Around 5 months ago on May 5th I had something weird happen to me while smoking marijuana. That week, I had a pretty bad chest cold with a lot of coughing and such. I shouldn't have been smoking but I was anyway. I was taking a few good size puffs as I always do when all of a sudden during a puff, it felt like something popped in my chest/lung I guess(on the right side). At first I didn't really notice much, but after a few hours or so I noticed pain in that area of my chest where I felt the pop. The pain would be at its worst when sitting down or laying on that side and not so bad when standing. I could feel the area where it popped pop again when I would do things like cough, hack up flem, or blow my nose(not every time I would do these things but sometimes). I was worried so I went to the doctor. I described my symptoms but she wasn't really sure of what it could be and sent me to get an x-ray which came back normal. About a week had passed and I decided I needed to stop smoking marijuana and cigarettes, rest, and hopefully I would get better(the pain and popping would stop). I stopped most physical activity like playing basketball and golf and didn't really do too much. Around two months had gone by and things were looking a little better. I wasn't really coughing or hacking up flem as much since I quit smoking so the pop had pretty much disappeared, and the pain started to subside. But then something terrible started. The best way I can describe it is like when your eating something that crumbles into little pieces and having a piece fall on your leg. That's what it felt like but all over and pretty much constantly( at its worst every 2 or 3 seconds). Then one day I was looking down at a spot where I felt it happen and I could see my hair actually move. This was really starting to drive me crazy. I ended up going to another doctor. She had no idea but took blood tests and gave me an x-ray which both came back normal. Well after about a month of this going on I felt a muscle spasm in my leg one day that wouldn't go away. It would spasm every 2 or 3 seconds sometimes and then not do it for 20 seconds or more before doing it again. It finally went away after a couple days. I read online that stretching would make spasms stop. I started feeling other spasms all over. They aren't every second but definitely enough to drive me crazy. Sometime I don't feel them for a couple minutes or so and if I feel one that doesn't stop and keeps spasming, I just move that part of my body and it stops. And now I have started feeling pinpricks. Like something is biting me. And I have developed a rash that itches and I feel other spots on me itch sometimes that go away with a little scratch. This is all really freaking me out and I don't know how much longer I can take it. What's next? And this is weird but all these symptoms I have listed aren't as severe after waking up in the morning and eating. Somehow them two things help. I have thought maybe it's just scabies since I have the rash, itching, and pinpricks. But that doesn't explain the hair moving or the muscle spasms. Oh and I just remembered I also have a feeling like little bubbles are popping in my leg after long walks. I am assuming this is all related to the pop I felt in my chest/lung when smoking marijuana. Do you have any idea of what that pop might have been and is there anyway to know or anything I can do. I feel so hopeless, please somebody help me.
The pop i felt wasn't in my windpipe. It popped near my nipple and defintley wasn't from a seed. It was some sort of rupture to an area in my lung i think. I never had any problems in my body up until this and i am 25 years old so i am pretty sure my symptoms are from whatever happened that day but thanks for your trying to help.
I am going to go back to the doctor soon and get a test for scabies done. Idk if thats what it is but the last few days i've noticed that the itching/biting gets really bad when i become anxious or stressed out.
No I haven't changes my detergents and I have the same diet as I always have. I think I may have some sort of skin disorder though because of the rash I developed. I just hope it is something like scabies that can be treated. I really need to go to the dermatologist soon.
