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.

Anyway, the treatment with Trental and vitamin E was carried on. April 25 –June 3 2013 Start taking Sorenfenib 600mg . Then a rapid downhill course of the disease with pretty severe adverse effect such as weakness, back pain, chest tightness and foot pain. Then stopped Sorenfenib. Finally he was admitted to hospital because of intractable pain and shortness of breath. Ultimately admitted to ICU, with tracheostomy, artificial ventilation and long term iv sedation. Tomotherapy continued.

    Worsening condition despite treatment. But relative insisted on as active treatment as possible.
