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.
  • Is sciatica and macrobid induced muscle and joint pain reversible?

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • I am currently experiencing constant muscle contractions in my abdomen and jerking movements in my neck and midsection. My neck will pull back by itself... Or while I'm standing I'll involuntarily bend over. I'm also having balance issues. I feel very unstable walking and am experiencing some tremors.
