Question: Please Help Me

 JMP123 - Sun Jul 31, 2005 9:24 pm

I have a problem that is really starting to worry me, im only 16 years old and I have a history of marijuana and dextromethorphan abuse (even though ive been clean from DXM for 2+ months and marijuana for about a month), ever since i quit doing Dextromethorphan I have been feeling like my right lung doesnt get air when i breathe in deep. I can breathe fine if im taking small breaths but if i take a deep breath it feels like my right lung doesnt get hardly any air. Also ive been havin heart palpatations and my face, lips, hands, and legs have been randomly going numb along with feeling dizzy and sometimes nauseas. I also have very vivid and reoccuring dreams that I never use to have....

I havent been diagnosed with anxiety or bipolar disorder but I fit into a lot of the symptoms. I just want to know a doctors opinion on if you think I should tell my dad I need to see a doctor or not. thank you so much

Well I guess you never got an answer....neither did I. It would be nice if they answered all of the posts. This isn't a social site.....we are here because we are seeking medical advice.
