  • Can excessive consumption of marijuana cause sudden sleeping phobia which lasts longer (in days) ?
    I have been taking marijuana since 2 years and sleep a lot. I always had sleeping disorder like, If someone is doing anything in my room, I can't sleep. I always think of something before sleeping and then I will have some random dream and sleep long if undisturbed. If someone wakes me up in the middle it takes time to go to sleep again. Generally I sleep around 2 AM and wake up at 12 PM. Four days ago I took marijuana for about 4 or five hours while watching movies (which I do very regularly) and went to bed. At 2:30 AM I felt kind of going in to darkness and highly afraid of the darkness, My heart rate was 142 and I was so afraid that I couldn't control my mind and got admitted to nearest hospital in ICU. They gave me sleeping pills and some drips (sodium chloride and some other injections). My blood report showed normal except 22.5 WBC which should be between 6 to 9. I didn't tell them that I have been smoking marijuana since I am a PhD student in my institute and they will simply throw me out if I do. Since that night I couldn't sleep without sleeping pills and whenever I try to, I feel the same terror and my heart bit starts increasing. During day time I feel highly anxious and uncomfortable. I want my old life back and I haven't smoked marijuana since that day and I promise not to. Please help me or I feel some night I will die while sleeping.

  • Can i connect by email with other patients that have hypoglycemia and stevens-johnson syndrome? (1 answer)
    I have had hypoglycemia since childhood, and I have managed it easily until just this weekend. I got S-J two years ago from Bactrim. As I have healed from S-J very slowly and painfully, I was exercising hard, and working hard and slipped a little on not eating enough protein. I started dropping into sugar blackouts and it scared the crap out of me! Still working at being able to eat enough to straighten out low sugar levels. Any suggestions helpful, Thanks, Leann

  • I gave up alcohol 4 years ago..ever since i have had pmle really badly. any chance there is a link?
    I was a heavy drinker of alcohol and have travelled the world for years without suffering from PMLE. I am 43, 4 years ago I gave up alcohol. I have not drunk one drop of alcohol since. On my first foreign trip after quitting drink I suffered a severe bout of PMLE after being in the sun. I had never ever experienced it before. I have lived in sunny tropical areas and never even used to burn. I have dark irish white skin. Is there any correlation? Think I may start drinking again it is a debilitating condition, I am a location photographer and want to put this idea in the mix?..can anyone find a study, correlation? Kind regards. Patrick

  • Can facial tics be caused by alcoholism
    My hubby will not admit he is a binge drinker and claims his facial tics have nothing to do with alcohol! He jerks his head back all the time and stuck his tongue out at one point or time like a snake and stomps his one foot while they are crossed on the ground. and constantly scrunches his nose up and raises his eyebrows a lot as well. He has had more symptoms in the past but i do not have much time to explain. he was hospitalized for liver damage and he will not change for anybody! He told me he was going to stick to two beers a day when he got out of hospital and of course he has not! He has also been hospitalized for pancretititis and refuses to quit. He drinks from the time he gets up at 4 in the morning or later and drinks and then takes naps during the day and claims he does not get sleep. I am almost getting ready to crack and dont know what to do! I want to leave him but on the other hand i want to be supportive but i cannot help someone who does not want to help hisself!
