See neurologist : If the symptoms are new or if you are getting worse, you must be seen and evaluated by neurologists asap to rule out if you have any new onset problems in the brain. You will need a neurological work-up and imaging studies of the brain.

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.
