Severe head pain after smoking

Hi. I know doctors will suggest not smoking weed, but I have been almost everyday for about 8 months. For the past about 2 months, everytime I get high my head feels like it s going to explode. It is a severe unbareable pain. I keep smoking hoping it won t happen, but it s getting so bad that I can t handle it. It s all different kinds of weed so the type is not the issue, and I never had negative affects the first like 6 months. I can t seem to find anyone with the same story as me. What could this be, why didn t it happen until now, and how can I stop it? Please help me.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
See here, Marijuana is known to increase your blood pressure. This increases the chance of you getting a bleed in your brain and a stroke. Headache can also occur when one has high blood pressure. High risk of stroke. Also using marijuana is known to damamge and reduce sperm count and make men infertile. So it's your pick. Do you want to increase your chances to stroke out or get a heart attack. It is best you think about your health for once and get enrolled into a govt. recognised deaddiction facility and get the best benefit. Please do not delay.

welcome to healthcare forum
the head pain occurs due to more blood flow and that is occurring due to smoking of weeds. Why it did not happen earlier because our body try to neutralise anything coming on the way. But still if we go on adding so one day will come it will not correct automatically by our body process but treatment is highly required
