    Hi @AlbertoRadu

    Sorry to hear that you are experiencing aches everywhere after taking cocaine. It's good that you went to A&E and I'm sorry that they weren't more helpful.

    As the article states, the comedown can feel really bad and you can feel unwell. However, unfortunately, we aren't medical/health professionals so we can't say for sure what's going on. Your best bet is to go to your GP for advice. You can also call contact out of hours https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/urgent-and-emergency-care/nhs-out-of-hours-services/

    Since you have been doing cocaine for a while, you might also want to check out FRANK https://www.talktofrank.com/ for support too. And don't forget you can always post in our forums as well!

    Take care,

    Recently quit. 2 months clean but I have an ear nose and throat specialist appointment in 2 weeks. I did cocaine for about 8 months almost daily. What we he/she be able to tell? Will my sinus and nose be clear of any leftover cocaine? How long does it usually take for your sinuses and nose says to be cleared of any cocaine residue ?

    Hey @ausmar34


    Firstly, well done on being 2 months clean! That’s a big achievement and I hope you keep it up!


    Since cocaine is absorbed into your bloodstream there may not be much in the way of residue left over. That said, since you were doing cocaine almost daily for 8 months, there may be a chance that it has caused some irritation or damage to your nose. You can check out our article on cocaine and your nose here.


    Now that you’re a member of The Mix, you might want to introduce yourself over here. You can also create a new discussion in our drink and drugs forum if you’d like to get some more support. Alternatively, there’s always FRANK.


    See you around :)
