Alright I'll start with some background:
I'm 29. I've been smoking since I was 16, marijuana and cigarettes. I drank heavily for the past 5 years.
A week or so before this event, I was very stressed out. My dad had an aneurism, I had lost my job for missing work while he was in the hospital, had cars break down, etc.
I had stopped the marijuana about a week before this happened, and I stopped drinking about 3 months prior.
But, I was very stressed so I relapsed. I was on my third beer when I took a hit of marijuana for the first time in about a week. My heart started beating really fast and hard which is usually what happens, but I became very anxious.
About 15 minutes later, I decided to hop in the shower to calm myself and wear off the high because it was too much.
When I stood up from the chair:
- I got really dizzy
- My entire head got cold and tingly, like pins and needles when your arm or something "goes to sleep"
- My entire body got hot and I started sweating all over
- My ears started ringing very, very loud
- My vision started going black
I tried to drink water but I was not coordinated enough to do so. I could barely stand up. I dropped the cup in the sink and stripped down and got in the shower with cold water, but the cold water put my body into shock and I couldn't breathe so I switched it to hot water and then I started feeling better.
Ever since then, my ears are constantly ringing. Not loud, but faintly. I was also fighting some mild erectile dysfunction before this, which has since become worse.
Also, I'm not sure what to even call this, because I don't think it's a flutter, but my heart will randomly beat very hard. It's not irregular or anything, but like; thump-thump-thump-THUMP-thump-thump at completely random times. This has been happening for maybe a year or so.
Any input is appreciated.
