Rapid pulse in right arm, painful spam's due to Loud Marijuana. Is it Anxiety?

After smoking some kush (loud, marijuana) i had a rapid pulse in my right arm along with painful spasms, as the high went down the spasms stop and the pulse slowed down... i m not sure if it was because i was smoking loud instead of regular (mid) marijuana that i smoke regularly or what but i ve since stopped smoking weed but still smoke cigarettes and still i have a the same problem just not as intense i have a family history of anxiety and heart problems is this something i should be worried about or should i just stay away from weed and cigarettes

Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. The rapid pulse as well as painful spasms due to marijuana are not uncommon symptoms. I am glad that you have since stopped the usage of weed and would encourage you to consider the same with regards to smoking cigarettes as well. I also think that the family history of anxiety is making your condition worse and you may also have heart problems. Getting a cardiac profile and consulting a qualified doctor who can help with your illness symptomatically while you try going off of marijuana would be one way to deal with things. A consultation with a psychiatrist may also be helpful in quitting smoking cigarettes.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
