I have strange pain and symptoms in both arms after smoking crystal meth

Strange pain and symptoms in both arms after smoking crystal meth I m a 19 y/o F, 5 5 and 130 pounds and I was wondering about weird symptoms I am having in both arms. What does it mean when your arms get a tingly/ numbness sensation, sharp pain shooting down them that worsens when you bend them, and weakness and your veins are very visibly bulging out after smoking meth? Are these signs of a blood clot? Also the area around the veins down by my right wrist are bluish-purple and looks like there is a big bruise over them and there also looked like a slight rash was developing on the inside of my left elbow, but that went away pretty quickly. These symptoms appeared about an hour and a half after smoking crystal meth. Has this ever happened to anyone, and can you tell me what it is? Thanks for the help!

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Meth causes hypertension and raises the chance of aneurysm and arterial dissection which can cause clots and arterial blocks. Consult your Surgeon or go to the ER immediately. Do not delay. You need to stop using Meth. Enroll into a deaddiction program.
