    Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!

  • Weed and focalin xr combined experience
    I took a focalin xr 30mg at 8:00 in the morning during school. At break at 11:00 I smoked about 3 bowls of Girl Scout, which is a sativa. I have a huge tolerance to weed because I smoke twice a day. It was enough weed to get me kinda high, but since I was going back to school I didn't want to be trashed. When the two combined I was super hyper and couldn't really feel the weed but it generally takes about 15 minutes for me to feel the weed, and so by the time I get back to school I'm feeling it a little more. When I got back to school I was feeling a insane body high and some lightheadedness. It was a pretty awesome feeling since I could still feel the focalin in my system. This was my first time taking focalin but a week ago I took vyvanse 60 mg and have tried adderall a couple times prior, vyvanse is definitely my favorite though. The feeling peaked for about an hour and half, but once the weed high wore off I was strictly feeling the focalin only. My pupils were super tiny but a week before when I took a vyvanse my pupils were dilated the entire time. My eyes didn't change color though from the weed which might have to do with my tolerance they simply become very glassy. I felt very jittery throughout the day although and my mind was whirling after the weed which I thought would have the opposite effect, and I continued to be hyper until 10ish that night. I also felt very nauseous most the day because I didn't eat much before taking the focalin in the morning, and no urge to eat anything through the day until I smoked where I became mildly hungry. During the peak of the high Imy hands and feet also became fairly numb with a tingling sensation different than when there isn't enough blood reaching it. I wouldn't recommend this if you get bad trips . Although it's not a trippy or particularly hard drug, friends that have tried this have experienced paranoia and aggression.i If you have a little self control and are seeking a different experience than your regular weed high I would say give it a try, just maybe not at school or when you want to study. I'm not very experienced with stimulant pills and this may affect you differently, I don't know this is just my personal experience and I hope this helps
  • Good effect of marijunana for hematuria
    i had hematuria sence 3 years,i had done lots of tests like radiology,cystoscopy,kidney biopsy and many more,but all reports were normal,so after that i started a new type of thearpy that was HOMEOPATHY.but there was no results,but suddenly in party i has smoked weed sence that time there was no blood in my urine,marijuana was a very big medicine for me.and now i dont have any problem again in my urine,5 months had happend but still now no blood
  • 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.

    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.

    This Study,

    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.
