    Long term health problems caused by drug use

    Fri Sep 06, 2019 6:16 pm

    Hello There,

    I've used Ice now for probably a good ten years on and off. I'm in fairly good health, but I've been experiencing shoulder pain and knee pain.
    I'll see the doctor about this soon, but was just curious if ice use can cause arthritis? I've tried looking for information on the internet but haven't found anything!!!

    My question is: What are the long term health effects on the body? I'm aware of the obvious problems, like teeth problems and changes in the brain, but what about the rest of the body and can these health issues be reversed?
