Arthritis and joint pains after quiting
Is joint pain/arthritis possible after quitting smoking? I'm on week 8 since I quit, and it's been 3 weeks since I last chew nicotine gum. I've been experiencing joint pain everywhere (hands, ankle, wrist, neck). Could this be a result of my body releasing toxins?

First off, congratulations on your quit! You should be very proud and with good reason.

As for joint pain/arthritis.......I don't know about that. Could it be tension? Your best bet would be to go see your physician. Everyones quit is so very different and the doctor would be able to tell you whats going on.

Keep us posted and tell us how you are doing.
