I took meth and now I m experiencing a swollen gland feeling in my throat

Hi I m a 21 year old female, I am 5ft4 and I weigh 11 stone. I used meth speed yesterday for the second time. The first time I did it, I only did a small amount and wrapped it in cigarette paper and swallowed it, but yesterday, I took it from a spoon, swirled it around my mouth, then washed it down with a glass of wine. And I took a lot more than I did before. Now I m experiencing a swollen gland feeling in my throat and I have a huge white sore underneath my tongue that s causing some pain and discomfort. Is it due to me taking the speed and what can I do to get rid of it? I don t usually take drugs and I certainly will not be doing it again! Thank you for taking your time to read this, I hope you can help.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. It looks like the sore in the mouth has formed after taking the drug. Do not take this drug, and avoid spicy or acidic foods during this time. You can use topical ointments like numbing ointments, such as benzocaine, anti-inflammatory (steroid) gels, benadryl allergy liquid mouthwash, oral preparations of steroids and vitamin supplements.

If the sore lasts for a few days then get it checked from an oral surgeon.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
