So I had gotten into smoking Weed heavily about 10 months ago. I was smoking everyday at least 3 times a day. I am an athlete and decided that it was altering my performance so I decided to quit completely.
21 days ago I quit cold turkey, and it has been so awful. I've never suffered from anxiety before but here I am day in and day out thinking there is something severely wrong with me.
The first 4 days I was fine, then it all hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn't feel like I was there mentally when walking around, I had no motivation, constant light-headedness, tingling in my arm and leg on one side of my body, chills and cold sweats. So I thought I was dying and went to the hosputal, they did an ekg, mri, CT scan and blood work. all came back great, the neurologist told me I was suffering from migraines with aura yet I had never had these issues before.
2 weeks go bye and I begin to feel more normal physically, except I now had some trouble breathing and a tight chest, then I started thinking I was having a heart attack or something, go to the doctor again and get blood pressure and heart rate checked, and sure enough I'm completely healthy.
Now 21 days out and the last 2 days I've been getting muscle twitching in my legs and that is now freaking me out, thinking I'm having a seizure or something yet I keep reading that anxiety can cause muscle twitching. I have read that all these symptoms occur from marijuana withdrawal but I didn't believe it.
I would have never smoked if I thought that this was how my body would respond, I'm in constant fear of my health like I might fall over and die or when I go to sleep I won't wake up. I've never been like this before and I'm trying my hardest daily to get through it.
I just wanted to share my story so far and see if anyone had any stories to share as well.
