It is also called complex regional pain syndrome, " "the shoulder-hand syndrome, " "causalgia, " and "sudeck's atrophy. An experienced neurologist may be able to help decrease the severity of the symptoms.

Bakers nightmare: Obviously you followed a betty crocker recipe. Your reward for having done so is to have urine metabolites of marijuana hanging around in your body for anywhere from days to weeks depending upon the dose consumed. I highly recommend that you change bakers. The one you are currently using can be extremely dangerous to your mental health in particular. Best wishes.

Seizures: Ask the doctors who treated you overnight what was the cause of the seizures. One of my patients became dehydrated and had electrolyte imbalance low potassium and had a seizure. Another patient had a problem with the electrical system in the brain and had seizures. You need to find out more details.
