I suffer from a very rare from of Gastroparesis where I'm unable to drink fluids and keep them down. I've tried so many different medications for it, and all of them either make me nauseous (which I am all the time anyway because of the illness) or have really bad side effects (I'm prone to getting almost every side effect from medication.)
I have also tried almost every nausea medicine; they all either make me unable to function or don't work. Weed helps, in ONE hit, no bad side effects for me. It helps my anxiety, too.
When I don't smoke, I can't keep any fluids down. I'm chronically dehydrated and weed helps me keep it down, and also helps me eat. I'm always somewhat underweight but when I don't smoke I'm scary thin.
My theory is this- weed helps relax the stomach muscles. Gastroparesis locks and clamps down the stomach muscles so it cannot move what's in it, causing nausea and sometimes vomiting, as well as food moving too quickly and not absorbing enough.
When I smoke, I feel it opening up, and it starts moving; my digestion becomes almost normal. I can drink. I can eat! Amazing!
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Any thoughts/comments on this?
Thank you for hearing me out!
