Brief Answer:
No proven interaction

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for posting your concern in the HCM.
Firstly, I am shocked to know that you delivered only 5 months back and now you are on crystal meth. I can understand that you are possible going through the worst days of your life. But, this cannot justify taking a substance that is so harmful.
PLEASE STOP TAKING CRYSTAL METHS FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR BABY.
Secondly, I can say crystal meths can affect virtually any organ system. It is also a potent neurotoxic, that can cause progressive and irreversible damage.
There is no proven interaction between implanon and meths.
I think they are due to meths only and have been killing you.
But, to quit that, you need psychiatrist consultation to avoid withdrawal symptoms. Also you need to cope with this stress. You need to be resilient enough to fight this.
If you need any further information, please write back.
Regards,
Dr. Kaushik

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
