My rehab, 04
Shocked stretch

I originally went to this rehab called Capstone in Searcy, Arkansas becuase my lawyer suggested to go through 90+ days in an in-patient rehab. I'd cal them if I were you, I turned out alright finally. That place worked wonders, completely changed my mindset. Anyway, I've been clean since, but I remember having the same sinus problems after doing coke. The thing you probably already know, or should, is that pure coke doesn't burn and doesn't hurt your sinus, doesn't get caught in your nose and cause any discomfort. What causes your problems is the stuff that the powder is cut with (i.e. - acetone, baking soda) that you are putting up your nose and it doesn't like it. Anyway, I'd recommend rehab first, but if you don't do that then a columbian connect to get that sht before it's stomped on.

Extremely eHealthy
I think someone needs to tell you that you are headed down a very serious road. You are just shy of a deveated spetum if you don't already have one. The damage to the mucus membrain of the nose is not a good thing. My son has a devetated septum and has not used in over 5 years. He can blow his nose now and close one side and still blow both side out with the hole between the nostrils. Is this what you want. My suggestion is also rehab and forget about Columbia.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These are psychosomatic symptoms.
You should consult psychiatrist to evaluate you.
Cognitive behavioural therapy sessions are needed to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
