- Is sciatica and macrobid induced muscle and joint pain reversible?
Was prescribed Macrobid twice in one month for Bladder infection. Experienced severe joint and muscle pain during the seven days I was taking it. That was back in September, 2014. It is now mid-December. Is this condition reversible?
- Can marijuana be causing serious, long-term muscle weakness?
I'm almost 65 years old, am a successful, well adjusted professional and have used marijuana on and off for over 45 years. I began using it more heavily about five years ago. Beginning about four years ago I began experiencing serious muscle weakness, in the large muscles. I was a skier, hiker, swimmer, runner... and can't do any of that now. I'm good for only about 5-7 stairs before I have to stop and regroup. I want my life back! If its possible that using weed is the problem, I can walk away from it at any time. It's a helpful part of my meditation practice, and I like it, but as I noted...I want my life back.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? I've had my heart and lungs checked. I don't have Lyme's disease, I'm not overweight and was in GREAT shape for my age until this hit. Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.
