  • I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
    I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
  • Are there any interactions between abraxane (used in a chemotherapeutic treatment) and therapeutic cannabis?

My mother weighs only 19.5 pounds (43 kg) for 4'6" (149-150 cm). She will be chemotherapeutic treatment with Abraxane. I want to give her therapeutic cannabis, but I don't know if there are interactions between cannabis and Abraxane, or between cannabis and other components of chemotherapy. Someone can help me, please?

  • Marijuana - legalization will relieve suffering
    There is no single patient in this review. I have been an RN for over 3 decades and have cared for folks with a wide variety of symptoms who may have benefited from prescribed doses of marijuana (MJ). But sadly our elected officials, not medical professionals, are still deciding whether patients receive adequate pain relief. The following points are just food for thought:

    1. What is MJ's addiction potential? Well, let me confess; as a college student in the 70s I DID inhale (unlike Bill Clinton :D ) and I also snarfed down magic brownies. I wasn't that impressed with recreational use - it made me paranoid - but I'm still in contact with old friends who really enjoyed MJ. None of them continued to use after our college years. I know it's not exactly a double blind study!
    2. Smoking joints; will lead to lung disease. Probably but not to the extent that tobacco will. I found baking MJ in a little treat made it mellower and longer acting. Eating MJ may not be possible for those with nausea from chemotherapy since it's not very tasty. Smoking just part of a joint will increase the appetite making everything taste REALLY GOOD! Munchies are a must for those suffering from malnutrition!
    3. It seems that freshmen legislators are required to watch that old classic film "Reefer Madness". I can think of no other plausible reason to deny patients access to an FDA regulated and federally taxed medication. Unless it's election time and poorly informed constituents are hysterically hounded their representatives. These are the same people who believe that ONLY patients with endstage CANCER should have access to opioid analgesics (in Florida!). All other suffering people have to sign a 5 page "contract" that negates their patient privacy rights.
  • 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

  • Numbness and tingling in legs and feet from zyvox
    I had a staph infection 10 years ago and was hospitalized for 6 weeks. While in the hospital I was given several antibiotics intravenously, and eventually was given Zyvox. When I was released the Dr. prescribed Zyvox, and I continued to take it for about 6 months. One morning I woke up and my feet and legs were numb and tingling. I stopped taking it immediately and told my doctor. She agreed that I should have stopped taking it, and that was the last that we talked about it. I had to stop seeing the doctor because I didn't have insurance, and still don't. That was about 10 years ago!! I still have numbness and tingling in my legs and feet!!! I'm assuming it is permanent. Is there anything I can do??

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • I have notice a tingling in the tip of my tongue as well as my right arm has fallen asleep multiple times. I have also noticed the upper left area above my heart has had sharp pains occasionally. I also recently went to the doctor for a sexual health related issue which ended up being a urinary tract infection.

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I think it occured after I was prescribed methlypred, to clear up my chest after a virus. I think the pred interacted with the vyvanse, because i have taken pred on the antidepressant and it didnt cause the numbness.
