Q: 

sooo I thizzz a lot, (ecstasy) does it cause brain damage?

A: "The findings support earlier indications that the drug MDMA, often called Ecstasy, may cause lasting damage to nerves that produce serotonin, an important chemical messenger in the human brain associated with mood and personality traits."Courtesy: http://funadvice.com/r/3kn38gasv5If you are using words like "thizzz", it''s a pretty clear sign you''ve done too much. I would suggest never ever even touching stuff like that. It can kill you. It''s not something to joke about. It''s very serious. Doing ecstasy religiously is very bad for your brain because of the high amounts of methamphetamine in it.. Most ecstasy tablets are about 50% some sort of amphetamine which has evidence showing that it CAN...


Q: 

Water intoxication and subsequent brain damage

A: Hello - Proper hydration is very important, but during normal healthy times it''s generally a relatively minor issue. One way to tell whether you''re dehyrated or not is to pinch some skin on the back of your hand and see if it stays pinched up by itself for more than a second. If so, you''re probably a little low on fluids. Also, if your urine is concentrated (low volume, darker in color) then you probably need a little extra water. While drinking a liter of water after a long dry spell during the day isn''t a bad idea, more than that in one session is likely to cause some symptoms and is wasted anyway. Your body can only handle so much at a time when healthy. When sick it''s often difficult to keep fluids down, which is why many times a stomach bug ends up sending the patient to the...

Q: 

Can casually smoking cause brain damage?

A: Are you talking about cigarettes or dope? Even the anti-smoking lobby haven''t suggested that smoking causes brain damage, although one study claimed it caused meningitis!

It''s worth trying. its only a tempory condition! the more you smoke,the more the brain will get used to it! at the moment its just tellin you that its a foreign substance and that you should not be doing it! you are experiencing the damage first hand. the frequency in being casual quickens and shortens with time turning into addiction. if we smoke we are just really needing to that holding onto something for...

Q: 

how can the common cold cause brain damage?

A:  It has long been believed that high fevers can cause brain damage, especially if left untreated. So how much truth is there to this claim?

Most fevers are caused by viral or bacterial infections, but they can also be caused by toxins, cancers or autoimmune diseases. A fever is just a symptom of illness, not an illness itself.

A: I believe the article posted on this site indicates that severe migraines over a long period of time CAN cause brain damage. I freaked out when I first read it because I''ve been having migraines since I was a young child and they have only gotten worse over time. My boyfriend said something helpful when he was trying to calm me down. He asked me if I felt like I had sustained brain damage. I don''t, so...the best thing I can do is to keep trying to reduce my migraines. If you only have mad migraines some of the time - I don''t know if I would recommend a bunch of expensive tests but I understand that sometimes you just need peace of mind....

Anyone out there dealing with nerve damage to legs caused by migraine brain damage?

A: Hello,   I''m so sorry to read about your situation. You''re the first person I''ve seen with lesions or other brain damage that''s causing symptoms.
