I have just gleaned the medical report for George Zimmerman. I noticed a few things that are interesting but in fact are not necessarily relevant to his case. The first is about the Temazepam, and it looks like to me that only 1 tablet was dispensed, but I could be wrong. This would be consistent with having sleeplessness due to being at the hospital with his father and grandmother. There was no general evidence that he was taking this for a longer term.
However, what really stood out to me was that George was using something that is normally taken by people who suffer from osteoarthritis, namely Chondontrin (sp) and Glucosamine. Then I noticed that he was diagnosed with sacroiliitis. Ouch!! Poor George. (I have been diagnosed with the same condition but fortunately it appears that I do not have the underlying arthritis). Sacroiliitis is an extremely painful condition. In a young man (and especially in men with a certain blood typing called HLAB27) this could be a sign that he has ankylosing spondylitis. I sincerely hope that George does not have that condition!!
Anyway, looking at the list of medications there is nothing that is really remarkable in the list except of course the prescription for his ADD. With the Temaze there is not even a repeat prescription, so that is an indication that it was for a short term use. However, those who are against George Zimmerman have tried to make it sound like George was using illegal drugs, but this was not the case. His use of the medication for ADD is quite legitimate, and as for the Temaze it seems that there is a logical explanation for short term use.
I have come across people on other boards having a field day with the information about those two drugs, especially because when speed is used for illegal reasons it can and does lead a person into violent behaviour. However, when the product is used for a legitimate purpose it works to slow down the activity of the brain (brain hyperactivity is a feature of ADD or ADHD which is treated with amphetamine). Nobody mentioned the other medication or even the diagnosis of sacroiliitis.
The sacroiliitis is an inflammation of the sacro-iliac joint which is at the end of the lumbar spine. During an active period of inflammation there is a lot of associated pain. For George to have someone on top of him, beating the shit out of his brains would have been an excruciating experience, and not just because of what was happening to his head. That body weight on top of his own body would have been a nightmare to George if the sacroiliitis is active at the time.
