Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can eating cannabis edibles cause a-flutter and a shigella infection?
It turned out to be food poisoning and I spent 10 nights in the hospital - 2 in the ICU. Is it possible that eating a cannabis edible caused the food poisoning and the A-Fib/flutter? They were going to do a spinal tap because of the headache thinking I might have meningitis. I'm confused at what really happened and why I got so sick. They put me in the ICU when my blood pressure dropped to 70/40. I guess I want to know if the cannabis could cause my shigella bacterial infection or if that was different from my heart issues.

85 year old mom was given zoloft 4 weeks after hip replacement due to a fall. Prior to zoloft she was recovering great. Since zoloft her weakness has steadily gotten worst to now not being able to walk. Ataxia symptoms. Dr wants to wean off zoloft.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
The drugs came only after the symptoms. I will lose nuvigil next month as insurance companies won't cover and apparently there are no alternatives. (Adderal but doc won't write that script for some reason which would save me $500 and help with concentration!!) I had a stressful event that caused (I believe) the Sleeplessness, depression, almost felt like a nervous breakdown. Pain in legs and back. The worst part are the chills/sweats accompanied by akathisia during the sleepless nights.
