Nose getting worse AFTER stopping Cocaine
I had only used coke for like 7 months tops, but then I decided it was no good and stopped because I could feel my nasal passages had gotten wider and it scared me. Told myself that I would never do that again. That was in 2012. And even with damage I had done, as long as was not snorting my nose stayed the same. Don't know why I didn't listen to myself, or I guess over the course of two years I forgot how serious the situation was because with a little peer pressure I snorted 2 more times in July of 2014. That was last time I touched the stuff. And now April of 2015 I can feel that my nose has gotten worse. No hole(yet) and no bleeding, but I can tell my inner nose is just dissolving/deteriorating. Less and less with every passing month even though I don't touch the stuff. Went to two Dr's who told me nothing was wrong. I'm sure that had to do with the fact that I had no insurance & no way to pay anything. I just got some decent insurance but lately too broke to pay the co pay to see a specialist and don't really know what type of specialist to look for. Nothing is left in there except the middle part that separates but that has gotten so thin. On the outside my nose looks normal but I dont know how long that will last. I keep putting carmex in my nose on the daily to avoid it being dry. Scared as hell though. Anyone know someone else that has had a similar situation? Any advice?
