Palpitations triggered by cocaine

Posted by daxrrr @daxrrr, Aug 10, 2018

Hi to all, I explain my problem. I’m a 24 year old male and I had a very occasional use of cocaine for the past two years (I used it every 4-6 months). But the last time I used it (a month ago) I had chest pain and a sensation of tingling/electric shock in the arms. From that episode I already performed 3 EKGs that resulted normal but I started suffering of heart palpitations: now I can feel my pulse in parts of my body where I didn’t feel it before. For example if I join my thumb and my index, I can feel the pulse between the two fingers, or I can feel it in the fingers if I cross my hands, or I can feel it between my feet if I touch them with each other. Obviously I don’t want to touch that stuff again! I just wanna know if I will have these sensations for the rest of my life or if they will go away sooner or later. Does anybody had a similar experience? Thanks in advance for your replies and sorry for my bad english.

Sounds alot like myself , I now suffer from panic disorder from a bad turn I took while taken coke . My heart was beating for hours on end and I just kept getting sick it triggered so much adrenaline that now any time my heart races just a tiny bit I triggers that feeling again which sets into a panic attack. I just notice my heart so much more now it's crazy I think it's just my brain on high alert

I feel Like I'm experiencing some panic disorders too. how long been passed since the day you used cocaine? Do you know if panic disorder can cause heart palpitations, heart racing, weak pulse? is there any treatment for them?

The last time I used was August last year, yeah can cause all them symptoms. I always felt like I was going to die. I am now coming out of it I still have panic attacks but not as bad. The best treatment is to start of trying to get on medication like beta blockers these will help with physical symptoms then think about doing a course in CBT , doing that is the reason I know have this under control
