Hey, new member here. I smoked for 10 years before quitting for around 8 months (can't remember having any withdrawal symptoms other than cravings). I slowly relapsed into a heavier smoker than before. Now it has been approx 15 months smoking again. About 4 weeks ago I started using nicotine gum while cutting down the smokes. Well, I ended up having a nicotine overdose & 2 big blood blisters on the inside of my cheeks which really freaked me out & has turned me into a bit of a hypochondriac unfortunately I didn't know the gum was the cause at the time & I thought there was something majorly wrong with me because of the blood blisters, dizziness, confusion, blurred vision etc. I became focused on my mouth & everything going on in there & eventually scared myself out of smoking so I'm not having any cravings whatsoever. But I am having other symptoms this time around. The obvious ones aren't worrying - fatigue, restlessness, anxiety, constipation etc.
It's certain other ones that I'm getting that are concerning me but it could just be me over thinking it.
I keep burping a lot & there is like a pocket of air in my throat. Maybe silent reflux as I don't have heartburn? Can quitting smoking cause this?
The last 2 days I've been having slow head & body shakes/tremors. I have read this can be from withdrawal but has anyone else experienced this? Quite annoying when trying to go to sleep!
Also a lot of neck & shoulder pain. Maybe from stressing? Or is the neck the cause of the tremors/shakes?
Do I just ride it out for a few days or is there something more concerning going on?
