Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...
You may have developed a thrombo-phlebitis
(i.e. an inflamation of the vein with blood clots
) and probably an additional tissue infection also. The symptoms which you have mentioned are worrisome and so, I would advise you to see a doctor at the earliest, in order to prevent further complications.
Please remember, that iv drug abuse
can cause many harmful and dangerous consequences. Blood clots and infections can be transmitted through the blood stream to the heart and can cause life-threatening consequences also. If you are finding it difficult to give up drugs, please seek the help of a professional.
Wish you all the best.
