Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

The symptoms which you have described are all indicative of an allergic reaction. A person can develop an allergy to any sucstance and it is possible that either the cocaine or some other contaminant in the cocaine could have caused this.

Since your symptoms appear quite severe, you must seek immediate medical attention. So, please go to the ER as early as possible for an evaluation and furher treatment.

Wish you all the best.
