Numbness and tingling in the hand after the use of meth. What is happening?

I have been a meth user for a couple of years now, I have been injecting it for a little over a year now. For the past 5 days I have had no sleep. When I did finally go to sleep, the next morning my whole left hand is numb and has a tingling feeling. Feels as though the blood is not flowing correctly through the veins. It also feels like my hand is the size of a basketball. What is happening and should i be very worried?

Could you let me know your age,sex, weight and height.

These are not direct side effects to meth,probably you are in deep sleep in the same position,

I recommend you to do certain movement exercises before and after going asleep,

Meth is dangerous you must start to reduce the intake slowly and stop with tapering doses over 2 yrs

Wish you Good Health
