabis

I am a 17 yr old male. I routinely experience nausea (I think it is possibly stress related). This is accompanied by headaches and stomaches and a great loss in appetite. It seems to happen around 2-3 times a year and has happened every year since 8th grade (I am now a senior in highschool). It puts me in great discomfort and I end up missing school and have trouble catching up. I have visited doctors for this a few times and they generally tell me to rest and take tylenol or ibuprofen. I would like to explore the possibility of using cannabis to treat this. I have done some research online and think this could possibly be the right choice. I think my parents would discourage me and I do not feel comfortable discussing this with them. I am turning 18 in a month and now that I am going to be an adult I think that I could talk to a doctor about this on my own. I am not sure how to approach the doctor and I feel very nervous about possibly talking to a doctor about this. I don't know how to approach this subject, should I discuss my limited experiences with cannabis (I have only smoked twice, with a friend) or not. I really think this could be the right decision but I don't know how to go about it. I would greatly appreciate any advice. (FYI: I am a senior in highschool, I live in michigan, turning 18 in a month which is when I plan to talk to a doctor about this).
