It's not unusual for your heartbeat to speed up after smoking marijuana, but it's effects only last for 4 hours. Perhaps you drank too much coffee?

Hello :) I have been smoking marijaunna heavily since i was about 14/15, and I am now 19 and have been smoking it almost every day for a year. The last few times I have smoked I have felt a weird sensation of numbness down my left hand side and an increased heart rate. I was wondering why this was, as it is a recent occurance.

Hello, I was a daily Marijuana user and i loved it i mean i smoked at least 3 times a day. I have had a tough year with my family and marijuana always helped me chill and relax but i smoked that legal Herb and i had a horrible panic attack where my heart was beating fast and i thought i was going to die. Now everytime after that when i use marijuana i have horrible paranoia and it feels like my heart just starts racing but when i have my friends feel my chest they say its pretty normal just a little fast. But too me it seems like i can hear and feel it beating in my chest. I m a pretty healthy kid no heart disease no asthema nothing like that. And i have a normal blood pressure when im not high

Does the rocking of a ship increase insomnia in those who have recently had a stroke and exhibit an increased startle reaction? I recently shared a cabin with a stroke victim who claimed she could not sleep all night. What I noticed is that repeatedly in the middle of the night she would suddenly and violently wake up without cause and think I was making noise. She also the week before the trip underwent an invasive procedure endoscopicly to see if she needed a stint placed in her artery. Could she be reacting to that, too? She claimed she slept better once we were in a hotel on land and I got my own cabin. Others in my family report that I am a quiet sleeper, so I believe I am not the cause of her insomnia which has plagued her all her life. A very light sleeper, or is something more serious going on that her doctor needs to know about? Thanks for your answer in advance. Nina Daniel
