    Hi everyone. Just wanted to share my experience of being smoke free for 4 months. I've been having alot of headaches that come and go and weird aches and sensations in my arms, feet, legs over the last few days all of which comes and goes. Is this something anyone has experienced after 4 months of quitting or is it something else I should worry about. I've been super paranoid about my health ever since quitting and always feel like I have a terrible disease whenever I get these pains. When I was a smoker I never had any pain or sensations. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hi lukinater,

    First of all, congratulations on 4 months being smoke-free!

    Sometimes people get headaches and, due to better circulation after quitting, may have an increase in sensations in their extremities. However,  'pain' is not a "typical" withdrawal symptoms.

    If these sensations are a concern for you, as it seems they are, please make an appointment with your healthcare provider.

    Best,
