don't worry it is most probably all in your head. You can suddenly have an adverse reaction to weed, like it triggers something in your brain. You just have to ride it out and try to distract yourself or have a sleep til it wears off. You are not going to die from a few tokes of weed its just that your senses are super sensitive right now. Don't smoke it again as you will most likely have this feeling again.

I can feel my heart pounding against my chest really loudly like its palpitating and I havnt been drinking any coffee, I ve just recently stopped actually. Ive been to the doctor and she said its normal and will go away because you ll stop thinking about it, but I cant stop thinking about it because its so loud and I KNOW it isnt my normal heartbeat, it feels different even tho the doc says its fine.. its really annoying! I just want it to go back to before.. can you please help?!
