Yes: Smoking marijuana can cause unusual gastrointestinal symptoms including what some would consider to be abdominal migraines. If you notice this specifically after smoking marijuana, and it subsides, it could be that. However, if you have it other times, or if you have progressive abdominal pain with any systemic changes, you would need to consider being seen by a physician. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Preventive meds: The best treatment for migraine is 1)finding out if there are foods or other environmental factors causing them and avoiding those things and 2) medications that prevent (not treat) migraine like verapamil, beta blockers or low-dose tricyclic antidepressants. Best treatment is with triptans. Some of my patients have gotten benefit from 'medical' mj, but most have not. Plus- unknown purity&smoked. ...Read more

If it is your prescribed medication for migraines (provided such indication existed.) your should consult your dr and check consistency/safety of the medical/controlled marijuana you use.

Modify diet, meds: Don't smoke marijuana. Drink water throughout your meals. Sometimes eating smaller meals of soft, low fiber and low fat foods can help. You can try mild exercise after eating. You may need a medicine like Reglan (metoclopramide) to help stimulate stomach contractions. If the gastroparesis is severe, then you may need to have a feeding tube to your intestine or electric gastric stimulator implanted. ...Read more
Very variable: Many people don't experience ANY psychoactive effects the first few times they may smoke marijuana, whereas others get extremely anxious to the point of panic attacks. The effects in teen-agers and young adults are different than those in adults, and I strongly discourage any use by younger people. It can reduce IQ, impair learning, promote psychotic events and literally damage younger brains. ...Read more
Brain function: MJ: Marijuana chronic used can cause some changes in cognition. The literature on this point is mixed and the use has to be frequent and heavy dose. It is psychologically addictive and unfortunately is illegal so you are in technical trouble obtaining it. Current supplies are very potent and you should monitor your response carefully and see if you can get off of it. ...Read more
I had a seizuire in october, now one yesturday. I was wondering if it is possible marijuana caused it, though I don't smoke everyday just here and there?
Doubtful: I have never seen a relationship between cannibas and seizure risk. Doesn't mean it couldn't occur but but would have to be in close proximity to the event. Get on some seizure meds for god sake if u have not yet. Topimax is a good one in that it appears to have an effect on reward systems like food consumption and alcohol intake; Lamotrigine is easily tolerated and can be good for mood, good lu. ...Read more

Not known yet: Marijuana does affect the intestinal tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. It is uncertain if marijuana worsens gastroesophageal reflux (the cause of heartburn and Barrett's esophagus changes), improves GE reflux, or has no effect on reflux. Those who like marijuana say that marijuana improves reflux symptoms, but there is not good research evidence to back up their claims. ...Read more
Mostly the marijuana: Cannabis is a psychoactive drug, and many people, especially those with underlying anxiety, social phobias and other problems may have a bad response to using it. Some people have panic attacks precipitated, and some people literally have "bad trips" with hallucinations, delusions, paranoia etc. Sometimes it is also cut with other drugs, including angel dust (PCP or phencyclidine) or synthetics. ...Read more
No: They are separate tests.Get a more detailed answer ›
Age, strain, genetics: Marijuana is hazardous for young people- regular users will have lower iq til about age 17. Some people become very anxious from it- this is related to your genetics/constitution but can also be influenced by the strain as diff. Strains have varying ratios of thc, cbd etc, thus some are more calming ; agitating. Like all medicines, what helps some can harm others ; it is not for everybody! ...Read more
Polycythemia: Smoking anything deprives the body of oxygen and stimulates production of more red cells in compensation. Your doctor can order a carboxyhemoglobin level to see if this is an issue for you. There are numerous other causes of polycythemia: sleep apnea, benign and malignant tumors, and a bone marrow condition known as polycythemia vera. A high red cell count should be evaluated by a hematologist. ...Read more
Much safer but...: Tobacco use dramatically increases risk of many cancers, heart disease, strokes & chronic lung disease. Marijuana hasn't been proven to increase risk of these (except regular use can increase lung disease) & in general is far safer than tobacco. However, regular use before age 18 is associated with long-term lowered IQ so I advise extreme caution re: use in adolescence. See http://bit. Ly/STxBwe ...Read more
May be anti-aging if:
There is evidence that marijuana can have powerful anti-aging properties, esp, for the brain but also the skin, but many of those benefits might be counteracted by smoking it. Using it in oral preparations or via vaporizer will maximize its anti-aging benefits while minimizing toxins from burning it. See http://tinyurl. Com/nnn2nv9

Is marijuana harmful or healthy? Does it effect memory? Does it causes impotency? How it can be taken for a good and healthy living?
Depends: This depends on why you are taking it and how you are using it. There are some benefits for cancer pain, other medicinal uses. However, for most of us it is not a good idea. Yes, it can affect your memory. Yes it can cause impotency. Marijuana is not a component of a "good and healthy life" whatsoever. Other psychiatric effects are noted here http://bjp. Rcpsych.

Quit, at least 4 now: You don't mention all your neuro symptoms, but if they are a concern, you need to get into treatment for them. For the immediate time, don't use marijuana. You may know the joke. Guy tells doc "it hurst when I ____" doc says "don't do it! " anyway, until it is legal, it's not. Hopefully it will be available for those who do well with it, but you don't and it's not. See a doctor for your symptoms. ...Read more
