What are the withdrawal symptoms of Cannabis?
These may be cannabis withdrawal symptoms
Thank you for your question on HCM!
Regarding your concern I think that your symptoms may be related to the withdrawal from cannabis. As far as I understand you have been using it for a long time, which can lead to addiction and withdrawal symptoms after stopping it.
Normal withdrawal symptoms include anxiety and depression, blood pressure changes, sleeping disturbances, loss of energy etc. I would also like to describe some effects of Cannabis on your cardio-vascular system:
It increases heart rate in new users although tolerance develops to this effect.It can also reduce your blood pressure causing enlarging of the blood vessels.
In the withdrawal phase following cessation of chronic use, cerebral blood flow may be significantly reduced. Cannabis is also a risk factor for strokes or transient ischaemic attacks. A vagal nerve damage has not been related to cannabis.
So I would recommend to have a 24 h ECG monitoring, a Head up Tilt Test for orthostatic hypotension to exclude these disorders.
I would also recommend to consult with the toxicologist to try to control better the withdrawal symptoms.
Hope to have been of help!
Feel free to ask any other questions!
In the past few months I have been more active and healthy than ever trying to look after myself, but at this time I was still smoking cannabis occasionally...whereas it has been about 2 months now that I have not had any at all. The last 2 times I smoked cannabis I had a bad reaction, which gave me what seemed like an anxiety attack...heart racing, extremely dry mouth, feeling sick (but not being able to vomit) and shaking. I had this once more without the use of cannabis about 3 weeks ago, when I was under a little bit of stress but I do not feel that this amount of stress was enough in and of itself to warrant such a reaction, so would I be right in assuming that the anxiety I was feeling was exasperated because of the withdrawal from cannabis?
I do not have any cravings for smoking (which I am glad about) it just seems to be the physical effects of not smoking which are causing the problem.
I hope my local GP will listen to me about getting a 24h ECG and Head Tilt Up Test!
I recommend to follow medical advices.
Hi again XXXX!
I would like to explain that withdrawal syndrome is manifested mainly by physical and physiological body systems implications during an initial phase.
Psychological craving may ensue thereafter, if this situation is left untreated and unsupervised.
So, I would recommend you to follow my above mentioned advices for an optimal approach to your current medical issue.
Wish you a good health! Dr. Iliri
