Every once in a while, usually on the weekends (?), in the afternoon or evening I start to feel like I've smoked pot (but I didn't). But it's more the way one feels when one's coming off of pot- really muddle headed and tired. Or like smoking weak pot. There's no crazy head trip, just the feeling of being floored mentally tired and "weird", but not sleepy. The only thing I do different on the weekends is sometimes wait until noon to eat breakfast. This last weekend when it happened both saturday and sunday, I felt like I was peeing just as much as I was drinking, although I had been doing light work outside where is was warm and I and should have lost some liquid via sweat.
I am hypothyroid, but I take medication and recently had a normal HST test. Other ongoing symptoms I've had are sore wrists and fingers, anemia, very recently my blood pressure has gone up (but it's still within normal range), a huge bruise above my inner ankle although I had no injury to the area, and horizontal ridges on my fingernails (going crosswise). In the winter I get Reynoud's type symptoms, but the symptoms do not go away all winter, even when my hands are warm. I've been tested for rh. arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, and autoimmune caused anemia, but all were negative. I had high eocinophils once, but the doctor didn't think much of this, even though I don't have allergies.
Does anyone know anything about the body feeling 'stoned' without smoking pot? It's so creepy, not to mention inconvenient!

  • I am not sure about all the other symptoms, but the "stoned" feeling can be several things. It can be becuase of your blood pressure. Although I've never heard of it being caused by high blood pressure. I have a problem with low blood pressure, and that usually gives me that "stoned" feeling. Other things could be becuase of low blood sugar. Since you said you eat later on the weekends, your blood sugar lowers until you eat. Plus, add in the heat you experience, that can also make the body more tired. This is just a guess. I'd try to stay hydrated as much as you can, and maybe frequently check your blood sugar when you are in these situations. I wish you the best of luck!

  • What about diabetes? You need to look into your nutrition, too. Obviously, you cannot wait that long to eat.
