Avatar f tn Hi Ritax My GUESS would be you are suffering from panic attacks brought on by your reaction to the weed. Once you suffer a bad paranoia and panic attack, it is so easy for them to come on. They are very scary. You do seem to have other symptoms that I'm not sure about so I would really suggest that you go and see your doctor and be totally honest with him. Believe me, they have heard it all before and he or she will respect you for being honest.
Avatar n tn I have only smoked weed once, and have been scared to death of weed ever since from experiencing a terrible trip. Since then, I was once in a room full of people smoking pot, and I experienced the same thing just from being surrounded by the smoke. I do not, and never have, been constant friends with pot smokers. This was in the beginning of high school, and it was at a couple big parties. since those couple times, I have no longer put myself in those situations and with those people.
Avatar m tn Hello, so yesterday I had my first experience smoking weed. For a few years now I have had panic attacks off and on and I worry about ridiculous things almost every day. I took one hit of the weed and it burned my throat really bad. From that point on, I don't even know if I was high, but I just started freaking out.
723959 tn?1314747825 I had panic attacks during smoking weed back in my day. That's kind of when they started. I didnt know I was having panic during... I thought it was just a bad high... and it was. But! My Dr. said even if I NEVER smoked weed.. it was probably just a matter of time before I got a panic attack, regardless. Smoking prob. just helped induce it.

Avatar m tn Whenever I smoke pot, I get anxiety attacks. I had been smoking it regularly for about 2 years, until last november when they started. I will take a hit, and wait for a little bit. 2-3 minutes after, I get this HORRIBLE feeling in the center of my chest. It feels like someone is holding a gun to my head and counting down until when they shoot me. Then my heart rates spikes up, and starts POUNDING. I can feel it racing, and pounding in my chest, and my throat.
Avatar n tn it happens to everyone who smokes weed at least once or twice... i have been smoking weed for 10yrs and im only 20.... my sister used to be able to smoke with me, but she cant anymore due to the panic attacks she gets when she does smoke... (of coarse when it happens, all i can do is laugh, becuz im too hi 2 understand that shes really freaking out...) my advise is if you cant do it... then dont... i cant drink liquor... but i can sure smoke.

Avatar n tn and i don't think its any coincidence that there are so many people that smoke weed on this anxiety forum, it seems very likely to me that smoking weed causes anxiety problems..
Avatar m tn I had a panic attack a day after smoking two bowls of kronik. I've had panic attacks as a result of weed before but never like this one. Before going to sleep I thought I could comfort myself by tearing decorations down from my wall and otherwise rearranging things in my room, but eventually, I had to get it out. I went and talked to my mom and I went to the hospital where my blood pressure dipped and elevated.
Avatar f tn But they're pretty severe when they happen, so without more info on what exactly you were experiencing, what you've said so far indicates concern and fear because you were feeling disoriented from the dizziness, which would happen to anyone who felt dizzy whether it's from surfing and getting tossed around or from an anxiety attack. It's no fun to be dizzy. But anxiety attacks are intense.
Avatar n tn or severe panic, and thought maybe I had been having panic/anxiety attacks, which had been triggered by the weed, and if this is the case it would explain why I panic so often, however I can't be 100% sure. I'd really appreciate any help, because this is so so scary for me, especially since I want to avoid my parents knowing at all costs, and since in a week I go back to doing exams, something which also seems unreal.
Avatar n tn Hi, This is most probably related to your smoking weed. 'Effects of smoking are generally felt within a few minutes and peak in 10 to 30 minutes. They include dry mouth and throat, increased heart rate, impaired coordination and balance, delayed reaction time, and diminished short-term memory.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from anxiety since last 10 years. I faced panic attacks more frequently. I got tested myself throughly but all reports were negative. My doctor told me that I was facing psychological problem. I take alprex .25mg whenever I feel anxiety and after 15 minutes all become normal. Now I bear panic attack once in two or three years. Since last two years I have been suffering from high blood pressure. I got my liver,kidney and heart tested but every thing is normal.
Avatar f tn 2 weeks after the incident I had my second panic attack which led to me thinking like crazy about if have all these medical illnesses and ultimately been having constant anxiety and developed ocd from that. I'll never touch weed again and I suggest you never do either. You will feel better again , it just takes time. It wouldn't be a bad idea maybe to look into medication for a temporary thing to help. If you're against medication then I'd suggest excercising and eating healthier foods.
Avatar f tn I dont see anything wrong with smoking weed while pregnant, especially if you are not smoking it, like eating it threw brownies ect.. i think itll take pains away, it took my pains away for aches i had before i had gotten preg. I , however did smoke while pregnant when i didnt know and counted times throughout it did take tummy and back pains away. But i stopped because i do not wanna risk the fact of my son getting taken away.
Avatar n tn Weed can be psychologically addictive but not physically addictive -- that is, you won't suffer any physical withdrawal symptoms from quitting weed like you might from other drugs, such as Lorcet. If weed is making you feel like ****, now is a great time to get off the stuff. I have no moral or philosophical problem with weed, and I indulge in it occasionally myself, but I know it can be harmful to the lungs, esp. in the amounts you're using.
Avatar m tn Before you smoked weed, did you consider yourself to be an anxious person? Had you ever had anxiety or panic attacks? I'm not sure if it's possible for weed to push someone into an anxiety disorder or not. Since you plan on seeing your doctor anyway, I'd advise you doing it sooner than later. Don't want to freak you out, but something is going on and you need to find out what.
652525 tn?1225068620 I know this old girl that around mid 20's, a stripper, and that illegally use them for mild anxiety and panic attacks and even for recreation. But they drink and smoke weed a lot too. They do have the side effect, like vomiting, and nautious, etc.. like the side effect says for Xanax. But does this happen for all people? I have bought Zanax Illegally before just to try them, and I had 10 blue .
Avatar m tn If it goes away by tomorrow I'll stay away from the weed for a week or something, then only take a few inhales from a joint, and only do it for an hour or so, and see how I feel the next day. If it doesn't subside by tomorrow, I'll let my parents know of the panic symptoms and ask them to call a paramedic to the house, then I'll tell the medic of what I wrote above, and hopefully he will have some anxiety meds (which I hope to god will stop this for good).
Avatar m tn Anyway, I'm now experiencing frequent anxiety attacks after eating, or randomly, generally anything that increases my metabolism too much on the WRONG day, really really really sets me off, The whole, I think I'm dying, I rush myself to the Clinic or the ER, and of course I have no money to pay for any of these visits, it's getting ridiculous, but I'm afraid because of all the drug damage I've done to myself that maybe one of these times it could be real.
Avatar n tn Its the next day, still a little shaky and anxious but the weed is calling my name. This is a hard place to be. Weed definetly causes panic attacks and Anxiety Disorders, dont fool yourself. I started at 16 Im 36. I smoked about 15 of those 20 years. I regret it. I was smart I have 2 post graduate degrees, I shouldnt be renting. Weed is not a good thing.
Avatar m tn Had I read online about how common anxiety attacks after a night of drinking are, maybe I could have started my road to recovery sooner, and maybe some of you can. Anyways, I am a 25-year old college student (receiving my 2nd BA tomorrow actually :D) who had never experienced anything related to anxiety or panic attacks ever in my life. I've always been a laid back, easy-going individual.
