Seek attention: At a minimum you should have an exam and probably a chest xray to evaluate your symptoms. Depending on the type of paint you were using, there can be an acute lung injury.

What to do if I have a lung disease, can I smoke weed?

What to do if I have a lung disease, can I smoke weed?

You're kidding right: Since smoking weed uses fragile lung tissues to let the drug enter your bloodstream, any use can aggravate your lung disease. As a student, I recall meeting a former miss texas who was dying of advanced lung disease at 35, she had advanced lung disease but liked to smoke. She looked 80.

Why do I get a burning sensation in my penis when I smoke weed? I think I have epididymitis. ..

Why do I get a burning sensation in my penis when I smoke weed? I think I have epididymitis. ..

Burning sensation: burning sensation when urinating may be a sign of urinary tract infection, but I am not sure that marijuana can cause this sensation. Epididymitis is an infection/inflammation of the coiled tube that is behind the testicles, this infection is usually due to chlamydia/gonorrhea and antibiotics such doxycycline 100mg twice daily plus ceftriaxone 250 mg once is needed to treat it

If I smoke weed through my nose can I still get a dry socket? Will I know if I have/am going to have one? It's been 72 hours after surgery. 4 pulled

If I smoke weed through my nose can I still get a dry socket? Will I know if I have/am going to have one? It's been 72 hours after surgery. 4 pulled

Probably Not: Wow. .. you're pretty serious about smoking weed if you are willing to both inhale and exhale smoke only through your nose rather than just wait a week or two. It's not clear to me whether its something specific about cigarette smoke or any smoke that increases your risk for "dry socket". Talk to your oral surgeon about it. BTW Smoking is an unhealthy delivery method for any drug.

I smoke weed but I experience panic attacks as side effect so I thought I could try to take a 0.25mg Xanax (alprazolam) before smoking. Is that safe?

I smoke weed but I experience panic attacks as side effect so I thought I could try to take a 0.25mg Xanax (alprazolam) before smoking. Is that safe?

Sort of but...: This is safe from the perspective that there is no direct interaction between cannabis ; xanax (alprazolam), (alprazolam) but xanax (alprazolam) has a long list of potential side effects ; can be habit-forming (i feel cannabis is actually a far safer medicine!). Consider natural anti-anxiety agents such as l-theanine, holy basil, 5-htp, passionflower, skullcap or valerian. One or more of these may work as well as xanax (alprazolam). See comment:.

I had a stroke due to an avm rupture three years ago which left me with left hemiplegia and left hemianopsia. I smoke weed, is this bad for me?

Limited data: There is limited and conflicting data regarding marijuana use and stroke recovery. Some studies suggest there may be a benefit, while others show no such relationship. Hence, there are no definitive recommendations that can be made. However, there are data regarding the effects of smoking, which is quite clear - smoking is bad for you. That much is clear.

I smoke weed to help with anxiety and insomnia for over 6 years. I want to quit but not get addicted to sleeping pills. How does it affect fertility?

I smoke weed to help with anxiety and insomnia for over 6 years. I want to quit but not get addicted to sleeping pills. How does it affect fertility?

Probably not good: Unlike cigarette smoking, there is little scientific evidence about the effects on female fertility. In men it lowers testosterone and does reduce sperm quality. We don't know if a women smoking weed also affects sperm in her body. It may affect female hormones and ovulation. Our bodies make cannabis-like chemicals (endocannabinoids) and we are finding out what they do for fertility. Best to quit.

I had a panic attack in october 2012 but now everytime I smoke weed I get this funny feeling in my throat like my throat is closing up why is that?

I had a panic attack in october 2012 but now everytime I smoke weed I get this funny feeling in my throat like my throat is closing up why is that?

A few possibilities: 1. You may be allergic to something in the smoke. Severe allergic reactions include throat swelling & tightness, & in severe cases can be life-threatening. 2. This may be an asthmatic reaction, with reactive constriction of your airway. Also potentially life-threatening. 3. It may be a psychological reaction, related to your panic attack or not. If any of these, why keep smoking?
