Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. It is not uncommon to have these symptoms when you are shooting up on the meth. I suggest that you visit with a doctor immediately and if you need to go to the ER to find a doctor it might be a good idea. I hope you find relief as soon as possible and stop the usage of intravenous meth. You might eventually need to consult a psychiatrist as well as a substance abuse counselor.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
