Dear Worried.

My main advice is – never touch cocaine again. Your pain does not sound at all like heart pain, but cocaine can cause major heart problems, including heart attack and death - quite apart from all the other problems that it can cause. If you are really worried about your heart, the very first thing to do is stop using cocaine. I am sure the chest pain will all disappear and your whole future will be much brighter.

Best of luck. JT
