So I was a heavy smoker for about the last 9 months and had been on and off smoking heavily for the last year and a half. I quit 40 days ago today, and it has been a living nightmare.
The first week wasn't too bad, it wasn't until day 10 that I started feeling awful. Numbness on the left side of my body, pulsing headache, feeling weak on my left side, insomnia, heart palpitations. You name it I experienced it. So this prompted me to go to the Hospital, and I had every test under the sun ran on me.
Obviously everything came back perfectly healthy. So the last week and a half I have been feeling much more normal but I keep getting spurts of pure anxiety out of nowhere. Heart starts thumping hard, light headed, depersonalization, muscle spasms in my left calf.
I've been just trying to tough this out, but I'm curious if anyone can relate to what I'm experiencing and also give me an idea if this will be permanent or will I begin feeling human completely again.
any insight or stories are appreciated and I am really grateful for you reading mine and helping in advanced!
