Hi all,

I got intense pins and needles in my hands (very slight tingling in the left arm) for about 30 minutes the day after a cocaine and alcohol binge (I had also taken small amounts of ketamine and methadrone/plant fertilizer) (no sleep).

I'm 26 and have been taking cocaine on a regular but not daily or weekly basis for about 6 years, I usually consume 2-4 grams of average to good quality cocaine on one night about once a month, sometimes more often.

I have read that it could be caused by nerve damage or a panic attacks (I am not prone to panic attacks).

Is this a sign the cocaine is taking a toll on my heart (Could reduced blood flow have caused it)?

A small panic attack brought on by cocaine/alcohol/sleep depravation (I was map reading/directing out of a city center when it happened)?

Does the pins and needles sound like a big problem or a momentary condition of little consequence?

Any advice would be welcome.
