- 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.
(Asked by a 63 year old man who has Glaucoma Congenital, and takes Marijuana, Latanoprost)
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?

I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

- Can excessive consumption of marijuana cause sudden sleeping phobia which lasts longer (in days) ?
(Asked by a 25 year old man who has Sleep Disorder, and takes Alcohol, Marijuana)
I have been taking marijuana since 2 years and sleep a lot. I always had sleeping disorder like, If someone is doing anything in my room, I can't sleep. I always think of something before sleeping and then I will have some random dream and sleep long if undisturbed. If someone wakes me up in the middle it takes time to go to sleep again. Generally I sleep around 2 AM and wake up at 12 PM. Four days ago I took marijuana for about 4 or five hours while watching movies (which I do very regularly) and went to bed. At 2:30 AM I felt kind of going in to darkness and highly afraid of the darkness, My heart rate was 142 and I was so afraid that I couldn't control my mind and got admitted to nearest hospital in ICU. They gave me sleeping pills and some drips (sodium chloride and some other injections). My blood report showed normal except 22.5 WBC which should be between 6 to 9. I didn't tell them that I have been smoking marijuana since I am a PhD student in my institute and they will simply throw me out if I do. Since that night I couldn't sleep without sleeping pills and whenever I try to, I feel the same terror and my heart bit starts increasing. During day time I feel highly anxious and uncomfortable. I want my old life back and I haven't smoked marijuana since that day and I promise not to. Please help me or I feel some night I will die while sleeping.

- Pulmonary arterial hypertension and marijuana
(Posted by a 54 year old man who has Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, Tumor - Adrenal, and takes 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)
(Posted by a 51 year old man who has Pruritus Ani, and takes Marijuana)

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.
- I.c.d. and marijuana use
(Posted by a 46 year old man who has Congestive Heart Failure, and takes Marijuana)
I suffered a massive myocardial infarction. 2 weeks after went into cardiac arrest, I had an I.C.D.implanted. I currently am on 6 different medications. My anxiety level and depression was ridiculous. Unable to sleep, and function socially, I self medicated myself with Marijuana. For about an 8 week period, I checked my blood pressure and pulse/ox before and after use. There was little to no change in my numbers, and am able to lead a fairly normal life now. Able to sleep, eat, and depression gone. I am 46 years old with no history of any medical conditions before my heart attack, 3 small children, and lead a happy life, considering the circumstances. Everything I have read is against this activity, and am just wondering if anybody has similar experience?
- Marijuana is found to help hyposmia
(Posted by a 28 year old woman who has Hyposmia, and takes Marijuana)
For a woman who remembers being unable to tell what was cooking in her elementary school cafeteria before she actually entered it while her classmates, on the other hand, were, I have found that marijuana improves the sense of smell. While marijuana heightens the senses in general, touch, taste, sight and hearing, smell is one of the senses which has always been significantly impaired for me. The ability to smell some things usually affects in a negative way. When I am able to smell without having used marijuana, and its is often a bit random, I mostly smell bad odors, and food, not usually sweet ones or fresh ones. Although I recognize some of the smells are bad, I am still proud of having even the ability to smell them as distinguished smells. Marijuana, makes me smell bad things. Marijuana also makes me smell strooong bad things and more often.
Also, I have a hypothesis that some forms of hyposmia are informed psychoologically.
- Idiopathic insomnolence (1 response)
(Posted by a 44 year old man who has Insomnolence, Narcolepsy, Iga Nephropathy, Neuropathy Peripheral, and takes Modafinil)
In 1997 I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy with an intolerance to Dexamp(hetamine) tablets.
After 3 years of nose operations, and sleep tests to remove other potential issues (lung problems or apnoea) I have finally been re-diagnosed (2013) with idiopathic insomnolence.
Modaphinil caused a reaction of insane nausea, pains behind the eyes, dizzy spells, with no real change in blood pressure.
Dexamphetamine was erratic (on recent retrial) with extremes causing dizzy spells and slow progressive drop in BP over 3 weeks from average 125/75 to 105/60. Occasionally it would wake my body up but my brain would be slow to follow, and the conflict would take me to the cleaners for the next two days.
I was diagnosed with IgAN in 2004, and have progressive idiopathic neuropathy in my feet since 2011.
The sleep specialist wants me to try Klacid (clarithromycin) as it has reportedly caused insomnia on a regular basis. I've not yet agreed.
That's me in a nutshell.
To many idiopathics and drug rejections.
Somebody has not got their finger on the pulse, but no idea who yet.
Jus thought I'd throw this out there in case anyone else is having difficulties aswell.
