Too much caffeine and cigarettes.

I know that I drink too much pop and I should quit smoking but recently I've had a sore throat, headaches, and my arms and legs have been tingling. Could these things be caused by my bad habits or is this a more serious problem?

...You know, coffeine and cigaretts are worse than we think...
Yes, the tigling feeling, the headaches are caused by too much caffeine, now about the soar through, it could be that you smoked too much for one day... or who knows...
When I read your post it kinda sounded like me...
I have been a smoker for 11 years now (nothing to be proud of) and am a coffee freak!
The outcome? Well, except for the very frequent migrains (some times everyday for a week), that tiggling feeling in the bones of my legs that I so much hate, an ulcer, 3 days ago I was diagnossed with gastritis as well!
Doctor said, absolutly NO caffeine, NO smoking, as wierd as it may sound, smoking bothers the stomach!

Well, I hope this helps...
Best of Luck!

Re: Too much caffeine and cigarettes.

With your throat hurting that is a sign to put the cigaretts down. I only smoke for a few years but at the end my thoat started killing and I had to quick because I didn't want to make it worse. I still drink a lot of coffee but I am proud to at least kick the other dirty habit.

this could be due to lack of oxygen from smoking. Could also be a symptom of anxiety.
All of the symptoms you've desribed sound like side effects of your bad habits.
You know you need to quit, now is the time to do it.
Good luck

I just wanted to add that this is very true. Tingling can be from anxiety or the beginning of a panic attack...eek. They suck. Or when you have too much caffeine you feel wired and get a tingling sensation...which is usually followed by a healthy bowel

Just take care of yourself and be well.
