Foam at the mouth & fainting...???

    I am writing here because I have been trying for the better part of five years to learn how to enjoy weed.

    The problem is that it's a game of russian roulette for me.

    I haven't smoked any in the last two months, because the last time, I had a really bad experience again.

    It does not seem to have anything to do with how much I smoke, and I am not afraid of dying when I have a bad reaction, as I am perfectly aware that the effects are temporary, albeit uncomfortable.

    I only had 2 tokes - in the most comfortable situation ever, in a great mood, and I had the worst reaction ever - other than one where I had a frigging seizure after smoking *one* toke (seriously. I wet myself and everything - never had a seizure before or since).

    Well, after the two tokes, I sauntered off to the washroom, thinking I was going to have a GREAT night because my boyfriend and I had gone to a casino and won a bunch of money. No worries. But - once I was in the washroom, it's like my brain 'popped'. The only way I can describe it is that I had full blown psychosis - with full depersonalization and everything. Of course, my heart was racing too fast. I went out and told my boyfriend "Sorry, I'm going to have a bad reaction. Maybe I'll feel better if I lay down". Away I went. I peaked so hard I couldn't talk. My bf came in to try to "talk me down", but I assured him (when I could speak) that I was okay. I knew I was just having a bad "reaction". I got really shaky, and decided a bath might help me reconnect with reality. Then, it got really bad. The tub wouldn't fill up. I sat there thinking:"You're just having a bit of a time warp. Sing a song in your head and you'll see, by the end it will start to fill". I swear, the level of water DIDN'T BUDGE. I sang another song in my head, talked to my bf for a while, NOTHING. I looked down and the water hadn't moved. But, I felt like I hadn't lost touch with my common sense, so I REALLY freaked. I must've been completely psychotic because I was convinced I was DEAD for a few minutes, and that I had somehow drowned in the tub or something - and that I was in pergatory!! SO, more of this lovely experience for the next THREE HOURS. My heart did not slow down even once. I lay in bed shaking and I began foaming at the mouth. Yay. more fun. I think maybe me having low blood pressure could be related, but I don't know. I hit the bad peaks & vallies for 3 hours, and for the next 2, I was able to calm down some because I noticed it was wearing off.

    As I said, once before, after just 1 toke of medical mj, I freaked out and got really lightheaded. I got out of the car I was in, walked down the driveway, went blind, and couldn't speak. My bf caught me just as I collapsed. He said I had a full blown seizure from what it looked like. As for me? I had a Near Death Experience.

    So - I've read about panic & stuff - but isn't this just over the top??? What the Hell???

    that's quite a story. I've fainted from too much weed, but never any bad reactions from 2 tokes, for sure that's not normal. You should definitely see a doctor if you haven't already, as i've heard that mj can trigger latent psychosis, seizures and depression in people who wouldn't have otherwise had these problems. Needless to say, you should find an alternative to smoking mj.

    I'd consider seeing a doc about the potental of some underlying eppielptic condition..

    There was one ocassion in my teens where I smoked a ridiculous quantity and ended up - for want of a better term - 'spassing out'. It wasn't a seizure as I was fully conscious throughout, but my back arched uncontrontrollanly and every muscle in my body was in spasm. As I said, I never lost consciousness, though.

    I relate my experience to nicotine poisoning as we were toking heavy joints pretty continuously at the time. Unless you were doing the same, I'd sugess it's worth discussing with your medial practitioner- you needn't necessarily mention its relation to weed: "The other day I had a seizure" should be more than enough to warrant any further investigation! :p

    It'll give you peave of mind, at leat. :)

    It sounds like pot causes you to have panic attacks, which cause you to faint. I've experienced this before and almost passed out. If it happens frequently, I would still quit smoking or at least smoke some less potent weed. You may not be able to handle weed of that caliber.

    I would definitely say you have a problem other than that which faces you when smoking weed (which should be none to begin with). I would seriously have that looked at first if you are even considering to further your smoking.

    possible that you are allergic...i was talking to a girl last night who said her dad was allergic and that it passed down to her or something, maybe ask one of your parents or go to a doctor with that in mind.

    I've had a number of siezures before from smoking marijuana. It's wierd. I'll take like a really fat hit or something, then my head gets lightheaded and my vision gets blurry. Then I wake up from a dream on the floor with usually something hurting on my head because I hit my head on something on the way down. I don't know why this happens but it does and its not pretty.

    "I think maybe me having low blood pressure could be related, but I don't know."

    correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't marijuana cause low blood pressure? if you already have low blood pressure and smoke, it could make your existing condition much worse.

    How about you don't smoke marijuana? Seriously, what makes you want to smoke it if you have a bad reaction every time? Just have a drink or do breathing exercises or something if you want altered consciousness.

    Panic Attack. I had a few. The worst feeling... and you just ride it out. Normally its from too much too fast, or too much. Once a weed muffin did it to me. I took a xanax, used a muscle massager on my back, and it stopped the bad experience.

    You could faint from your bloodpressure going low. And the foam was probably related to the cotton mouth experience. However, let a doctor know that you think you had a seizure, better safe than sorry.

    Im just curious, but do you know what strain of herb it was?

    Sounds like a bad case of rabies or something like that. If weed does that to you,then do what others have suggested and not smoke until you find out whats happening to you.
