Smoking marijuana can have a number of side effects because there is often additional ingredients in the product about which you may not know. Also, marijuana affects the central nervous system and it can result in many problems such as you are currently experiencing. It takes a bit of time for this to pass because the chemical ingredient in marijuana is stored in your body fat and is released over a period of time. For this reason, although you may not have smoked recently, you may still be experiencing the residual effects put down when you 1st smoked.
I don't know whether or not you told your doctor that you had smoked marijuana but I believe you need to indicate this because it may be what is causing your current anxiety and your perceptual problems. You and your doctor need to work on this together.
