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.
