i havn't smoked weed for about 3 years, when i was 14-16 i smoked everyday multiple times and one day i smoked and my heart felt really weird, like pounding, missing beats, and such like that i thought i was having a heart attack. i went to the doctor nothing was wrong with me. i tried to smoke again several weeks later and found myself in the same situation, this time i knew it was all in my head. however i started to not be able to move, i could't move my arms or even feel them and all i could do was focus on my breathing and heart rate. i know this is all in my head since i went to the hospital again and i was fine, even though when its happening i'm convinced i am going to die and having a heart attack. i don't really know what i can do, any advice?

First off I don't suggest you smoke pot anymore - obviously it does not agree with your chemical make up - yes weed can be used medicinally for anxiety but maybe in a different form such as eating it. I suggest you get some self help books to help you cope with your anxiety, and seek professional help from a psychiatrist NOT a GP

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.Withdrawal symptoms of weed present like this. You need proper abstinence and use of anxiolytics meanwhile is advised. Let your doctor have a look and find any organic cause if there.



Take care
