Experienced intense pressure after smoking weed

After smoking weed , my head all of a sudden started feeling intense pressure on sides of my head my eye would twitch and my jaw felt like it was full of tension and locking . My legs were twitching and I suffered a panic attack during that. These symptoms ring a bell? Thank you- justin

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Weed smoking can precipitate panic attacks and anxiety which can last for several months. Anxiety can cause restlessness, choking feeling in respiration, tension/locking feeling due to muscle spasm and palpitation.

Anxiety and panic also lead to multiple types medically unexplained somatic symptoms like: Pressure on sides of my head/eyes and leg twitching. For treatment you need to quit weed.

If symptoms are severe and prolong you can meet psychiatrist. He/she will also help you in deaddiction from weed.

Wishing her good health and all the best.
