so ive been smoking everyday for a while now, since about october. it has worked quite nicely in relieving my GERD symptoms but lately it has made my throat tighten up and i believe acid to go up into my nose. the throat tightening is like breathing through a straw and there is constant swallowing, also im not sure which came first, but i also had a crippling panic attack. now since cannabis has helped me so much before i didnt think much of the throat tightness because i thought it might just be dry. but this has been going on for a while and i was too stoned to think twice of it. anyways i would like to know whether the throat tightening was because im having an anxiety attack, or if it was caused from the smoke? i would also like to know, if smoking was the cause would vaping be a good alternative? now i do have a history of panic attacks with cannabis but after everyday smoking ive gotten usedto it and theyve never caused any real issues, but im now also wondering if its the panic attacks causing the throat tightening and if so what i should do about it. i would really like it if i didnt haveto stop my cannabis use because for the most part ive really enjoyed it. sorry if this is in the wrong board im new to this site!
