1 1/2 years ago i had a stomach bleed. Hemroids. Alchoholism. Recreatoinal drugs. Recently i have been working in horse barns chicken coops and an organic marijuana farm. 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
Ulcerated lesions behind both ears chest shoulder neck forehead forearms . Lesions come fast and leave very slowly. They tingle itch swell And leak off and on thruout the day. Scarringvery badly. 8 months And still happening. No alcohol for 6 + months. Doctors will not take very gross samples from me and their biopsies keep turning up negative for bacteria and fungal. What is this?
- If i am allergic to sulfa drugs may i take lomotil?
Imodium no longer has much affect on my diarrhea. Looking for something more.
- I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
- Could smoking marijuana once cause retinal detachment? after smoking a small amount of mj, my retina detached and i ended up having emergency surgery to mend it.
I had had laser surgery, cataract surgery much earlier--all successful. Members of my family have glaucoma and so do I. After hearing that marijuana might ease the glaucoma, I smoked one time. That night, my retina began to detach. Is there any causal relationship between the marijuana and the retinal detachment?

- 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
- Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- 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.

From this study (6 months ago):
Im having a severe Diarrhea and frequent bowel movement. I was told by the Dr that it might be IBS. but i figured out with time that just when i dont Smoke Marijuana i get Bowel movement and as long as im smoking in it im fine.
So i came up with it might be result of excessive smoking throught the 2 years that i been on MJ, I want to quit i just want to know if there is anything that can help my bowel movement during the time im quitting smoking .

Cannabis Extracts are healing several medical conditions such as diabetes, IBS, inoperable brain cancers, prostate cancers, lung cancers, etc. If you are worried about "craving" Cannabis, don't worry, we are ALL born with an ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM. Only purpose is to process cannabinoids, which our bodies actually produce in small quantities. Breast milk contains cannabinoids as well, so we are not only born with a system to receive them, our mother's are providing it to us from birth. All facts, you can Google it all. I host a Facebook group called Cannabis Oil Sucess Stories and we are over 14,000 members, largest in the world.
Ask or research, the facts are the facts. Thanks for permitting me to inform!
