Thanks for your query. Chronic cocaine use can indeed be associated with peripheral neuropathy that id associated with tingling sensation and numbness as you had mentioned. Treatment consists of b complex supplements and drugs like pregabalin. You would also require to consulta substance use specialist for cocaine drpendency as it is associated with multiple complications. Wish you good health.
