I am an attempting recovery heroin addict. I have been relapsing for a couple weeks, and today suddenly my ankles were very swollen compared to normal. I am very nervous and unsure what to do. Should I go to an ER? Is it OK to wait for the weekend to be over? It was an older needle, could it have possibly had old blood or a clot in it that I injected? Should I be icing or heating to help? What will they do if its a clot? Am I going to lose anything? I m very scared.
