Its not possible to have a MS relapse after smoking; however its beeen proven that once you stop smoking, your body goes thru so many (positive) changes that you are going to have some issues. Coughing, sore throat, head aches, even flu like symtoms can present, these are usually short term.
You may FEEL like you are having a relapse, but youre probably not. And, if you are, its not due to stopping smoking. Its due to the chemicals in your body coming out. Congratulations if you actually managed to stop! Youre going to go thru a period of feeling worse prior to feeling better; but STICK WITH IT! ITs the best long term thing you can do for your body!
Yeah...well I am having Facial paresthesias and body weakness. The paresthesias are so annoying and they always scare me into thinking Im going to relapse. Perhaps the stress of withdrawal is making things act up.
Nicotine withdrawal can add stress which can cause problems, but the good benefits will certainly help and win out. Your facial problems could indeed be MS as is body weakness. The latter, however, can overlap with nicotine withdrawal.
Stay with your plan for quitting. If you can deal with MS, you can deal with giving up on tobacco!
