Answer

Hello, thank you for reaching out to us.
 
It’s brave of you to share what’s going on, and we’re here to support you. If your heart is racing and you’re feeling pain after taking cocaine, it’s important to take this seriously. Cocaine can have significant effects on your heart and overall health.
 
First, try to stay calm and breathe slowly. If you have a trusted adult or friend nearby, let them know what’s happening. They might help you feel less alone and can assist if your condition worsens. It’s crucial to seek medical attention immediately because a racing heart and pain could indicate a serious issue. Remember, we’re not medical professionals, but your symptoms are concerning and warrant a doctor’s evaluation.
 
If you’re feeling unsafe or unable to manage the situation, contact emergency services at 999 or 112, or go to the nearest Emergency Department (ED). They are equipped to handle such situations and can provide the care you need. You may find this article helpful www.childline.ie/drugs-alcohol-and-smoking/.
