    Hey guys,


    A good friend of mine went to the doc's today and got some blood work done. They are also going to do a CAT scan and she has to see a neurologist. She's been having days where her arm or legs go numb for hours at a time.

    She's also snorts cocaine once or twice (perhaps as many as 3-4x) per month.

    This may seem like a stupid question, but would snorting cocaine do that?

    If so, if she stops has she permanently damaged herself or can things go back to normal?

    Thanks in advance, and if this is in the wrong forum, please move it :)

    "Cocaine is a strong central nervous system stimulant that interferes with the reabsorption process of dopamine, a chemical messenger associated with pleasure and movement."

    Taken from: http://www.nida.nih.gov/Infofax/cocaine.html

    Though they don't list numbness as a potential side-effect, cocaine may be the problem. And even if her numbness isn't related to her drug use, there are so many benefits to quitting that I couldn't even begin to list here.

    I hope your friend gets better and I hope that she stops doing cocaine.

    Did she inform the doctor of her cocaine use?

    ive done coke and meth for a long time and that sounds exactly like some of the problems i have. i think that you nervous system can heal itself to a certain extent but im pretty sure that damage from that is permenant. i know dealer whos done meth for a good portion of his life and now has a limp because of the damage its caused his nervous system.

    Thanks for all the replies guys, i appreciate it.

    Macko, she told me she was done with it, i believe her.

    Toda Party....i'm not sure :( I doubt it though. She confides in me a lot and i had no idea about this.

    Gen0c1de :( Dude you gotta quit!
