Many plant cuttings started dying very fast due to fungus gnat infestation. After handling thousands of dead dying and rotting plants in late June i accumulated several small sores that appeared to be staphylococci. Treated for mrsa with pills and topical cream. Was also having urinary track infection symptoms as well as irritated hemroidal rectum. Suggested Epsom salt baths and drink for detox and stool loosening. Within 1 hour suffered from magnesium sulfate toxicity. ER treated with munopriocin and ciproflaxin antibiotics @15,000 milligrams. Finger check in anus for prostate problems. Hurt very bad and finger was not in anus more than 1 inch. 3 days later staff symptoms were back and more aggressive. This time traveling my lympnatic track

- Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Pulmonary arterial hypertension and marijuana
Marijuana does not cause Pulmonary arterial hypertension, instead it treats it. This study proves that the indigenous cannabinoid, anandamide, lowered aldosterone levels, and therefore would lower blood pressure (http://www.odon.uba.ar/uacad/fisiologia/docs/nuevos/expression.pdf).
For more than 15 years, no blood pressure medications would keep my blood pressure down. I would be on two medications, yet hospitalized with a pressure of 200/130 when I stopped treating my illness with cannabis. Now, I am on no blood pressure meds, and keep my pressure down around 130/78. I would have had a stroke years ago without it.
- Pruritus ani. and marijuana (1 response)
i just got popped for smoking weed on a drug test 2 weeks ago. OF COURSE i was crushed by this news,BUT,i think not smoking the last 2 weeks has CURED my pruritus ani. I suffered and i mean suffered with this the last 2 years and tried giving up everything i thought might have caused this. Certain foods,beer,diet soda to no prevail. I havent felt this good down there in over 3 years!!!! If i knew that was what was causing this,i would of quit years ago and never got popped in the first place!!!! And yes,i would rather give up smoking weed then feel what i felt the last few years.

There is medical grade marijuana which gets rid of anxiety attacks, if that is one of your symptoms. Different strains have different effects. I recommend finding the strain that has the features you need for your particular MS symptoms. Ask your Medical Marijuana Provider, about the different strains, which ones do what. You are the only one who knows exactly what you go through in a day, it's your responsibility (while you are still all there), to take an active role in your care.
I have come to the conclusion that PPMS is a "just deal with it" disease, Medical Marijuana helps me get through my day. Without it, the pain, anxiety attacks, swollen hands and feet, tingling from head to toe, would drive me nuts.
Glynn on Nov, 10, 2014:
I too experienced panic attacks from weed when i first started smoking. I guess this is because your body is becoming familiar with THC reaction. Also cannabis has a tendency to amplify a lot of things that you're thinking mentally. If you mentally are freaking out or paranoid getting really high would just increase this. Setting is everything.
I would suggest that you go to a nice quiet place, maybe outside somewhere that you can smoke cannabis without others being nosy. You should start off by using mid-grade weed, which is normally around regular price. Build up a tolerance to mid-grade then move to the medical grade. If you have little tolerance to weed and go straight for medical, it will likely cause a panic attack. I'm an everyday smoker, and there is medical strains that knock me out so i could only imagine the effects of a frequent smoker.
In due time you will be able to smoke without feeling anxiety, paranoia and panic attacks. You will start to feel and accept the lovely vibrations of the wonderful cannabis plant and most importantly...it will stop your seizures. I had a friend who had epilepsy and once he became a daily smoker the seizures vanished. Until this day he has not had one in over 3 years since he started smoking regular.
People can say what they want about cannabis. But it is TRULY a miracle drug. It can help ween you off hardcore narcotic addictions and help you with various health problems that prescription meds either worsen or just temporarily moderate the symptoms.
