Hi everyone..
Ok basically im a 18 yr old male..
My summer holidays..i drank alot of alcohol..not much sleep, also smoked hash nearly every day.and cigarettes..
I came back to england, was fine..started relaxing again, then about a month goes by and i felt chest pains..i went to my doctor it was only stomach acid, so i was very relieved..(im a very panicky person)...
After about 2 months..i started feeling dizzy and light headed..and about a month before this feeling i smoked a big blunt full of skunk, and fainted and it was a disgusting high..i saw things..i felt horrible..didnt feell real.etc..i was realy skared..the next 3 days i was different..i felt light headed..i had headaches, i felt cloudy..it eventuali cleared up after about 3 days...then i started a new job where i get up at 5 in d morning and then go college after and finish at 4 in the afternooon...i would stay up until about 12.30 on msn in the dark.. Anyway, so after about 3 weeks/month i start getting weird feelings in my head..light headed...heavy..kind of headache but nothing to strong..i panicked soo much i saw my doctor and he said i had a ear infection...i was veri releived..he gaiv me amoxycilin and it started getting better...but i still kept on thinking about this feeling..i was really skared it was something bad even tho my dok sed it was ear infection..i had so many diferent things in my head...(i was diabetic, anaemic, crazy, soo mani illneses)...i had a small panik atak one nite.. I started feeling kinda unreal.,.and i realised my memory isnt too good..i try n rememba things i dun 2 days b4 and i have to think really hard!!! ...

  • The tiredness may be just cause of your lifestyle.. so start eatting better, exercise etc. It sounds to me that you may be suffering from anxiety...

  • I hate to be so direct but, you should seriously get your act together! I mean you could have some serious underlying health issue here but you'll never know for sure (perhaps only after it's too late) until you really change your lifestyle and eliminate all these factors that could be causing all this. Never underestimate or disregard drugs and their power to totally do some serious brain wrecking. Be wary as most of your symptoms sound neurological. However, I do admit they might be psychological. Just stay calm and live healthy for a good while and be very observant and see whether you still notice anything at all. If so, I suggest (after blood work and just general examinations) you start trying to get to the bottom of it with a neurologist and go from there.

Pot makes you paranoid, totally. All your symptoms stem from your lifestyle. Start taking care of your body and mind and spirit and you will find a much better way to live! You are most likely vitamin and mineral deficient, which can cause most if not all of your symptoms. Get yourself a good multivitamin (food grade and of great quality). Try taking EmergenC daily. Drink pure water. Eat more fresh vegetables and less junk food (sorry, you said you were an 18 yo male so I assume you aren't eating very well;)). Get your B12 levels tested. B12 deficiency can cause neurological problems. If your level is under 500 you should supplement with methylcobalamin. Best wishesDOM
