Brief Answer:
NO!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

methamphetamine cannot show up in a basic CBC. For methamphetamines to be detected, a special test and preferentially in urine is required.

I hope this clear your doubts. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

Hello, I am a 34 year old gay male who has smoked methamphetamine for 4 months now, after 5 years being sober. I am HIV positive, but am being treated. I also heavily use prescription opiate pain medications. The cause for alarm is that I am seeing blood-tinged mucus and constipation in my bowel movements. As well was as slight pain in my abdomen, along with bloating/gas. Could this be related to the meth use, or is it something entirely different? My boyfriend is experiencing similar symptoms regarding the mucus (he also uses methamphetamine). What should we do?

with the past month I have noticed this gross mucus in my stool . It ranges in color from white to having a greenish tinge. Also It is difficult to pass bowel movements; it s painful and little comes out. Even when I do not have to use the restroom I am aware of the discomfort in my erm anus? Everytime I use the restroom even just to pee I feel this urge to poo along with a strainful discomfort in my anus, and there is always mucus when I wipe (from my bum) whether go number one or number two. I am a daily crystal methamphetamine user (intranasally) and have been for the past 7 months, but I quit for 3 weeks and just started again a few days ago. This problem actually started after I quit. I am a female age 24 5 3 normal weight was 115 lbs but I m currently only 100, but that is an improvement from the frightening 89 pounds I was about two months ago. Ever since I realized how thin I d become I ve been avidly eating even when not hungry- all healthy foods , tons of protein and also protein shakes , taking multivitamins, drinking more water, and sleeping more. I still feel hideous because I m so bony, but I m not losing weight anymore. I do intend to banish my addiction but it certainly is a struggle. I know the meth is terrible for me but for now (especially because I have stopped neglecting eating and sleeping) I just really want to know what this whole mucus and pain/discomfort business means. Thank you.
