Hello and welcome.
Thank you for your query.
Let me educate you on the organ-specific effects of cocaine use:
Heart- Increase in heart rate
and blood pressure. Heart attacks (Myocardial arrest or Myocardial infarction
) can result due to the constriction of arteries that supply the heart as a result of cocaine use
Gastrointestinal tract (GIT)- Constriction of arteries supplying the gut, can result in a drop in supply of oxygen
to the GIT resulting in ulcers or perforation
Kidneys- Decreased blood supply to kidneys can cause damage to the cells in the kidney resulting in kidney failure or high blood pressure
Brain- Constriction of the brains blood vessels can cause strokes
Respiratory system- Absorption of cocaine can cause permanent lung damage and even respiratory failure
From the above mentioned effects, which are only few of the most important ones, there could be a possibility that your boyfriend has a perforation or even one or more ulcers in his GIT, which is aggravated every time he 'snorts' cocaine.
I advise a consultation with a doctor to get him diagnosed and also a de-addiction center which can help him to get rid of this habit.
You need to be strong and make some serious life-changing decisions.
I hope I have been of assistance. You can write back to us for any other clarifications.
