Headache to serious brain injuries

Today me and my friend went for a coffe,and he complained obout a headache over his right eye,he told me he could not see anything far right just straight.His left eye was ok.Then he went home.After couple of hours his father called me and told me he is in hospital.A friend of ours visited him,he told us he went completely crazy,he talks gibberish cant understand anything barely recognizes his parents.The doctors at hospital tested him for drugs,he was positive only on THC,he smoked weed,they did a brain scan also didnt find anything told he was healthy 100%.They are now sending him at psychiatry,he was healthy before and had no similar issues,he has 20 years and is a very inteligent man. Can you please tell me anything obout it or similar conditions ? Sry for my bad english.

THC is a cannibis and it is a psychoactive substance means. the overdose of the drug causes the symptoms like what your friend had. it causes excitement, irrevelant talk, inablity to recognise, confused and agitiated state. people take these drugs for euphoria and he is addicited to the drug. these drugs are illegeal to posses and use them, suggest and motivate your friend and his family to join for a deaddiction center.

I had two lumbar punctures that resulted in CFS leaks and spinal headaches. I am having extreme vertigo, nystagmus has now been diagnosed. This morning I woke with my left arm paralyzed. It was not asleep no tingling occurred but after about 30 minutes I was able to move my arm again. Can a spinal headache cause a brain injury and is it always evident in an MRI. Hearing balance tests identified the nystagmus.

Hello, I severely injured my brain last year taking an overdose of serqeul in a botched attempt to kill myself. I have add and was taking 20 milligrams a day of adderall and decided to try different dosages to see if it helped me. It did and discovered that 40 milligrams was best. The thing is, we didnt see a Doctor for my condition and decided on our own that that was what I needed. We went to an authority on adderall and just simply exlained my dilemma to her and asked for 40 milligrams per day. She was happy to do it but now we are being flagged for Doctor shopping and I can no longer get the drug. I found out pretty easily that it is legal to take adderal with some neurological damage a.............by the way this drug helps my functioning by at least 50% and gives me a much better quality of life. Anyway, would neurological testing prove my point? Sincerely, Daniel Lamb, Iola, Kansas
