Smoking and Tobacco
iam 20 years old. About a month back i tried sniffing cocain and got a bad chest pain the next morning,i was having trouble breathing as well. iv been smoking marijuana for about 2 years now and iv started getting this pain every time i smoke.although its not as severe as the first time but its there,its like a stiffness in my chest.i got a few tests done like cholesterol test and ECG but they were clear.im not sure what this is.can you please help.
First, chest pain is a serious concern. You must see your doctor and have a frank conversation with him or her about your activity and the pain. Given the range of possibilities, I can't diagnose via the Internet. Second, do you think it's possible that your body is trying to tell you something and you aren't listening?
