hummmm I could not find anything about sore muscles .........


When cocaine use is stopped or when a binge ends, a crash follows almost immediately. This crash accompanied by a strong craving for more cocaine. Additional symptoms include fatigue, lack of pleasure, anxiety, irritability, sleepiness, and sometimes agitation or extreme suspicion.

Cocaine withdrawal often has no visible physical symptoms like the vomiting and shaking that accompanies the withdrawal from heroin or alcohol.

In the past, people underestimated the addictive properties of cocaine. However, cocaine is addictive when addiction is defined as a desire for more of the drug, despite negative consequences

This may seem a little off base to you and others. Cocaine and crack also depress pain. There was a doctor in my area about 15 years ago that used to prescribe cocaine to his arthritis patients because it made their pain go away and they felt better. I don't know where he got the stuff but needless to say, he is no longer practicing. But, it brings to mind that you may have an underlying medical condition that you don't know you have because you have been using for so many years on a consistent basis.

I would stay off the crack/cocaine and then go to a doctor about the muscle pain, but be sure to tell them of your drug use too.

part of it is that you are getting toxins out of your body....part of it is that your nervous system is not used to feeling like normal. your nerves are tricking you because what should feel normal is now hypersensitive because the drugs have been numbing your nerves. use bengay! and take vitamins. it will take a little time for your body to readjust. good luck!
