Really worried after smoking - persisting numbness/tingling
Posted 27 April 2009 - 09:57 PM
I smoked up about five days ago at a friend's house, and I have since felt a sometimes overwhelming numbness in seemingly random parts of my body. My friend is a paramedic and ruled out heart attack, stroke, etc, and says my blood pressure and heart rate are normal. The weed was not laced, as my friends who smoked with me are fine. One (who has very high tolerance) smoked less than me and said he felt somewhat similar the day after, but my problems have been ongoing for five days now. I have started taking B12 and Niacin within the hour, am starting exercise, and am going to take a smoking break until this clears up in hopes of flushing my system. It was much more than I have ever smoked before, so I can understand why this might happen but I'm still kind of worried as you may suspect.
Basically I was wondering if this is a reaction that would imply that I have done permanent damage, as I am very worried the symptoms will not go away. They are very in and out - one second I feel absolutely fine and the next I feel horrible, leading me to believe that the damage isn't permanent, but I'm not sure. The symptoms have reduced in intensity from one day to the next but are still sometimes crippling to my ability to function. Any tips on helping it go away faster?
Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Just kidding. I wouldn't worry about it, sometimes I can get ghost highs a week after I smoke without smoking any more.

If you ever decide to smoke again and this happens, then maybe marijuana isn't for you.. It isn't for everyone ya know.
- And to the guy who said he gets "ghost highs" without smoking.... Sorry to break the news to you, but that's called feening.
Essentially the same thing as getting a whiff of weed smell randomly without being around it for weeks, or tasting bud without smoking for weeks. Just yours is more intense.
OP - Don't worry my brotha, you'll be back to your norm in no time.

You'll be fine, it'll go away once you get the THC out of your body. Drink a lot of water if you want it to pass quickly.

yeah i had a heart attack a year and a half ago and im only 18, it was from myocarditis.
ive been having the same numbness feeling after smoking and still hasnt gone away and i also had a heart attack a year and a half ago from myocarditis and and am also 18.. so my question is, how did you get rid of the numbness? or did it just go away? thats kind of strange that we both would have that same problem given our medical history and all

The first time I was worried but it went away within a week I believe.
Don't worry man, keep smoking.
But if you're that worried just lay off or a while.
I just call them weed hangovers.

unless you can consume 4000 lbs in 15 minutes it's impossible to OD.

Hey guys I reckon this is the right forum to ask, I have this same feeling, like tingling when i touch stuff, and I havent smoked for about 2 and a bit weeks, it went away for a bit but has come back, I'm not gonna smoke again and does anyone know if it goes away because i dont really like it any more:/
Can't say I've ever heard of it lasting that long. If you are otherwise a healthy person, I'd say don't worry about it and stop dwelling on it. It could be that your are just being paranoid. The more you dwell on it the more you will feel like you have the symptoms your are describing. Mind over matter bro.
I used to have chest pains all day every day and I was conviced I had heart problems. Went to the doctor and went through a battery of tests which turned out completely clean. As soon as I stopped thinking I had chest problems, the pain went away.
Just relax. Maybe stretch, go for a run, and get your blood pumping.
